Elton John and Ed Sheeran are two popular figures in the music industry that have been feeding the world with timeless music for decades. They both have fans who go hard for them anytime.
The duo has not been on a song together, but their fans would love to see it happen soon. Podcast shows and interviews have discussed something related to their collaboration, and there are positive signs.
However, John recently had some things to say about his fellow artist in the music industry. He referred to Sheeran as “Big Mouth F**ing Sheeran” which sounded like a shade.
Why did John make such a remark about Sheeran? Is there still anything going on between them? Keep scrolling to know the answers and also know little about what they have achieved individually.
Elton John Revealed That There Is A Collaboration Coming
Recently, Sheeran was interviewed on a radio program, and he revealed that he was currently working with John. He specifically said that they are working on a Christmas-themed song together.
Furthermore, in the interview, Sheeran explained that the “Your Song” singer reached out to him in December 2020 to talk about the project. John was inspired when he heard an update on his 1973 Christmas song.
The “Step Into Christmas” singer noticed that the record charted on the UK Top 10 for the first time. Sheeran said John called him on Christmas to tell him that the record was no. 6 on the chart.
John said he felt like recording another Christmas song, thereby asking Sheeran if he would like to hop on it with him? He also said he and John talk almost every day.
John Described Sheeran With Some Profane Words
In another interview with NME, John was asked about his upcoming collaboration with the “Photograph” singer. He was astounded that he was asked about it and guessed that Sheeran had revealed it.
He jokingly said that he is quite sure Sheeran has let the cat out of the bag. He spoke about how they wanted to keep it secret, but ‘big mouth f**ing Sheeran’ went to the Netherlands to divulge it. So he was forced to talk about it.
John said the song was supposed to be released soon, but they haven’t finished with it yet and that there is still some work to be done. It looks like John’s remark about Sheeran portrayed him as someone free from anxiety.
It does not look like he made the statement from a place of hate or anger. It’s unclear how much work needs to be done on the song before it’s released, but fans are hopeful that sometime in 2021, the first-ever Sheeran-John collaboration will drop.

Sheeran’s Intention About A Christmas Record
Sheeran made it known that he was never interested in recording a Christmas song until John reached out to him. His reason was that the song ‘did not suit his kind of person.’
Many people thought that the legendary status of the person that reached out to him made him change his mind. But in an interview, he said he changed his mind after he lost a close friend.
The death of his friend made him realize how things can switch up quickly. He felt that he might not be around to see the next day, so why not just record a Christmas song to celebrate the season?
Aside from their proposed collaboration, the artists have been working hard individually to release new projects. John just released an album titled “The Lockdown Sessions,” while Sheeran is expected to release his before the end of the month.
