It’s hard to believe now, given all of his success, but it was not too long ago that Ed Sheeran was just an up-and-coming musician in Los Angeles looking for work.

Ed tells us in this EXCLUSIVE video that he didn’t have too many contacts in Los Angeles at the time, and he was trying to work whatever shows he could get.

During one of those shows he was introduced to Jamie Foxx, and after performing on Foxx’s radio show he even went to Foxx’s house. Wait, how big is Jamie Foxx’s house? Ed explains more about that relationship here.

Sheeran’s new album, ÷, was just released on Friday. You can buy it now on iTunes.
