Give credit where credit is due.

Takema “Tiny” Harris and Kandi Burruss are now listed as writers for Ed Sheeran’s no. 1 single “Shape of You.”

The update to the credits comes after weeks of social media users comparing the similar melody between Sheeran’s song and TLC’s 1999 hit “No Scrubs,” which was co-written by Harris, Burruss and producer Kevin Briggs, who also earned credit.

According fans on social media, the pre-chorus on “Shape of You” (“Boy, let’s not talk too much/ Grab on my waist and put that body on me”) shares a similar lyrical rhythm as the chorus on “No Scrubs” (“No, I don’t want no scrubs/ A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me”).

Both Burruss and Harris celebrated on social media. Burruss wrote on Instagram, “Congrats #edsheeran @teddysphotos for having the #1 album! & thank you for allowing @majorgirl & I to share in the success of #ShapeOfYou! #1 for 7 weeks! This is how I dance every time this song comes on. #ShapeOfYou #Blessings.”

“Shape of You” is Burruss’ third number one single to be added to her résumé. In addition to “No Scrubs,” she also co-wrote Destiny’s Child’s hit song “Bills, Bills, Bills.” Meanwhile, “Shape of You” is Harris’ second single to reach the top spot.

Miguel’s ‘Sky Walker’ Reaches No. 1 on Urban Radio

Miguel War & Leisure Album Now Video War & Leisure Tour

Miguel’s single “Sky Walker” featuring Travis Scott has secured the number one spot on urban radio.

Totaling 4,690 radio spins, the worry-free track floats from No. 2 to No.1 (Feb. 10), after N.E.R.D and Rihanna’s “Lemon” had a decline in radio spins. “Sky Walker,” which has over 106 million streams on Spotify, has spent nearly five months on the urban radio chart since debuting at No. 50 last September.

This is Miguel’s first time in five years of landing a number one single on urban radio as the lead artist. Before War & Leisure’s “Sky Walker,” Miguel commanded the chart with his 2012 hit “Adorn” from Kaleidoscope Dream. Before that, his other number one singles were “Quickie” and “Sure Thing” from his debut album, All I Want Is You.

Miguel will take the stage at the 2018 Broccoli City Festival along with Daniel Caesar and H.E.R.
