Ed Sheeran Grants Kandi Burruss And Tameka “Tiny” Harris Writing Credits On “Shape Of You”

Ed Sheeran has added The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss as well as her bestie and band mate, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, and Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs to the songwriting credits for his latest hit song, "Shape of You," Billboard reports.

The move comes after listeners noticed similarities between his track and "No Scrubs," which they wrote for TLC back in the 1990s.

So, what had everyone making the comparisons? Specifically the "Shape of You" lines, "Boy, let's not talk too much/ Grab on my waist and put that body on me" mirrored the rhythm of the "No Scrubs" lines, "No, I don't want no scrubs/ A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me."

Following the news, Kandi and Tiny, who recently reunited with their girl group Xscape, reacted to their credits being added to the Divide track. Ed's track currently sits on top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The ladies took to social media to share their excitement about the news.
