According to The New York Times, while listening, the prosecuting attorney, Ben Crump, showed a follower a video clip during a concert in 2014. In the recording, Ed Sheeran mixed thinking out loud with the music of Marvin Gaye. Sheeran responded that he had “mixed one song with another”.

This is not the first case of plagiarism involving Ed Sheeran. In 2022, he also had to testify after a copyright case for the song “Shape of You”, but the judge issued a positive ruling for the British singer.
