Jay-Z gave up participating in the Ed Sheeran Diamond Certificate.

With a career of almost 30 years, it is shocking that Lil Baby has collected a diamond sign before Jay-Z. The Brooklyn-born rapper broke several records throughout his career, including becoming the first hip-hop billionaire, although none of his songs or albums have moved 10 million units. However, that would not have been the case if he had accepted an editor of Ed Sheeran to enter "Shape of You." The British singer recently revealed that Jay refused the project, claiming that he didn't need rap vocals.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the singer of “Photography” revealed that Jay-Z refused to get on the album, mainly because he thought it made no sense. However, Sheeran said it was a "very natural and respectful pass." “We were in touch,” said Ed Sheeran about his attempt to get a collaboration with HOV. “I sent the song to him and he said, 'I think the song doesn't need a rap verse.' He was probably right. He has a very, very good ear. Usually hits things.

Although Jay-Z refused collaboration with British pop star Beyoncé has helped in Ed Sheeran's single, "Perfect." However, the impact of the powerful couple on Sheeran is much deeper than their career. During an interview with Apple Music 1, he explained that HOV and Bey played an important role in his relationship with his now wife, Cherry Seaborn.

He explained that Jay and Bey invited him to dinner after a Brooklyn show, where Seaborn really joined them to dinner. “I learned [Empire State of Mind] for a Live Lounge. And then Jay-Z and Beyoncé came to a show I did in Brooklyn, ”said Ed Sheeran. “It was like the day after our first date. And she was there with my friend Martha and this guy, Foy Vance. So we went to dinner and then went to a bar and remembered that a guitar was passing between me and Foy. I remember playing this ['Empire State of Mind'].
