“2step” is the ninth track from British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and his 2021 album “=”, which was released on the 29th October 2021.
“2step” sees Sheeran sing in a rap-like flow, reminiscing on his bad days before fame, feeling trapped in the rat race and the repetition of daily life; Sheeran suggests going dancing all night with the woman he loves. Sheeran revealed more about the song when it was released via Apple Music:
“I went by his [producer Andrew Watt] studio and we made four of five songs for the fun of it. ‘2step’ was one that I really liked. It sounded like 2010 me—it was me at 30, trying to be me at 18, singing about what I was going through at 30. I always had the line ‘two-stepping with the woman I love’ because I can’t dance. And my wife […] isn’t an incredible dancer either. But the two-step is what we can do.”
There is currently no music video for “2step”, however the official lyric video for the song was uploaded to Sheeran’s YouTube channel on the 29th October 2021. As of mid-December 2021, the video had received almost 2.4 million views.
