Ed Sheeran Makes Surprise Appearance At Shawn Mendes Concert

(Radio.com) Shawn Mendes had the crowd at Brooklyn's Barclays Center captivated and giddy even before he pulled off his big surprise of the night on Wednesday (Aug. 16). During the hit single "Mercy," Ed Sheeran took the stage.

The redheaded Brit joined the 19-year-old pop star the second verse and the two artists harmonized for the remainder of the song. "That was just as crazy for me as it was for you guys," Mendes told the crowd after Sheeran left the stage.

Just about four years ago, a then 15-year-old Mendes tweeted, "To ever meet Ed Sheeran would honestly be the best, he's 100% the person I look up to for music," Billboard reports. For Mendes, it was a dream come true and for the fans who were still wondering if they'd hallucinated the whole thing, there's social media footage to serve as evidence. Watch Sheeran and Mendes here.

"I feel like my songwriting definitely developed," he told V Man magazine, 'just because I've been doing it so much. I feel like the songs are a bit more organized, where I felt like, before, that Mind of Mine was a brainstorm.

"That's why I called it Mind of Mine, because it was ideas that I had that I put out. This one is more thought out. I had more time to process everything and go through it all. It's an evolution."

Malik released "Still Got Time," the first single from the new project, in March. The track features PartyNextDoor. Read more here.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving Drama Made Into Eminem Parody

(Radio.com) While NBA fans are watching the drama between Cleveland Cavaliers superstars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving unfold, a fan has turned the situation into a video parody of Eminem's 2000 hit, "Stan."

The video parody plays on reports that Irving wants to be traded so he's no longer living under James' immense shadow, casting Irving in the "Stan" role and writing a sad letter to his superstar teammate.

'Dear LeBron, I wrote you but you're only subtweeting/I left my cell, my email and my address in Cleveland/I sent two letters to Dan Gilbert you must not have got him/He probably fell off the flat earth or something," are among the lyrics (referencing Irving's belief that the Earth is indeed flat).
