Ed Sheeran Releases New Video with Lil Baby for ‘2Step,’ With Proceeds Donated to Ukraine Relief
Ed Sheeran released the music video for ‘2Step’ with Lil Baby on Friday (April 22).
The singer revealed he filmed it in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, just days before Russia invaded the country.
“I filmed the video for ‘2Step’ in the city of Kyiv, Ukraine before the devastating acts of violence started to take place,” Sheeran says in a statement at the top of the video. “It was my first time visiting the country and I felt so welcomed during my stay there – everyone from the production crew to the many people I met across my days off. Ukraine is a proud and resilient country and I’m grateful to have had the chance to film my video there. I stand with Ukraine and will be donating my record royalties from YouTube streams of the video to the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal x
Radioaktivefilm, the Ukrainian production company behind the video, added in their own statement, “This video really reminds us of the best of times; it was the last video we did before our world fell apart. Watching it gives us some normality and happiness, and we hope you enjoy this video as much as we do right now.”
