“The A Team”

Most Heartbreaking Ed Sheeran Ballads

Atlantic Records

One of Ed’s earliest hits is also among his saddest. “The A Team” takes its title from Class A drugs like crack cocaine and heroin, an attempt by Ed to broach the serious topic of addiction with a bit of subtlety. Ed told Billboard the song was inspired by a show he played at a homeless shelter when he was 18, where he was taken aback by the dark stories he heard from the shelter’s inhabitants. Ed wrote “The A Team” for a homeless woman named Angel, whose stories of prostitution and begging for drug money can be seen in the song’s music video.
