Ed Sheeran Discusses How Eminem Has Impacted Him To Strike A Work-Life Balance

Following the birth of his daughter Lyra with wife Cherry Seaborn, Ed Sheeran has opened up on keeping a healthy work-life balance.

Sheeran shared some behind-the-scenes details about his brand new album ‘=’ while speaking with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, including how ‘rap God’ Eminem inspired him to find the appropriate balance between business and personal life.

Sheeran recounted learning about Eminem’s hard work when working with him in Detroit, and how he only works until the evening and then spends time with his children.

“I remember going to work with Eminem in Detroit and he was like, “No, man, I get in at 9:00 a.m. and leave at 5:00 p.m., I can go out to dinner and hang out with my kids,” said Sheeran.

While agreeing with Eminem’s approach, the Shape of You singer also stated that he modified his work habits to achieve a better work-life balance, which has shown to be beneficial to his songwriting.

Equals, or ‘=,’ by Ed Sheeran, will be available for streaming on October 29.
