Malik said in a statement, “I’m humbled and honoured to be part of this collaboration. My version of his popular song 2steps is about the trials and tribulations of an artist’s life and his journey. Ed Sheeran is one of the most loved singers of recent times and I consider myself one of his ardent fans and admirers. It’s a dream come true for me. ‘2step’ was launched with a very noble cause and I take pride now in being a small part of.”
