Ed Sheeran‘s upcoming x album is coming out soon, but there’s a duet on another singer’s release he’s excited about: Usher.

And he recently explained how he came to meet the “Good Kisser” singer.

“I was at a Passover seder and it’s a very, very small event, and I sat next to Usher and he’s like, ‘Yo man,’ and he shows me his phone and he’s downloaded my song and I’m like, ‘Ah, cheers, Usher!’” Ed tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “And he’s like, ‘Yo man, I’m getting in the studio later. You wanna come?’ I was like, ‘Yeah!’”

Ed’s x album comes out June 23 … pre-order it on iTunes now!
