Ed Sheeran is giving back uniquely! The pop superstar is releasing a music video for the “2 Step” remix and will donate proceeds from the video to Ukraine.
The proceeds generated from the video’s YouTube streams will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Last month, Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Nile Rogers and more performed at ITV’s Concert For Ukraine. The benefit concert also raised money for the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. A 20-second preview of the “2 Step” music video was released yesterday (April 18). And the entire video drops this Friday (April 22).

Earlier this year, Russia invaded Ukraine, resulting in a war that killed more than 2,000 Ukrainians and injured nearly 3,000.
“We filmed the 2step video last year in Kyiv and although it was my first time there, I quickly loved the people and the place. There was no sign of the horror that was to come to Ukraine and my heart goes out to everyone there,” Sheeran captioned an Instagram video yesterday.
