The 'Lego House' singer says he is happy staying in his "acoustic world" for the moment.
Ed Sheeran says he is in no rush to collaborate with big name artists like Eminem and would rather wait until the point in his career where it's "not weird" to ask for a team-up with the 'Lose Yourself' rapper.
The 'Small Bump' singer was asked which big stars he would love to work with in the future, but reiterates that he doesn't "want any leg ups" in his career, and is happy staying in his "acoustic world" for the time being.
"I'm going to wait until a point when I'm on a level where I can make that call, because I don't want any leg ups now," Ed told The Sun this week, when asked about any potential A-list team-ups in the works. "I want to do my thing in my scene, my acoustic world, and then go over to the States.
"I want to be able to get up to a stage where it's not weird to ask someone like Eminem to hop on a tune," the 'Lego House' star explained, confining his potential aspiration to duet with rappers like Eminem sometime in the future.

Despite avoiding team-ups with big stars like Eminem, this past week Ed has been linked to a potential collaboration with Justin Bieber on the Canadian star's new acoustic album, following a series of cryptic tweets and pictures posted by the 'Boyfriend' singer.
Ed Sheeran is currently working on his second studio album, and recently revealed he has no plans to feature any collaborations on the tracklisting as he wants to keep the focus on his music for this next record.
