Ed Sheeran's No. 6 Collaborations Project has just become the year's fastest-selling album. As you probably know, it's full of A-list featured-artists including Justin Bieber, Eminem, Camila Cabello, Cardi B and Bruno Mars. What you might not know is that No. 6 Collaborations was preceded by - you guessed it - the No. 5 Collaborations Project. Released all the way back in January 2011, it featured some of the leading names in UK rap and grime, including Wiley, Ghetts and Jme. It was the final EP of five that Ed self-released around that time. This was all prior to him being signed to a major record label and releasing his first full studio album, + (Plus).
