No Diggity – Ed Sheeran & Passenger

[audio:http://www.inherentlydifferent.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Ed-Sheeran-feat.-Passenger-No-Diggity-Thrift-Shop.mp3] Found this out there somewhere and couldn’t stop listening to it… Never was a huge fan of R&B, at least not in 1996, so while I heard the Blackstreet version, i wasn’t a fan.
