Many people were pointing out that parts of Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" sounds like "No Scrubs."

Well, he has now listed Kandi and Tiny (writers of No Scrubs) on the credits, which mean they are getting some big checks again. "Shape Of You" has been #1 for 7 weeks.

I wish TLC could get in on some of these major royalty checks. Do they get anything as the original performers? Kandi and Tiny should be thankful that TLC's legacy will forever last. They can live off of "No Scrubs" related royalty checks for a lifetime.

I always thought Wash Can't trust thots had some similarities to No scrubs. Especially the melody of the verses.

I said the same thing! Ed Sheeran is a nice guy. He probably did not even challenge it much, but in goodwill added Kandi, Tiny, and Shekspeare (No
Scrubs producer).

Damn TLC! Everyone seems to profit more off of their success than they do. Of course, the writers of the song deserve it, but the artist who work their behinds off to make these songs huge should benefit more as well.

I wish Tionne would perform Unpretty more during their big award performances. I would love to see Taylor Swift cover Unpretty and release it as a single as well.

I don't hear it, but let Ed bring them out during a performance. Exposure. Promo.
