You love to see it.

It's no secret that ONE OK ROCK and Ed Sheeran are mates. Their relationship truly flourished when Ed took the lads out on his South East Asia tour earlier this year, and it ultimately culminated in a writing and studio session together.

That's not the end of the story, though. Last night during ONE OK ROCK's huge show at Yokohama Arena, they brought Ed Sheeran out on stage for a couple of songs!

According to reports from fans that were present, they performed the ONE OK ROCK classic 'Wherever You Are', before performing Ed Sheeran's 'Shape Of You' together. 

When we caught up with ONE OK ROCK frontman Taka Moriuchi earlier this year about working with Ed Sheeran, and making music with him, Taka shared, "We actually did two songs. He wrote lyrics and we made the melody together. He's crazy - in four - five hours he made two songs. It's crazy, so fast... I think you're gonna love it but I don't know when's the release. It was just a session".

Even more interesting though was the revelation that Ed Sheeran wants to expand his horizons and sing in a foreign language:

"He wants to sing in Japanese, so I'm trying to put some Japanese words on the songs. And after, if he wants to try and sing in Japanese, we can share the song. But I don't know, we'll see what happens."

Hopefully some of these collaborations will see the light of day soon! In the mean time though, check out some photos from ONE OK ROCK and Ed Sheeran's on-stage collaboration last night below:
