The former Xscape singer/songwriters have now been given credit on Ed Sheeran's hit single "Shape Of You" ... but not for actually writing the song.

Critics called out the song's pre-chorus, which goes: "Boy, let's not talk too much / Grab on my waist and put that body on me".

As Genius notes, "Shape of You's" hook "is a melodic interpolation of the TLC hit record's chorus", despite the track initially only being credited to Ed, Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac back in January.
