Heaton (Instagram) covered the track in February and received a ton of attention for it. The viral website WorldStarHipHop featured the cover adding to it's popularity.

Teddy's Photos A.K.A. Ed Sheeran (Instagram) needs no introduction. Right out the gate with the release of his first single "A-Team" Sheeran has been one of the biggest names in Pop music. It's well noted that he's a fan of rap so there should have been no surprise whatsoever when the Fetty Wap "Trap Queen" cover surfaced on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

While Sheeran had a little back up from The Roots, the cover was still mostly acoustic. Sheeran has got soul and it shines through almost anything he touches.

He's been rumored to have a project with The Game and he actually confirmed some collaborations on the Power 105.1 Breakfast Club. His cover was incredibly impressive and earned over 3.8 million views on YouTube.
