Music legend Elton John calls British artist Ed Sheeran on a regular basis to keep up to date with the singer’s blossoming music career.

The “Rocket Man” hitmaker invited Sheeran to perform a duet at the Grammys in February and has taken a personal interest in the flame-haired pop star’s progress ever since.

Sheeran tells People magazine, “Elton (John)’s continually surprising me with how much he (cares). He’ll ring me weekly just to be like, ‘Don’t give up. Do this single… I know you want to do this, but do this.'”

“For him to take so much interest in my projects is really flattering and humbling.”
