Of late, Ed Sheeran fans have been waiting with heavy hearts wondering if he will cancel his Mumbai tour (since he suffered an injury recently). However, Baba Sehgal is here with his new song Tape of You. And, we don't know what to say!

While the Grammy winner has injured both his arms in a bicycle accident in London, Baba Sehgal will injure your ears and most likely your soul with his rendition of Shape of You.

We think if there’s ever a zombie apocalypse, Baba Sehgal’s songs would be enough for quarantine. Sample this — "Mere paas hai tape of you/joh maine chup chaap record ki/ teri bajegi tai tai tyun/karunga report main fraud ki/ ek phone hee kar deti tu/mere dil ko chain padta/chal chal ree I am not tere liye free/gori mujhe jaan le ab mujhe pehchaan le tu."

If Sheeran understood Hindi, he would have gone into shock. Not only do the lyrics make no sense, compared to the original Shape of You, Baba has royally butchered the peppy track. Baba's song is far from being the balm to your Sheeran gig woes, it's the ultimate brain-cell killer.

Here's the video, just in case you dare. You might want to keep a barf bag handy.
