ET Canada says that Amy Wadge was struggling with repayments just before Sheeran released his album X and asked the singer if she could contribute a song for the album to gain some royalty payments. The pair then wrote Thinking Out Loud which became a smash single for Sheeran, going multi-platinum in Canada and selling millions worldwide; Wadge will no longer have a problem with mortgage payments!
