Won’t ever let you down.
Rise up, Stormzy.
Stormzy – one of the UK’s biggest grime artists – dropped his highly-anticipated debut “Gang Signs and Prayer” today, which features an unexpectedly romantic moment with Kehlani.
When the tracklist was revealed it was quietly assumed that Kehlani’s appearance would be another R&B-girl-sings-the-hook moment, but “Cigarettes and Cush” is far from that.
First of all, the chorus is actually sung by Stormzy and an uncredited Lily Allen(!), whose angelic vocals fit the laidback vibes perfectly.
Kehlani and Stormzy take lead on the verses of the finger-snapping, piano-led ballad; an ode to relationships held together by marijuana. It might sound a bit bizarre on paper but it’s absolutely lush. A stand-out, for sure.
Stormzy also just jumped on the official remix of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” – adding some much needed energy – which they debuted at the Brit Awards this week.
