Stormzy recently revealed that Jay Z was going to be on 'Take Me Back To London' 😯🇬🇧⠀
Speaking to Jonathan Ross, Stormzy explained, "Before that I loved 'Take Me Back To London' because I thought it was just going to be me and Ed and then Ed was like, 'Jay is getting on it.' It blew my mind. Jay-Z is my number one hero inspiration."⠀
"We got into the studio and we were writing for this song and then he just stops the music and he said, 'Tell me about London, I need some inspiration.'"⠀
Explaining how he turned Jay Z down, Stormzy said, "I was like, 'I know how it goes, Mr Z. You are the most brilliant, busy man and I will probably never get this opportunity ever again but hand on my heart, I don't think this is the right song for us. I don't know why I'm saying this to you but this is not the song.'"⠀
Wiley has had a fractious relationship with Ed Sheeran in recent times after suggesting the singer/songwriter is a culture vulture.⠀
Rich The Kid jumping on this Drill wave too. At first America had their own sound but their beat selection is definitely more UK drill now. I think we could have a UK drill rapper with a viral song in America in the near future. 💯💯

I’m cycling near #smithfields and see a full double decker covered with the album, could not help but feel happy to see a fellow #ghanaian killing it! You know the label have faith in the project when it’s marketed heavy like this.
Going through the album he delivered! this was my favourite track, the lyric I posted mainly stood out to me as it did not rhyme (not unusual in) but it felt like this was something he wanted out there and that’s why he didn’t compromise the words.
