Stormzy has returned with new music, his first full-length track since his 2017 debut album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’.
Titled ‘Vossi Bop’, and inspired by 2015’s viral dance from NL Vossi, the track comes almost three years on since its initial tease, and is expected to lead the charge for the Croydon-born MC’s forthcoming second album, due out later this year.
The song’s video, which you can watch below, shows Stormz performing across multiple London landmarks, including the London Eye/Westminster Bridge and the Bank Of England.
Describing the track, the MC told Beats 1’s Julie Adenuga “I met Vossi on the internet. He went to get Supermalt, he was on his way back, and he was just dancing to this song. But it was just so infectious, and such a genuine joyous moment that for whatever reason, I went studio a couple weeks later, and I made this song called “Vossi Bop.” But this is like three years ago; 2016 I made this song. Or 2015. And yeah, I just had the spirit of Vossi in me. I think it just embodies everything that I’m about. The confidence, the humour, the style, the flair, the anarchy, the chaos, just the vibe. All of these things, I was like, “This is me embodied.”
