***** I love Stormzy for spearheading a cultural movement back into the forefront that's often seen as too 'dangerous' or 'provocative' to get widespread mainstream attention. But through force of personality, Stormzy is racking up top 10 hits and getting A-list rotation on BBC Radio 1. In times where conformity is often beneficial to scoring hits, Stormzy's success makes me so happy.
And I love this track for so concisely embodying that state of mind. This is a song that straight up tells its subject not to be too cocky, lest they earn themselves a kick in the face, and I love it. Stormzy's personality shines through in the writing, where any tough-guy facade is lifted as he reminds the listener that he had a hell of a time seeing Adele live.
