One of the greatest Grime and UK Music exports, Stormzy, has come back with a flex-heavy single titled ‘Mel Made Me Do It‘, alongside movie-like visuals chock-full of A-List cameos, a short skit, and even spoken word poetry!
Wasting no time in getting to the bars, Stormzy shows no sign of ring rust from the offset, rattling off punchlines with ease and some indirect shots to unnamed MCs (we’re sure we’re all thinking of the same people) over Knox Brown‘s uncomplicated instrumental, giving viewers and listeners no distractions from the heavy bars dropping throughout – flexing his accomplishments while still putting all of his haters on notice.
Alongside the earth-shaking audio, the ‘Mel Made Me Do It‘ visuals punctuate each bar with references, and features cameos ranging from world-famous figures like Usain Bolt, Louis Theroux, and Jose Mourinho, to some of the biggest names in UK Music media such as Zeze Millz, Stylo G, Little Simz, Dave, the No Signal radio team, JME and Julie Adenuga, amongst many many more, with over 50 cameos throughout the 10-minute visuals!
Peppering the track with bars throughout, Stormzy still brings a more solemn touch to the single, with a Wretch 32-written monologue spoken by Michaela Coel highlighting the impact of Black British culture on the UK Music scene.
