Ende Juni spielte Stormzy den Headliner Slot des Freitags beim Glastonbury und eben gerade bin ich über den Mitschnitt davon gestolpert. Großartiges Set. Stormzy nennt es „The greatest night of my entire life„.
Die Tracklist gibt’s weiter unten.
Hot on the heels of this year’s ‘Vossi Bop’ and its follow up new track which is about to storm the singles chart, Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr from South Norwood storms the Pyramid Stage shortly before his 26th birthday. The first black British solo artist to headline the festival, the Wicked Skengman has been racking up the firsts since he debuted on Later… with Jools Holland and won his first Mobo in the same week back in 2014. Expect all the big songs from the 2017 debut album Gang Signs & Prayer, perhaps the odd collaboration – Jorja Smith, Nadia Rose, perhaps even his old mucker Ed Sheeran – or maybe this will simply be Stormzy the warrior out there on his own proving once again that his flow, his intensity and his cheeky vulnerability make him grime’s first superstar. There is only one way to find out.
