Stormzy On...Spooning, Blue WKD & Muddy Festivals
We asked Stormzy to share his opinions on a series of random (yet revealing) topics, from muddy festivals to putting milk into tea first.
Last Friday, Stormzy released his debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer.
It packs in the blistering tracks we were looking for, like lead single ‘Big For Your Boots’ (or bewts), ‘Bad Boys’ (featuring Ghetts and J Hus) and ‘Cold’, but GSAP was full of really notable surprises, too.
Stormzy shows off his deep, sweet singing voice regularly (“Man thought that Stormzy couldn’t sing”). He isn’t scared to use brass arrangements (‘Cold’), R&B influences (‘Cigarettes & Cush’) and to allow organs to take the lead on tracks (‘Blinded By Your Grace, Pt. 1’). There are killer collaborations (Kehlani, Wretch 32). Plus, that trademark Stormzy sense of humour beams through the whole debut (see the end of ‘Velvet/Jenny Francis – Interlude’).
It’s an incredible album, and you should go buy it. (Link here.) But before you do, we have an important video full of important questions to share with you.
MTV met up with Stormzy a few weeks before GSAP dropped, and we decided that it’s about time we found out whether Stormzy liked Original Blue WKD or not.
We also asked him about spooning, hotel minibars and more, too. Just for good measure. (‘Serious’ interview questions are incoming, by the way.)
