Stormzy: “Crown” - 3 mins 39s

Stormzy gets soulful on his latest track 'Crown', released on the heels of a stormingly successful Glastonbury performance. Appropriately, the single ruminates on the artist's meteoric rise to success, and what it really means to have all eyes on the 'king' of the UK rap scene.

While the lyrics deal with internal and external resistance, the music and accompanying promo emphasise the track's gospel leanings. Director Charlie Sarsfield shows us Stormzy dressed in white, seemingly isolated in one long, unbroken shot before a choir of supporters is revealed. Stripped back work with a classy, classic vibe.
