    Fair dos to him . But "take me back to london" means nothing when Jay z is In it. Doesn't it?

    The song would be terrible with jay z! it's about London ffs- it just doesn't match!
    The song is a love letter to London, just like his song "New York"
    Imagine if a brit was on that song? Ridiculous!
    So glad stormzy had the integrity to say- not this time...they'll be other opportunities to work together.

    It's sad that the English language has been deduced to bruh nah and whoah in an interview. So musical people nowadays lack lyrical precision and cannot even narrate how they wrote a song in the presence of their rap idol. Wow! Sad but true i live in South london and the majority of these youths talk just like this. No command of the english langauge or white in inner city london talk like this. Okay in the streets not okay on a live show. The world is dumb n dumber.

    Wow that's really amazing. I imagine that this has happened to dozens of British artists before. When they were afraid to say no to America and corrupted the meaning of their music in the process. Those artists never last because the music turns hollow and the hype goes away.
    This really makes me believe that Stormzy is going to be around for a long, long time. He will become a pillar of British music for generations. Just watch him do it.

    I’m actually surprised jay even thought that would make sense for him to be on that song as he can do no wrong to me. But that wouldn’t have made sense at all! Stormzy did the right thing

    Stormy really struggles to express himself, really poor grammatically, but a GREAT artist.
