Stormzy unleashes some fierceness in 'Sounds Of The Skeng'


"Sounds Of The Skeng", the title being a play off of Sir Spyro's producer tag and Stormzy's nickname "Mr Skeng", is Stormzy's and Spyro's latest release following their collaboration on the remix of Ed Sheeran's "Take Me Back To London". It's currently unknown if the song is going to be placed on Stormzy's forthcoming album, which is currently without a release date.

The song has a fierce confidence akin to that of "Big For Your Boots", with some bars that almost sound like a send: "You man ain't been entirely truthful, have you? / I know the truth can hurt". Coupled with that, Stormzy also reflects on his rise from being a kid on the estate to being at the top: "Aight, look, look, G in the south, but I live in the sticks now / Really been about, but they think I'm a prick now / Got a little money, and a couple of bricks now".

The single's artwork and minimalistic visualiser serve as a parody of the classic 1965 film The Sound of Music.
