  • Posted 16 months Ago

Stormzy, sure to be one of this year’s biggest artists, has taken on one of the best songs from last year for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. He delivered his own version of Kanye West’s stunning The Life Of Pablo opener "Ultralight Beam" following a performance of his new single "Big For Your Boots".

He was backed by gospel singers and contributed original verses which included a shoutout to his girlfriend and a poignant reference to Damilola Taylor.

Take a listen over on the BBC iPlayer. "Ultralight Beam" begins at around the 2:14:00 mark.
