WATCH: Stormzy's icy new video for his grime anthem 'Cold'
Breakout UK grime artist Stormzy has released the official video for 'Cold' as a treat for fans following his album Gang Signs & Prayer, which debuted at #1 in the UK and #14 in New Zealand. The album features the singles Big For Your Boots and the viral sensation Shut Up.
On 'Cold', Stormzy told Fader:
My favourite line is: “All my young black kings rise up/ Man this is our year/ And my young black queens right there/ It’s been a long time coming I swear.” I just love the fact that I can say that on the tune, and it can resonate. “Cold” was a turning point for me, because I figured out how to approach grime differently. It isn’t a political “conscious rap” song — it’s a bubbly, fun, vibrant grime track. But with that one message, it becomes bigger than a song, it becomes bigger than me."
