Is there anything more satisfying than a good cover that takes all your favorive parts of an already great song and adds a special twist?
Stormzy has just bestowed us with a wonderful Monday pick-me-up through his rendition of Frank Ocean’s Blonde cut “Godspeed” during an appearance on BBC Radio 1Xtra broadcast. Accompanied by a choir, the grime M.C. gave a powerful performance that has us reaching for the tissues.
In addition to “Godspeed,” Stormzy performed a number of songs from his U.K. No. 1 album Gang Signs & Prayer, including "Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 2," featuring queer singer/songwriter/producer MNEK. Check out the entire session, below—"Godspeed" unfolds around the 11:30 mark.
