The title single from Stormzy’s recently released third album, “This Is What I Mean,” includes a music video that features Amaarae, Black Sherif, Jacob Collier, Ms. Banks, and Storry, which the artiste just shared.
According to reports, the video opens with a clip of phone-shot footage from the crowd at Stormzy’s album launch party last week, before switching to a scene of Collier miming the song’s grand piano intro from inside an empty, ominously lit warehouse. A title card states that the video was shot on the same night as the aforementioned launch party, jumping back and forth between the party itself and similar solo scenes from each of the featured artistes.
This Is What I Mean – the album – arrived last Friday (November 25) via Stormzy’s own #Merky label, and featured the singles “Hide & Seek” and “Firebabe”. It was released alongside a personal message from the rapper, in which he implored fans to “listen to this album with an open heart”.
