  • Lyrics
  • Ill Manors is a soundtrack album by British musician and rapper Ben Drew, aka Plan B, released to accompany the film of the same name. The movie is a crime thriller set on the unforgiving streets of London following the disparate lives of various characters. This song is about Michelle, who was abused as a child and is now prostituting for small change.
  • This track started life as a freestyle rap called "Michelle," but Drew worked it into more of a Soul number for the album, although the original appears in the film. The first Hip-Hop version features on the Deluxe Edition bonus CD, which contains the entire Ill Manors film score.
  • The song's music video tells the tale of Michelle's life of prostitution, as well as featuring scenes from the Ill Manors. It stars Manchester-born actress Anouska Mond, who plays Michelle in the film.
