This features a vocal contribution by British producer MNEK., whose also sang on hit tunes by Gorgon City ("Ready For Your Love
") and Zara Larsson ("Never Forget You
"). Stormzy explained to The Fader
why he asked MNEK to jump on this tune:
"You know when you're watching churches, and a lady or a man in the choir just takes it away, and it's just like, Flipping heck, and everyone just feels it in their soul? I was like, 'I want someone to do that. I want someone to come and take this tune where I can't take it.' I listen to a lot of radio, and a lot of pop and R&B. I've always clocked with MNEK, he's got such a voice. I was like, I know he can go to church with it.
He came round to the studio, and it was like watching a magician work. He was able to record his riffs and his [backing vocals] and his harmonies all at once without hearing them back. He took the tune exactly where I wanted it to go."
