Stormzy was on Radio 1Xtra’s Live Lounge earlier today, performing several songs from his album as well as covering Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed.” The set consisted of “Blinded by Your Grace,” “21 Gun Salute” and “Bad Boys” before ending with the cover of the song from Blonde. Stormzy brought out MNEK and a choir for “Blinded by Your Grace”, while he brought out JHus and Ghetts for “Bad Boys.” You can watch the Live Lounge in full above.
