Skepta has delivered a live session version of his hit song “Love Me Not” featuring Cheb Rabi, B-Live and Sophie Ellis-Bextor at the Maida Vale studios. Skepta released Ignorance is Bliss back in May, a 13-track album which marked his return as one of the UK’s most notable MCs. “Love Me Not,” which appears halfway through the album,  sampled Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s 2001 hit “Murder on the Dancefloor.”

In his live Maida Vale session, Skepta enlists Cheb Rabi and B-Live for an intimate, slow-motion strobe light and smoke-filled video. Take a look at the visual for Skepta’s “Love Me Not” Maida Vale session above. Check out the remainder of his tour dates below.
