Stormzy Updates Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam” On BBC Radio 1

blame it on Meka February 17, 2017

Back in 2015, Kanye West took to the stage of The BRIT Awards to debut “All Day” flanked by a myriad of artists: Novelist, Skepta, Jammer and Stormzy. Now Stormzy, a 2017 BRIT Awards nominee, somewhat comes full circle with his appearance on BBC Radio 1.

Garnering a nod for British Breakthrough Act (alongside Skepta), Stormzy covered the GRAMMY-nominated opening track from West’s The Life Of Pablo and rhymed his own verses throughout the instrumental.

Stormzy appears at about the 2-hour mark on BBC Radio 1 here, while the song itself comes in at about the 2:14:30 mark.
