Backed by snarling production from Sir Spyro.

Headlining Glastonbury alone would be more than enough wins for one year, but Stormzy's never been one to settle. This year has also seen the return of #Merky Fest at Ibiza, the return of the Cambridge scholarship he launched last year, the release of the second book to be published by #Merky Books, a hi-profile collaboration with Ed Sheeran, and a chart-invader of his own with "Vossi Bop".

Barely out of the third quarter and Stormzy's still knocking them out the park. His latest outing, "Sounds Of The Skeng", is a little darker than "Vossi Bop" and "Take Me Back To London", but no less chart-worthy. Produced by Sir Spyro (who revamped the Ed Sheeran collab), the track sees Stormzy at his most direct, calling out the fakes and those too keen to seek the approval of US artists, all while Spyro's snarling bassline glowers menacingly in the background.

Directed by Henry Scholfield, watch the visuals for "Sounds Of The Skeng" above.
