He might have spent the last 12 months plus telling us to “Shut Up”, but it looks like Stormzy’s got a gentler side if new track “Birthday Girl” is anything to go by. Devoting four minutes of sugar-coated RnB to celebrating his other half’s special day, the South London MC casts a charming spell over stripped down beats and plucked strings, with Sons of Sonix lending a hand on production duties. Not what we’re used to from the grime artists of today, but who’re we to judge? Have a listen below.
