Watch Stormzy bring ‘Crown’ to Jimmy Fallon
UK Grim superstar Stormzy has made his US television debut last night, performing his new single ‘Crown’. Taken from his 2019 album, Heavy Is The Head, Stormzy slowed things right down, singing the first few lines of the song a capella before his live backing band and stunning back-up singers kicked into gear.
Currently reigning supreme across the world with a global tour taking up most of his year this year, Stormzy celebrated the start of 2020 with the decade’s first #1 as his track, ‘Own It’ ft Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy topped the UK chart. He’s also come out on top according to many fans in a rap beef with Grime pioneer Wiley after delivering an absolutely devastating diss track, ‘Still Disappointed’. Due back in Australia in May, this tour is shaping up to be a massive moment for the rapper as he continues his world domination. For tickets and dates, head here.
