Stormzy has been a hot deal and one of the artists who in the past week spoke on the Grammy issue and how people such as Burna deserved more. He then went ahead over the weekend to feature Burna Boy and Ed Sheeran in a new song and it goes without saying that this is the song every girl didn’t know they needed before end of 2019 and Stormzy has all the answers.
The three UK power trio; seeing that Burna is in many ways now based in the UK bodied ‘Own It’ in the most beautiful way. Own it is really an anthem for women; despite it being a ‘I spotted you and you look hot’ first listen kind of song, it is definitely about having women comfortable in their own skins.
The Nathan James Tettey directed video takes the same direction in that he has the video full of pure black girl magic. We have the bald girls, the retro girls, the curly hair girls, the braided girls and many more. The video is set in the night to incorporate the night life and club scene where all the love and life come alive.
The song takes on a rap-pop feel to accommodate Stormzy the rapper, Ed the pop artist and king Burna the most versatile artist there is. The three of them really show out and it is the one song that you will bop to all day long without getting tired of; catch a wave.
