unveils the new video for
‘BLINDED BY YOUR GRACE
PT 2 FEAT. MNEK’
taken from his album
‘GANG SIGNS & PRAYER’
Ahead of his visit to Australia later this month, Stormzy has unveiled the video for his hit single Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 2 Ft. MNEK (BBYGP2).
This year has seen multiple tragedies rock the UK however in the visual for BBYGP2, Stormzy wanted to show Brits standing tall, proud, and most importantly, united. He reached out to his fans from all walks of life, religions and communities to join him to show a united front against a backdrop of more adverse times.
This year has been a triumph for Stormzy; from launching his UK #1 and ARIA #11 debut album Gang Signs & Prayer, to becoming GQ’s ‘Solo Artist of The Year’ to his domination at this year’s MOBO awards resulting in a triple win, including Best Male Act and Best Album.
Says Stormzy of the clip: “The lyrics and what the song represents mean a lot to me and I wanted to show a different side to my music. Having the platform to be able to bring people together to celebrate this through a song that is close to my heart and seeing people from every walk of life coming together to sing in the video, all in one place, has been an amazing experience.”
The music video for Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 2 was directed by Nez from Pulse Films, known for his award-winning music videos for artists such as Disclosure and Rudimental. The style for BBYG Pt. 2 emulates themes from Nez’s previous creations; with a core narrative leading the music video, portraying real people’s stories throughout.
