Alongside the release, Stormzy also took to Instagram to pen a message he says was inspired by the rollout of Tyler, The Creator’s IGOR. “He shared a message with it and I wanted to do the same but I was hesitant,” Stormzy writes. “Mainly because I would love for my music to do all the talking but I thought I’d share this message anyway.”

“This is what I mean” is a follow-up to Stormzy’s acclaimed 2019 album “Heavy is the head”
