Stormzy reveals why he defends Meghan Markle on new album 'This Is What I Mean'

Stormzy couldn’t torn(ado) himself away from defending Meghan Markle on his album This Is What I Mean.

On song Please, he raps: ‘Leave Meghan alone/It cuts deep when you deep that your house was never your home.’

The Londoner, 29, recalled watching Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before writing the lyric.

‘I must have made it, maybe, sometime after that. It’s funny because even when I said it, I didn’t know I wanted to say that,’ he explained.

‘It’s not political. It’s not rooted in that. It’s a genuine, “Leave her alone”… if you was at a bar, or you was at a party, and you saw someone, and it’s just like, “Leave her alone.”

Moving on to discussing intimate track Bad Blood, the chart-topper, who used to date TV presenter Maya Jama, opened up about how he weathered his heartbreak.

‘One of my favourite lyrics on the whole album is when I say, “Can’t you tell I love you, girl/It’s obvious,”’ he shared.

‘Because I’ve always said, as rappers or musicians, sometimes our love views or our sorrys, we wrap them up and we make them a bit stylistic.’

‘I just wanted peace. And even throughout the whole record, any time I speak about my relationship, it’s like I’m figuring out how I’m feeling… it’s mad love, and it will never be bad blood.’

Stormzy, from Croydon, also admitted he didn’t originally forecast a long spell in the industry.

‘There was a time when I used to think I can’t be a musician forever, because what it takes for me to make an album is so emotionally, physically and mentally taxing [it] is unsustainable,’ he told Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe.

He added: ‘Imagine when I have a family and then, “Guys, got to make an album, going to be flippin’ depressed. I was like, “This is insane.” So, I always used to think, “I can’t do this for the rest of my life.”

‘Then this time around, now that I understand God, I’m like, “Oh, it’s fine.” All I do is go in the studio, [and] we pray, literally, “Father God, be in the room. Holy Spirit, just guide whatever.’

And Stormzy may well be saying a little prayer as he battles an unlikely rival, Cliff Richard, for this week’s UK no.1.
