Stormzy getting Glastonbury advice from Adele and Ed Sheeran
Stormzy is getting Glastonbury advice from the best talent in music, with the likes of Adele and Ed Sheeran coaching the rapper ahead of his first headline performance.
The Vossi Bop rapper is set to headline the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm on Friday for the first time, making history for the British rap scene.
It means Stormzy, 25, is following in the footsteps of his famous pals like Adele, 31, and Ed, 28, who headline Glastonbury in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Oh, not to mention he’s also got Coldplay’s Chris Martin giving him a helping hand and, if there’s anyone who should know a thing or to about headlining the Pyramid Stage, it would be the frontman of the band who have done the deed four times.
Sharing the advice his pals have given him, Stormzy said on KISS on Wednesday: ‘This is real name-dropping – I’ve spoken to Ed, Chris Martin and Adele about it. They’ve given me the tips and powers.
‘That sounds like a cliche, “Oh go do your thing”, but that’s what they’ve said.’
Stormzy, real name Michael Omari Owuo Jr, admitted that he has some nerves about his first Glasto headline slot and who can blame him?
The Big For Your Boots rapper said: ‘The Glasto stage is the world stage, the biggest in the world.
‘It’s a challenge for myself but also me saying I’m Stormzy, I’ll give you a headline show and I might just give you the biggest one the country’s ever seen. That’s fighting talk.’
We. Are. Ready.
But he added: ‘It’s two sides of the coin because one day, I’ll say I’m really scared and there’s times where I’ll say, “Nah I’m the man”.’
Stormzy released his brand new single Crown last week and confirmed his anticipated second album is on the way.
The British rapper revealed: ‘It’s definitely coming and I’m so excited. Everyone says the second album is difficult because of what you’ve achieved with the first, but also you need to take it to the next level.
‘It’s about balancing new with old and I know I’ve done the best job I need to make and coming with quality music.’
Glastonbury has already opened its gates to festival-goers and will see The Killers and The Cure headline the Pyramid Stage until 30 June.
