With lyrics like “Sometimes you gotta lose the battle, just so you can win the war,” Headie One’s introspective verses resonate with authenticity, capturing the resilience born from adversity.

Produced by a stellar line up including Tay Keith, Tommy Parker, and Pooh Beatz, the track is imbued with a haunting melody and powerful beats, creating a backdrop that amplifies the emotional weight of the lyrics.

Reflecting on the collaboration, Headie One expressed his admiration for the production and Stormzy’s contribution, stating, “This is one of my favourites from the album. I loved the sample and 808s straight away when Tay and Pooh played it in the studio. Stormzy went crazy on it too.”

Accompanying the release is a compelling music video that underscores the universality of struggle, featuring both artists confronting their own challenges amidst the backdrop of their successful careers.

Headie One elaborated on the video’s concept, stating, “The video concept was to show people that everyone has struggles they have to deal with daily.

That’s no different to Stormzy and me, regardless of what people think we’ve achieved in our careers. We still have things in life we have to deal with like everyone else.”

The track offers listeners a compelling narrative that transcends boundaries and resonates with authenticity.
