“This Is What I Mean” By Stormzy ft: Storry
Storry releases the Deluxe edition of her album, CHIII: The Come Up, on January 24, 2023. Ahead of this release, she has shared “This Is What I Mean” – the title track of UK artist Stormzy’s new album. STORRY has been named a creative contributor in this album and is featured throughout the song. Stormzy’s album is a collaborative effort and features many outstanding artists and producers, such as P2J, Jacob Collier, Amaarae, India Arie, and many others.
On the collaborative effort, Storry says:
“I had met and worked with P2J on several tracks before – previously writing and recording together – including singing operatic vocals on Burna Boy’s Grammy Award Winning ‘Alarm Clock’. When I first moved to London, P2J called me back in for some more of that operatic sauce. Though hot sauce isn’t the main part of the meal – it definitely adds that extra kick. So, I’m excited to play a part in this collaborative record. There are so many amazing artists on this new album. What I love about Stormzy – besides his obvious musical talent – is his kindness and care for inclusivity and equity. You can see that with his collaborators and team. I too am working to build an inclusive safe space in the industry that I never felt I had especially for womxn, POC and queer folx. I’ve met a lot of my idols and they would often disappoint me as humans. I’m happy to say that Stormzy holds to his name and that is something I stand by.”
After the release release of her video for her song Bow Down, Storry’s Deluxe edition of her 2020 album, CHIII: The Come Up is a fresh take that will include remixes from Toronto’s Polaris Music Prize-nominated Junia-T, Toronto producer Jeia, Chicago electronic artist/DJ/producer, Roy Davis Jr., and London, UK’s Dustin Dooley.
