After sharing a 15-second teaser of his new single “Scary” earlier this month, Stormzy’s finally dropped the menacing track in its entirety. Though he had promised to include soul singers on his debut album, that’s definitely not the aesthetic he’s going for on this single. The dark visuals for “Scary” feature a lurking Stormzy who lays down an aggressive string of verses—at one point, he’s in a noose—over a skittering beat courtesy of Sir Spyro. With “Scary,” the 22-year-old artist further demonstrates his impressive lyrical stamina.
While the video doesn’t clarify when exactly we should be expecting the emcee’s debut album, it does imply that it will be very soon (it’s right behind you).
Watch the video for “Scary” above.
