UK grime star Stormzy appeared on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge and sang his own rendition of Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam.” Before going into Stormzy’s performance, it is important to acknowledge the band and choir behind him. They do a fantastic job for what appears to be a live performance.
Anderson .Paak and Ty Dolla $ign add a west coast flavor to BJ the Chicago Kid’s hit single “Church.” Both California-born rapper chime in with great vocals that blend in nicely with BJ. Each artist featured in the West Coast Remix to “Church” gets one verse, starting with Ty$, followed by .Paak, and ending with BJ.
