"Take Me Back to London" by Ed Sheeran ft. Stormzy (2019)

This is the second collaboration between fellow Britons Ed Sheeran and Stormzy.

Stormzy is a a "grime" artist, which is basically a subgenre of rap music, i.e. hip-hop with a distinct British flavor.  He has been blowing up in recent years and is now considered the UK's premier rapper, for lack of a better word.  He did a remix of Ed Sheeran's Shape of You in 2017, which they performed together at the 2017 Brit Awards (the British equivalent to the Grammys) as embedded below.

Take Me Back to London is featured on Ed Sheeran's album No. 6 Collaboraton Project, which dropped on 12 July and features quite a few popular American rappers also.  The two come off as homeys on the track, so I wouldn't be surprised if they release more songs together in the future.  You can have a listen to the track below via its official lyric video.
