Earlier in the year when Ed Sheeran dropped his No.6 Collaborations album, he teamed up with Stormzy on ‘Take Me Back to London,’ which shot to the number one spot on the U.K. charts.

 

 

 

Fast-forward to November, Stormzy and Ed have collaborated once again only this time, on a song that’ll be featured on Stormzy’s upcoming Heavy is the Head album – the track is called ‘Own It’ and it also includes Burna Boy.

 

 

Stormzy’s album will drop on December 13 and as Billboard writes,Stormzy made history in June of this year when he became the first black solo British artist to headline Glastonbury Festival.”  Ed may have announced earlier in the year that he was taking a break from music but when it comes to friends, he’s game!

 

 

Below are the lyrics for ‘Own It.’

 

[Chorus: Stormzy]
Own it
Girl, you just own it
‘Cause your body’s on fire
Show me how to control it
And?go?hit your spliff?and get higher
Girl, I love how?you roll it
I put my hand there, hold it
I’ma be right by ya x4

[Verse 1: Stormzy & Burna Boy]
Lighters up, lighters up, one time, lighters up
Pulled up in the party, when you saw me, I was lightin’ up my J’
So go ahead and brighten up my day
Lighters in the air when you lighting up the rave
And it’s feelin’ like I met you here before (‘Fore)
Girl, I felt your presence when they let you through the door (Door)
Never had a bruddah give you everything and more
So I take a little piece and then the rest of it is yours
Mi amore, I-
E don tey wey I don dey I tell you
But, girl, you think say nah play (Ayy, ayy, ayy)
I know no wetin you dey do me
Wey just dey scatter my brain (Ah, scatter my brain)

Fuck lovin’ when I put you in your place
I can tell you love it, just by lookin’ in your face
It’s the way that you wind up your waist, I’m so in awe
Girl you never have to worry ’bout nothing
You know it’s all yours
You know you

[Chorus: Burna Boy]

[Verse 2: Ed Sheeran]
Lights down for the one I love
Right now (Right now), we never looked better
Forget our friends, girl, I love it when we chill together
And ain’t nobody gonna feel what we feel together
She want a kiss, I, I want another one
You love the sick vibe, I wanted more than one
Up to nothing, nobody knew where I was comin’ from
But we got the same mind, so I don’t wanna waste time
Bring it to me, come by, that’s what I need
That’s right, kissin’ your cheek, one time
I used to love bein’ alone (Alone), but now I can’t stand it
Reachin’ out my palm (Palm) for you to put your hand in (Ah-ahh)
Girl, you are the one and I don’t understand it (Oh yeah)
How you lighten up the room with your glow (Yeah, yeah)
‘Cause girl, you just-

[Chorus: Burna Boy & Ed Sheeran]

[Outro: Burna Boy]
Nananana, nananana
