Stormzy’s Mel Made Me Do It Music Video has more celebrity cameos than we can count ThePipaNews

Stormzy made his impromptu return to the music scene on Thursday night with the surprise release of his new single Mel Made Me Do It.

The chart-topping rapper’s new song was released alongside its 11-minute long music video, which has already got everyone talking – thanks in no small part to its seemingly never-ending list of celebrities.

To say the Mel Made Me Do It video is star-studded would be a definite understatement, with everyone from Stormzy’s music industry peers to cutting edge sports personalities making appearances.

Early in the clip, Stormzy appears on a fictional talk show hosted by Jonathan Ross and Zeze Millz, where his co-guests are Louis Theroux and Olympian Dina Asher-Smith.

The song also references football manager José Mourinho’s iconic “if I speak I’m in big trouble” moment.

So it’s fitting that the man himself also makes a cameo in a scene where he shares the screen with the Vossi Bop rapper.

Towards the end of Stormzy’s video, he also pays tribute to pioneers of black British culture, with a spoken-word section performed by Michaela Coel.

“Today we’re talking about foundation,” the Emmy-winning actor and creator of I May Destroy You is heard saying. “Many great black influential giants have touched people soul to soul for many generations.

“It’s often the word greatness that comes to mind, but football legends like Ian Wright make greatness come to mind.

“Our DNA gives us power. We can make a song and dance out of anything.”

Among those appearing in the sequence are football legend Ian Wright, broadcaster Trevor Nelson, singer Gabrielle and eight-time gold medalist Usain Bolt.

Joining Stormzy on screen are a number of his musical peers, including Dave, Little Simz, Headie One and JME, while Brenda Edwards also makes an appearance and pays tribute to her son Jamal, who died earlier this year aged 31.

As the founder of SBTV, Jamal is credited with helping to kick-start the careers of a number of huge British artists, including Ed Sheeran, Dave, Rita Ora, N-Dubz and Stormzy.

Stormzy is now gearing up for the release of his third studio album, which was teased at the end of his UK tour earlier this year.

After releasing his debut Gang Signs & Prayer in 2017, the grime star has headlined Glastonbury, scooped three Brit Awards and topped the UK Singles Chart three times with Vossi Bop, Own It and Ed Sheeran collaboration Take Me Back To London.
