Last night (February 22) Skepta performed ‘Shutdown’ at the BRIT Awards, having failed to pick up any awards on the night.

The London grime MC was beaten to Best British Male Solo Artist by David Bowie, but did receive a shout-out from Drake during the Canadian rapper’s video message accepting Best International Male.

He also confirmed that he is working with The 1975‘s Matty Healy – speaking of the progress of their collaboration as they both appeared at the Brit Awards 2017.

“Me and Skepta know each other,” Healy previously told NME. “We tried working with each other recently but it just didn’t work out. Just for loads of reasons – but we’re going to do something in the future.”

He continued: “We’re going to do a tune together. We want to do like a ‘West End Girls’ Pet Shop Boys [kind of thing]. Maybe start a band, just me and Skepta do a band. Well we’re talking about it, so let’s see what happens.”
