Wretch 32 has says he was “devastated” after losing all the new lyrics he’d been writing for his next album.

The Tottenham-born ‘Traktor’ star had all of his new rhymes stored on his phone, but lost them after dropping the handset in the bath.

He told the Daily Star: “I can’t find them in my head again, I’ve been trying and trying. I nearly had a breakdown, man, I was devastated.

“That’s the beauty of technology,” he added, talking to NME. “I can write wherever I am and there was all sorts on that phone. I know now to back up my phone regularly.”

Wretch 32 released his second album ‘Black And White’ on August 22. It went to No 4 on the albums chart, while most-recent single ‘Don’t Go’ reached No 1. The rapper, who tours the UK throughout October, says he plans to do some recording in December and will have a third record out next year.
