Wretch 32 feat. Jacob Banks - 'Doing Ok'

Album Info

  • Label: Ministry Of Sound
This is Wretch’s still-got-love-for-the-streets single, his very own ‘Jenny From The Block’, a rags-to-riches tale of how he used to tear about saying “brap” but now pays VAT. The jazzy, syncopated beats and Banks’ bluesy vocal almost redeem it, but then Wretch comes up with an immortal couplet – “Just like Instagram makes things look better/When I hit the ground I’ll live forever” – and everything collapses.
