Stormzy became the first British rapper to headline Glastonbury this year. In a five-star review of the Friday night set, NME‘s Dhruva Balram wrote: Stormzy’s Glastonbury set was a reflection of the time we live in now. Being the second-youngest headliner in the festival’s history and the first black UK solo artist to have such a high billing would have weighed a lot on his shoulders.

“With anticipation before the night apprehensive, Stormzy does not put a foot wrong throughout. He shows exactly why he deserves to be here. Not too big for his boots, after all.”

The rapper recently opened up on his emotions after the set, saying he “thought I’d fucked it” due to technical problems, though once Emily Eavis gave him a copy of the performance and he watched it back, he “felt peace in his heart”.

NME’s review of Stormzy’s new album ‘Heavy Is The Head’ calls it “a broad-reaching, genre-buckling romp,” adding: “On his second album, Stormzy wants to do everything, all the time, better than everyone else. But he also reminds us that he is part of something bigger.”
