There’s a star-studded cast for ‘Mel Made Me Do It’

Jose Mourinho, Louis Theroux and Usain Bolt are among just some of the stars that feature in Stormzy’s latest video.

The British rapper dropped his new single ‘Mel Made Me Do It’ today (23rd September) and he did it in some style, with a video that has been dubbed a “masterpiece” by one social media commentator.

Clocking in at just under 11 minutes, the vid includes the full song as well as a series of clips that fuse seamlessly with the music.

In one scene, Usain Bolt is sat at home in his mansion, when he turns on the TV to see Jonathan Ross and Zeze Mills interviewing Louis Theroux, Dina Asher-Smith and Stormzy.

In another, Stormzy samples the much-memed Jose Mourinho comment: “I prefer not to speak. If I speak, I am in big trouble,” before standing in a mansion alongside the manager.

A monologue written by Wretch 32 is then delivered by Michaela Coel, while a number of Black artists including Gabrielle, Little Simz, Dave and Headie One are seen walking through a garden dressed in white.

Fans were quick to praise the video, branding it the “definition of excellence”.

“Stormzy never disappoints, what a masterpiece,” one commenter wrote.

“Every great has a moment where they make a contribution that will resonate for a lifetime and put to hush all doubts! This is that contribution from Stormzy! Flawless visuals, cameos, flows, lyrics and entertainment,” another added.

One person tipped the song for a Brit award or at least or a Grammy for best visuals.

‘Mel Made Me Do It’ is out now.
