We say

After releasing his massive collaboration with Drake last month, north London rapper Headie One is back with this, another superstar studded collaboration featuring Stormzy and AJ Tracey. Produced by FRED (Stormzy, AJ Tracey, Burna Boy, Stefflon Don) and Toddla T (Young T & Bugsey, Aitch, Stormzy, Bugzy Malone), Ain’t It Different sees the trio impressively trade commanding and assertive bars against a distinct and sublime soundbed. Sampling the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Pretty Little Ditty (which was also notably sampled by Crazy Town on the #1 hit Butterfly) and M-Dubs' Bump and Grind, the track made an immediate impact on release featuring heavily across Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube and Deezer’s new release programming today, and will, undoubtedly, be added to numerous rap editorial playlists too. Watch the accompanying video directed by Taz Tron Delix (Novelist, Kojey Radical and Oscar Worldpeace) here. Expect to see this hit rack up millions of streams over the next couple of days and enter the top ten in the UK singles chart next week. A massive tune.
