Stormzy dedicates Superheroes video to Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman

The rapper said the late actor would be "forever a superhero in our hearts" in a caption at the end of the promo.

Introducing the video, Stormzy told fans: "You are a superhero in your own right, and don't ever forget that."

The animated video includes references to Black Lives Matter as well as fellow rappers Little Simz and Dave.

The track's lyrics also mention singer Nina Simone and Noughts and Crosses author Malorie Blackman. Stormzy appeared in the recent BBC adaptation of the novel.

Stormzy-signed author wins Desmond Elliott book prize

Derek Owusu's That Reminds Me follows the life of a boy called K from foster care to his birth family in Tottenham.

It has won the Desmond Elliott Prize, which is given to the year's best debut novel in the UK and Ireland.

Author Preti Taneja, who chaired the judges, said they were "as shattered by the truths of the story as we were moved by the talent of its writer".

Stormzy launched #Merky Books in 2018 to showcase writers "from all different walks of life, especially those who may have never had the opportunity to get into the industry so early".

Linkin Park and Stormzy did the story together

The grime artist features on their track Good Goodbye, along with Pusha T.

It might seem like an unlikely hook up but the band say they were fans of his way before Gang Signs and Prayer was released.

"We heard his stuff, we loved it and we reached out. He said yes," says Mike Shinoda.

Stormzy features on the band's seventh studio album, One More Light, which is being released in May.

Unsurprisingly, the only trouble the band had was pinning him down to record his verse.
