There is a tribute to Chadwick Boseman in new Stormzy music video
Stormyz has just revealed a new music video for his song ‘Superheroes’ and it features a tribute to Chadwick Boseman at the end.
The video – which explores the father and son relationship, racism and everyday heroes– is dedicated to Boseman, and says at the end, “Forever a superhero in our hearts.”
The animated video also makes reference to the Black Lives Matter movement. Stormzy raps the words, “What a flippin’ time to be a Black Brit’ as an artist paints a Black Lives Matter mural.
You can also spot a nod to Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford, who successfully lobbied the UK government this year to renew a campaign to feed more than 1.3 million children over the summer break.
The video stands does a very good job of depicting just how polarizing this year has been.
