Stormzy opens up about split from Maya Jama on new album Heavy Is The Head

STORMZY’S ex-girlfriend could feel a pang of heartache if she listens to his new album.

I’m told the grime MC opens up for the first time about his split from telly presenter Maya Jama on the record.

He added the song Lessons after the couple’s four-year relationship ended — which The Sun revealed four months ago.

A music insider said: “Stormzy’s never spoken out about his split from Maya but it really hit him hard.

“They were very close and lived together, there was so much history.

“Lessons is a heartfelt song and a real highlight of the album — he had to get it on there.”

Stormzy spent two-and-a-half years working on Heavy Is The Head but included the track at the last minute when he found new inspiration in his heartbreak.

The album — the follow-up to 2017’s Gang Signs & Prayer — has been a long time coming, with first single Vossi Bop reaching No1 in May.

He was still with Maya then and referred to her as a “goddess” on the track.

Having held off from playing the majority of the other songs on the collection for several months, the entire record is being kept under lock and key ahead of its release.

In fact, Stormzy’s team are so terrified of it leaking they are even reluctant to let critics listen to it.
