Ghetts Celebrates MOBOs Triumph With Sampha-Assisted "Double Standards"

February 09, 2024

Ghetts has already had a hell of a month, all before the release of his highly anticipated new album, On Purpose, With Purpose. He's just released the tracklist for the album as well as the Sampha-assisted track "Double Standards", the day after receiving the inaugural 'Pioneer Award' at the MOBOs.

"Double Standards" is a solemn and soulful stream of consciousness, with Ghetts pointing out a music industry, a society and a wider world of double standards on either side of Sampha's brilliant chorus. Producer Emil has been on a hot streak of late, providing beautiful production for Unknown T, Odeal and now Ghetts.

On Purpose, With Purpose promises 18 songs, including features with Kano, Wretch 32, Pip Millett, Tiggs Da Author, Dexta Daps, Harry Aye and more. Probably most exciting for long-time fans of grime and UK rap, the opening track will be a showdown between G-H, Kano and Wretch 32. Aptly named "Mt. Rushmore", it will surely be an explosive opening to one of the year's most important albums.

On Purpose, With Purpose is due for release on February 23. While we wait, listen to "Double Standards" below.
