Jelani Blackman And Jords Are In Celebration Mode On "Gorgeous"

October 04, 2021

Two of the most accomplished wordsmiths in UK rap, Jelani Blackman and Jords join forces to celebrate their wins on new track "Gorgeous".

Accompanied by ominous guitar strums and bouncy percussion, the track opens with a melodic chorus delivered by Jords before Jelani's low vocal rumble enters with a slick rap verse. "Gorgeous" also lands with a set of visuals that plays on the themes of celebration; directed by Louis Lincoln-Bottcher, we follow as the pair go about their day, handling business and enjoying the finer things that London city has to offer.

It's been a triumphant year for Jelani, who's enjoyed wall-to-wall festival bookings and even joined Damon Albarn and Barrington Levy on stage to perform their Gorillaz collab, "Meanwhile", at a recent live show. Jords, meanwhile, has enjoyed his own successes with two major league collaborations, "Enemies" with Masego and Kadiata, and "Old School Flex" with D Double E and Izzy Bizu.

"Gorgeous" arrives just as Jelani announces the release date for his upcoming debut mixtape, Unlimited Mixtape, which is due to land on October 29. Tune in below.
