Crown Lyrics

Searchin’ every corner of my mind
Lookin’ for the answers I can’t find
I have my reasons and life has its lessons and
Tried to be grateful and count all my blessings
But heavy is the head that wears the crown

Amen and Jesus nameless, I declare it
Any little seed I receive, I have to share it
Bruddas wanna break me down, I can’t bare it
But heavy is the head with the crown, I still wear it
You can’t hold me down, I still cope
Rain falling down at the BRITs, I’m still soaked
Tried put a hole in our sh*t, we’ll build both
Two birds with one stone, I kill ’em both
Pray I never lose and pray I never hit the shelf (Too)
Promise if I do that, you’ll be checkin’ on my health (Cool)
If it’s for my people, I’ll do anything to help
If I do it out of love, it’s not to benefit myself, ooh
Gotta stay around but make her come back too
I know my only mother wants her son back too
They sayin’ I’m the voice of the young black youth
And then I say “yeah, cool” and then I bun my zoot
And now I’m-

Searchin’ every corner of my mind (Searchin’ for corners, lookin’ for answers)
Lookin’ for the answers I can’t find (No, I can’t find ’em, no silver lining)
I have my reasons and life has its lessons and
Tried to be grateful and count all my blessings
But heavy is the head that wears the crown

Amen, in Jesus name, oh yes, I claim it
Any little bread that I make, I have to break it
Bruddas wanna break me down, I can’t take it
I done a scholarship for the kids, they say it’s racist
That’s not anti-white, that’s pro-black
Hang me out to dry, I won’t crack
All these fancy ties and gold plaques
Never had no silver spoons and our mouths we sold… like
Don’t comment on my culture, you ain’t qualified
Stab us in the back and then apologise
If you knew my story you’ll be horrified
The irony of trappin’ on a Boris bike
Thought I’d stay alive and save my brother as well
Look at all these legends on the cover of L
Long time comin’ but we come to prevail
I guess a little bit of heaven has to come with the hell, you know

Searchin’ every corner of my mind (Searchin’ for corner, look for the answers)
Lookin’ for the answers I can’t find (No, I can’t find ’em, no silver lining)
I have my reasons and life has its lessons and
Tried to be grateful and count all my blessings
But heavy is the head that wears the crown

Heavy is the head that wears the crown

“My second single “Crown” drops at midnight. I’ve been struggling to find words to describe how much this song means to me…struggling to explain exactly why I felt the need to say what I’ve said on the record…and can’t quite summarise the journey of emotions the song takes me on when I listen back to it.” He wrote on instagram 8 hours before its release “I’m very proud of myself for making this song and I can’t wait for you all to hear it tonight. Nothing but love and respect for my brother @jimmynapesa world class phenomenal talent and @mjcole the genius and legend – an honour and a pleasure to work with you both my brothers. We’ve created something very special and close to my heart. CROWN – Midnight 👑❤️”
