British grime MC Ghetts has made his major label debut on Warner Music with the star-studded LP, Conflict of Interest.
The 16-track project includes collaborations with artists from across various genres, including pop, R&B and soul. Aida Lee, Miraa May and Emeli Sandé contribute to the album, alongside other grime acts like Stormzy, Skepta and Giggs. On “10,000 Tears,” Ghetts reunites with Ed Sheeran, who previously recruited the rapper in 2011 for his song “Drown Me Out.”
“Out of all the people on the album he was the one who turned his verse around the quickest,” Ghetts told NME about working with Sheeran, who at the time was on a trip to Japan. “I really wasn’t expecting much, but then he hit me back and said he’d found a studio in Japan, during his break.”
“I was a bit hesitant to hit him back up [after there were some technical issues], but he got it sorted for me within an hour,” the MC added. “He’s the busiest guy in the world yet he still made time to do that for me.”
Conflict of Interest is Ghetts’ third full-length album, following 2018’s Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament. Stream his new release here:
