Some of you will know this building as the Royal Exchange. The area above Bank Underground and the home of the Bank of England.
Others will know this area as the one Stormzy recently filmed a music video in, being surrounded by dancers wearing Boris wigs. The moment happens at 30 seconds, although it is fun to watch him rap on a closed Westminster Bridge in front of a half restored Big Ben.
This was before the lockdown, he is just rich and powerful enough to get Westminster Bridge closed I guess.
It’s interesting to see the setting of a music video. I know this area is much, much more than that but the song has probably introduced it to a lot of people. After all it has been seen over 88 million times. And here it is when it isn’t closed for rap.
I got the same beautiful weather though!
Not sure if rap is your cup of tea, but I had to share once I remembered where I had seen it recently. I do like that Stormzy is happy to show off certain parts of London though to the masses, and that British rap has come a long way.
Vossi Bop is a dance for anyone wondering. A good way to get that daily exercise in during isolation!

Beautiful buildings. I like a lot of different music, but not a rap fan. Visuals were good though.
The buildings are great aren’t they? Very European looking. Great visuals in the video too!
As soon as I read the title of your post, I couldn’t help but think of that one iconic line or two from the Vossi Bop rap!
It’s a catchy song!! Thank you for reading, it’s much appreciated 🙂
