Stormzy Apologies For Cheating On Maya Jama On New Album
Stormzy has apologised for cheating on Maya Jama in a song on his new album.
The grime artist split up with the presenter in August and has laid bare his unfaithfulness in 'Lessons', which is the 15th track on Heavy is the Head, which was released yesterday (Friday 13 December).
In the reflective song, the 26-year-old admits that he 'done the dirt' and says 'you cannot imagine how I'm sorry'. If there was any doubt about who he was referring to, he even namechecks his 25-year-old former flame in the second verse.
In the candid tune, the musician says:
"I done the dirt and then I figured that you'll dig it out,
But that's a coward move, I guess you got me figured out.
I know you'll never listen now."
In the second verse, he continues:
"Fast forward now, my nephew's still asking for his Auntie Maya,
Guess this is the karma for what I done to Maya.
I just stood and let it burn, I couldn't done the fire,
Lord, I pray you make it easy, that's my one desire.
God loves a trial, I can't even fathom what I probably had you going through,
You cannot imagine how I'm sorry, man, I'm showing you.
Now I haven't even got the luxury of knowing you,
We was even meant to share a seed and let it grow in you.
I can't even look you in the eye, that's 'cause of shame,
Now you're tryna block me out your mind, that's 'cause of pain.
Greatest love I ever knew, I poured it down the drain,
Maybe it's the only way we both call it a day.
You gave me the world and then I gave you disrespect,
Hand on my heart, this is my biggest of regrets.
Thought I'd say it here than rather fling it in a text,
Until you're ready to forgive I'm always wishing you the best."
The Sun reported that the pair split the week after Jama's 25th birthday party.
A source 'close' to the TV and radio host told the newspaper: "Maya has moved out of their home in South West London.
"The decision isn't one she has come to lightly, but ultimately the relationship has come to an end.
"She wants to focus on her TV and radio career for now."
Heavy is the Head is the rapper's second album and it has received broadly positive reviews since its release, earning a rating of 85 on Metacritic.
