Stormzy Uses 'Tracy Beaker' Theme Tune On New Album 'Heavy Is The Head'
Stormzy doesn't like to play by the rules, and that's why people love him, but he's gone against the grain of most grime albums by dropping a kids' TV theme tune in one of his songs.
At the end of 'Superheroes' on his latest - and widely acclaimed - album, Heavy is the Head, Stormzy closes the track by singing Keisha White's 'Someday', the theme tune for the hit CBBC series The Story of Tracy Beaker.
The show only ran from 2002 to 2005, but is pretty iconic for an entire generation after being a regular feature on the after-school TV listings - and inspiring numerous memes in recent years.
People on Twitter have of course, voiced their opinions.

It's not the only track on the album that has caught the attention of fans, either - the song 'Lessons' marks the first time he's really spoken about his feelings since splitting from ex-girlfriend Maya Jama.
The emotional lyrics go:
"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."
Never one to shy away from speaking his mind, Stormzy posted a video on Twitter urging his fans to vote for Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in yesterday's general election.
In the video, the grime artist explained that he had never previously voted as he thought it wouldn't make a difference.
