Stormzy has offered his support to the Duchess of Sussex with his song, Please, sending a strong message as he called for her to be “left alone”. The rapper, who hails from Croydon, also appeared to reference Meghan Markle’s estrangement from her father Thomas Markle.
Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr., known professionally as Stormzy, released his highly-anticipated new album, This Is What I Mean, on Friday.
The 29-year-old has already caused a stir as he urged people to “lower their tone” when he addressed Meghan.
Stormzy sings: “Please could you lower your tone, please could you get off my phone and please leave Meghan alone.
“I said please leave Meghan alone, it cuts deep that deep when your house was never your home.
“You want to speak but it’s best that you don’t, under pressure we fold, best believe we’re protecting your throne.”
In the emotional track, the rapper appeared to reference Meghan’s fallout with her dad Thomas, comparing it to his own relationship with his dad.
The rapper said he was willing to forgive him for abandoning his family.
He sings: “Please Lord give me the strength to forgive my dad because he is flawed and so am I, so who I am to not … to not forgive a man who tries.
“I see his soul, I know it cries …”
Back in 2018, in the lead up to Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry, her father found himself at the centre of a scandal involving staged paparazzi photos.
Following a health condition, he ultimately ended up having to skip the wedding.
Since then, Thomas has spoken out on numerous occasions about his estranged relationship with his youngest daughter and has asked why they have yet to reconcile.

During a candid interview with The Cut in September, Meghan was asked whether she believed there was space for reconciliation with members of her family and the royal family.
“I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy to not forgive,” said the Duchess of Sussex, 41. “But it takes a lot of effort to forgive.”
Meanwhile, Stormzy also opened up about his relationship ending with new Love Island presenter Maya Jama.
He seems to sing about himself and Maya going on to find new love after their breakup in the song In Need You.
He says: “I heard in the news about the guy you’re dating, you see my new girl she’s fire. . . you don’t care much and I ain’t hating.”
Stormzy also appeared to touch on the reason they split in Bad Blood, with the lyrics reading: “Maybe if you came in with a lower guard, maybe if we got off to a slower start, we didn’t even grow apart, we just fell apart, that’s the saddest part and I had your heart, that’s the maddest part.”
The rapper has been open about the couple’s split saying he had “disrespected” Maya.
Since their breakup, he has admittedly worked hard to make changes and take accountability for his mistakes.
