Last Friday (31 May) Skepta dropped his highly-anticipated Ignorance Is Bliss record. One of the tracks, “Love Me Not” includes a sample of Ellis-Bextor’s “Murder On The Dancefloor”.
Responding to the release of the track and use of the sample, Ellis-Bextor wrote on Twitter, “Hello Skepta ! Of course I’ve heard the track – I approved the sample and I LOVE what you’ve done with Murder. So good. Let’s do it live sometime.”
Ignorance Is Bliss is Skepta’s first album since his 2016 Mercury Award-winning release, Konnichiwa.
