The theme of Ed Sheeran’s “Take Me Back to London” is primarily centered on Sheeran and Stormzy’s affinity for London. Or put differently, they are both from the United Kingdom and expressing love for their home country by stating a desire to get back to its capital, London.
But only Ed Sheeran sticks faithfully to this topic in hissolo verse. It is primarily based on the idea that he has been away for awhile, having “travelled a million miles” and is looking forward to “headingback to London town”. And once he touches down, Ed will “hit (his) friendsup” – as in get in contact with his homeys – and “go straight to the pub”.
Meanwhile Stormzy’s solo verse reads more like the way a rapperwould rep his hometown. He does not big up his ‘hood per se as much as thefact that he has a “shooter”, as in a hitman, on call. And he brings it allhome by giving a shoutout to the “South London boys” (Stormzy is from Croydon,a town in the southern part of London) and basically advising the listener notthe rub such individuals the wrong way.
The final verse features Sheeran and Stormzy performing inunison. It features them giving shoutout to particular aspects of Britishculture (i.e. the Brit Awards and Glastonbury Festival) as well as concludeswith the sentiment “there ain’t no place like home”. Despite this, its primary topicis not London or the UK. Rather for the most part it features Stormzybragging about his lyrical skill and Sheeran commenting on the emotionalsacrifices they had to make to reach the top.
Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Stormzy Jet plane headed up to the sky (To the sky) Spread wings in the clouds, getting high (Getting high) We ain't hit a rave in a while (In a while) So take me back to London Bass high, middle nights, ceilin' low (Ceilin' low) Sweat brow drippin' down, when in Rome (When in Rome) No town does it quite like my home (Like my home). Listen to Take Me Back to London (Remix) by Ed Sheeran Feat. Stormzy, JayKae & Aitch, 165,820 Shazams, featuring on Aitch Essentials Apple Music playlist.
So once again, the main topic of this song is the artists going “back to London”, as in their hometown. Put differently, they are both repping London and on a larger scale the United Kingdom. And in that regard, they come off like longtime homeys who are bound to drop even more tracks bigging up their ‘hood in the near future.
This isn’t the pair’s first collaboration!
