Skepta’s fifth studio album, ‘Ignorance Is Bliss,’ was finally delivered today (5/31). It follows his 2015 acclaimed breakout success ‘Konnichiwa,’ which was awarded a Mercury Prize. Four years later, Skepta is back and takes his sound to a whole new level.
The 13-track album includes features from Wiz-Kid, Lay-Z, J Hus, Key, Cheb Rabi, B Live, Lancey Foux, and Boy Better Know. Skepta boosts his lyrical game with elevated word play and even makes several political references throughout the project.
‘Ignorance Is Bliss’ is a testament to Skepta’s growth as an artist. One of the album’s biggest feats is the fact that Skepta produced every beat, either solo or in collaboration with other producers. It gives the album a very calculated yet dynamic sound and demonstrates the range of his talents.
