The track is not only the first release from Motown’s UK wing but a teaser for the grime motion picture Against All Odds. The accompanying video also features a lot of images that may be familiar to anyone following the UK scene over the past twenty years with homages to Dizzie Rascal’s Boy In Da Corner, Wiley’s Playtime’s Over, Tinchy Stryder and more.
Away from the hype though, Serious 2020 is a banger of a tune. The bass is big, the tempo is frenetic and verses impactful. You can check out the video below. Against All Odds the movie and soundtrack is out on 13 November.
