Dave takes home 2019 Mercury Prize for Album Psychodrama

Filed in MUSIC by on 20/09/2019 0 Comments

It has been an incredible year for Dave. His performance on the latest series of Top Boy showed off his talents as an actor and his album Psychodrama was easily one of the best albums of this year. It was a strong year for nominations for the Mercury Prize with Slowthai, Idles and Lil Simz all nominated but Dave took the award home last night. 

Dave took to the stage with his Mum to accept the award and thanked his fellow nominees as well as his brother for inspiring the album’s content. Awards are definitely not the be all and end all of an artist’s career but this was a well deserved accolade for Dave. I cannot think of a bad record on that album, to me it is flawless from start to finish so it was good to see this recognised on the night. 

Watch his acceptance speech above via the BBC and let us know what you thought of the album down in the comments. My personal favourites were Locations with Burna Boy, Disaster with J Hus and Streatham. Do you think Dave should have won, let us know who you liked from the list too.
