Next month, moviegoers will head into theaters to check out The King’s Man, the third installment of the commercially successful Kingsman series that’s based on the comic book series of the same name. Functioning as a prequel, The King’s Man will take viewers through the creation of the Kingsman spy agency and stars Ralph Fiennes, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Djimon Hounsou, and more.
To help promote the film, FKA twigs and Central Cee have come together to create “Measure of a Man,” a John Hill-produced effort that sees the artists speaking to the high standards that make up the movie’s main protagonists:
“It’s the manners that make a man, but the hammers that break a man, damn, they wanted to see me broke, but I flipped the script and broke the band, young and wealthy, don’t let it overwhelm me, I still get fed, still can’t tell me, not when the system fail me, I still bounce back, I run this ting, got a lot of endurance, what d’you know about drastic measures?”
It’s been a couple of years since FKA twigs released her sophomore studio LP Magdalene, which saw nine tracks and a single assist from Future on the standout cut “Holy Terrain.” More recently, the British dancer-songstress teamed up with Headie One and Fred again.. for “Don’t Judge Me,” which brings hope that an official follow-up to Magdalene is somewhere in the works. Meanwhile, this past March saw Central Cee blessing his fans with his debut mixtape Wild West, a 14-song body of work that peaked at the number one and two positions on the UK’s R&B Albums and Official Albums charts, respectively. Since then, he’s released his share of top tier singles as well — “The Great Escape” with Blanco, “Meant to Be” with Stay Flee Get Lizzy and Fredo, “Little Bit of This,” and “Obsessed with You.”
