The record was released exclusively on TIDAL over the weekend, after being surprise-announced at the pair's London Stadium show on Saturday night.

"I said no to the Super Bowl, you need me, I don't need you". And he confirmed that he turned down the Super Bowl Halftime Show, saying: "I said no to the Super Bowl / You need me, I don't need you/ Every night we in the end zone / Tell the National Football League we need stadiums too".
