The music video, which is released on Wednesday evening, will feature cameo appearances from Hollywood actor Elba, rapper Tracey, Top Boy star Walters and singer-songwriter Mabel sharing messages of support.

It will also star rappers Digga D, KSI and drummer Matt Helders from the Arctic Monkeys, as well as featuring survivors of the disaster.

G2 Slime, real name Adjei Isaac, who features on the track raps about his friend Jessica Urbano Ramirez, who was one of the 72 people who died.

“Being a young local artist, it’s been great being involved in this project,” said G2.

“I attended the local secondary school under the Grenfell tower and I have lost friends, so paying tribute to them and the community has been amazing – I am honoured.”

Proceeds from the single will go to the charity One Vibe, which was set up in the immediate aftermath of the fire in North Kensington, who will distribute donations towards local initiatives for young people.

Producer Toddler T was keen to get involved as he works extensively with young people.

He explained: “What One Vibe is doing for the community is brilliant, they have my whole-hearted support.

“Recording some of the new talent in the area as well as the originators of west London has been a joy.”

The video produced by MDFilms is released on May 18 and takes viewers on a tour of West London.
