Following on from the 2019 viral moment when “Alex from Glasto” Alex Mann nailed the verse at Glastonbury Festival, the rapper again brought out a fan for the same challenge.
At Coachella, Dave picked “Spike from London” from within the crowd to join him on the Mojave stage. Spike’s performance was hailed online as “special” and “crazy”.
“Oh my god, speak to the people, brother,” impressed Dave – real name Dave Omoregie – said after Spike delivered Tracey’s lines.

The original BBC YouTube clip of Mann performing the song in 2019, meanwhile, has now reached more than 30 million views.
“It happened instantly. As I wanted to see some other artist on a different stage, and the stage was only a few minutes away, and it ended up taking me half an hour to get there as everyone was spotting me everywhere I went,” Mann said.
Elsewhere, Dave has been nominated for Songwriter of the Year at the 2022 Ivor Novello awards, which take place next month. He’s nominated alongside Adele, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran and RAYE.
