Her music features a blend of influences from rap to hip-hop, to dancehall to bubbling a sub-genre of Dancehall that originates in Holland.
She switches between styles as well as moves between her London accent and Jamaican patois.
Her two big tracks, Real Ting and 16 Shots are different genres and both have different styles.
Real Ting is a heavy grime tune where Stefflon goes between Patois and her London accent during her rapping. The song has drill influences and shows her hard side. Whereas in 16 Shots Stefflon sings as well as raps, and has big dance-hall and bubbling influences.
