Winner of BBC Music Sound of 2017 (the only unsigned artist to ever win this prestigious award) and MOBO nominated RAY BLK, follows her hard-hitting debut Island single “Run Run” with the release of the equally powerful “Empress“, an ode to black girls glorifying their inner “black girl magic”. In an industry that doesn’t always allow for that, “Empress”, an empowering anthem, is an equally glorious R&B pop thrill. “I want women to see themselves as queens” says Blk.
Directed by award winning Geej Ower, best known for her work on the acclaimed BBC documentary ‘The Poets Will Be Heard’, the striking video, shot at London’s Charing Cross Theatre, features special guest appearances from Maya Jama, Julie Adenuga and some of Ray’s closest friends.
“This is my story – done my way. It’s about seeing yourself, knowing what you deserve and it’s for girls to wake up and see themselves as empresses.” Ray BLK
