UK Global star RAY BLK Links up with Stefflon Don on a brand new powerful single “Over you“
The new single is only one of the standout tracks on Ray’s long-awaited 14-song debut album which features special guests including Giggs, Kojey Radical, Suburban Plaza, Kaash Paige, and of course Stefflon Don. The album has been a couple of years in the making and Ray is thrilled that she will be able to share her artistry, heart, and soul with her fans.
The track featuring the one and only Stefflon Don was produced by Fred Ball (Beyonce, Jay Z, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Eminem) and Rymez (Stefflon Don, D Block Europe, Ms Banks), and the accompanying video will launch on September 20th
Ray Blk says: “Over you is about enjoying the feeling of healing from a breakup. That sudden realisation that you no longer care about something that was making you constantly sad. You wake up one day and you don’t think about that person anymore or care to entertain them. I wanted to make a song about overcoming a break-up and for it to be upbeat so you could hear it in a club or in a party, as that’s where we usually end up when going through a break-up to distract yourself. I want the people who are going through that to hear the words in that moment and start to, or continue to, move on.”
The campaign aims to nurture positivity and looks to offer an alternative, through the power of music, to today’s hyper-connected world – from the news to social media. The campaign spotlights Ray through live video performances created for Vevo’s original content series, ROUNDS, a series of live performances by emerging and established musicians, using a 360-degree portraiture effect.
Revisiting iconic and influential albums by women artists, from the earliest pioneers to present-day legends, and pointing towards exciting new and future talent, the 2021 event will also highlight the integral role women play within the wider music community, not only as recording artists, but as songwriters, producers, and cultural influencers.
She also wrote and performed “Warriors”, the lead track from the hugely acclaimed 8 times BAFTA nominated film “Rocks”, which was also nominated for Sync Of The Year at this year’s Music Week Awards.
As well as this, she fronted a special Black History Blackout Radio show for Apple music which showcased her passion and knowledge about black women in music including interviews with legends Ms Dynamite and Estelle.
Following her highly acclaimed Oxford University and Ted talks, Ray was also invited by Cambridge University to discuss what Black History Month means to her and share her experience as a black woman in the entertainment industry with the Cambridge Union.
