RAY BLK TEAMS UP WITH STEFFLON DON FOR "OVER YOU"

Ahead of the release on October 1st of her eagerly awaited debut album “Access Denied”, Ray Blk, one of the most powerful and important voices in music, drops her new single “Over You" Listen to “Over You” here: 

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.

“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 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. Fans can pre-order the album from: https://RAYBLK.lnk.to/AccessDeniedPR Also keep an eye out for a special announcement on Ray’s socials regarding her official merch store where fans will be able to purchase exclusive tees, hoodies, vinyl and CD’s! 

Alongside the single release, Ray has teamed up with Tommy Jeans and Vevo on their “Less Buzz More Music” campaign. 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.

Ray has also been announced as an Ambassador for National Album Day which returns on Saturday 16th October, and spotlights women artists and their huge contribution to music and culture through the art of the album. 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.

Ray has spent lockdown writing and recording her long-awaited debut album which promises to be one of the cultural highlights of the year, reminding everyone what a truly special and unique artist she is. 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.

Proving that she has other strings to her bow Ray hosted a 12-week run of the Apple Agenda Show with Mabel, Mahalia, Ghetts and many more. 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.
