After a string of collaborations with the likes of Stormzy, Wretch 32 and now, SG Lewis, it would be easy to question what’s left for Ray BLK to conquer in the world of RnB. Her velvety vocals have already bagged her a MOBO nomination for Best Newcomer, and it’s not hard to see why.

Her latest single ‘Chill Out’ sits amongst a series of tracks that challenge “societal pressures” and “male privilege”, a recurring theme throughout her debut album, along with the highs and lows of South London life. Ray is a fine example of a woman using her voice as a social commentary, in the way Lauryn Hill did before her.

BLK has carved herself a space in my ‘most listened to’ tracks, and shows no signs of disappearing any time soon.
