hmv's Next Big Thing... #106 Ray BLK

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you soulful sensation Ray BLK...

 

Who Is She?

Newly anointed as the winner of the BBC's Sound of 2017 Ray BLK is a soulful South London sensation with a big future, but, as yet, still no record label. That'll probably change soon though...

 

Who Does She Sound Like?

This is soulful R'n'B with a biting lyrical edge, think early Lauryn Hill, Frank era Amy Winehouse and the spikier moments of singers like Brandy and Aaliyah. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

BLK's gorgeous vocals and lush arrangements might seem soothing, but her lyrics are much grittier and full of darkness. She's the complete package. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Of course, you can hear her new single 'Chill Out' below and check out her singles here in hmv's digital store.
