Ray BLK has announced the release of her debut studio album ‘Access Denied,’ the entire project was recorded during the lockdown and will be dropping on streaming platforms on 17th September via Island Records.
Ray BLK understands that to be heard and rated highly in today’s music industry, you need some big names to endorse you and so, she enlists Giggs, Stefflon Don, Kojey Radical, Suburban Plaza and Kaash Paige to help her do justice to the 14 tracks album.
“I’ve been looking forward to this moment of releasing my debut album since I was 13 in the studio with MNEK learning how to write songs and knew for certain I wanted to be a singer,” Ray says. “‘Access Denied’ is for those who like myself, know disappointment too well and have learned to create boundaries as a coping mechanism for self-protection.”
“I’ve opened up about how the childhood I had made me guarded, how disappointing relationships made me fear love and how being told no so many times in the music industry kicked me down, but I got back up. I want people to listen to this record and value themselves enough to deny access to those who are undeserving, and to also value themselves enough to keep believing in themselves when they’re denied access to certain spaces and say yes to themselves when the world tells them no.”
Ray has also shared a new song off the album titled ‘MIA.’ Listen to it below.
