Hailing from South-East London, Ray BLK (Rita Ekwere) is an R&B singer/songwriter known for her introspective and sociopolitical lyrics. Her first EP, Havisham, had an instant impact. In 2015, "50/50" earned her a high spot on BBC 1Xtra's playlist, as well as Record of the Week from BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens. The following year's "My Hood," generally considered her breakthrough track, earned comparisons to Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse. Both "50/50" and "My Hood" were featured on BLK's second release, the mini-album Durt. Widespread acclaim among critics and fans of urban music led to BLK winning the BBC Sound of 2017 Award. ~ Rob Wacey
