Congratulations are in order as Ray Blk announces she has officially signed her ‘dream’ record deal with Island Records!
From ‘My hood’ to a major record deal. Signed by the one and only Darcus Beese, president of Island Records. Ray is joining a huge roster of artists such as Drake and Ariana Grande on the British-Jamaican division of Universal Music Group.
“What a way to begin the year…I’m so excited to announce I have signed to @islandrecordsuk. Almost a year after releasing Patience, I took my time to grow and have now signed my dream record deal with my dream label and dream A&R @Darcus, who has shown so much passion and belief in me from day one, as well as understanding my independent spirit. Thank you so much to @kobalt for giving me the opportunity to do things independently and show people coming up that you can get shit poppin yourself! God is so great! Big love to my whole team at @firstaccessent, my lawyer Lizzie Payne James and my mum for the prayers. All the glory to God #knowyourworth #patience #hardwork #dreamteam”
