One of the UK’s brightest sparks in the R&B world, Miraa May, has just released her video to the Salaam Remi produced, ‘N15’. In the visual, Miraa strolls through her beloved home of Tottenham, accompanied by her friend, giving the viewer a tour of her surroundings. The scenes are cleverly crafted, with a range of animations and also a trippy shot around fifty six seconds, where there are two separate moving images of Miraa and her friend superimposed onto the screen.
The song, which was in fact released back in 2016, on the EP that shares the same name, showcases her array of skills as a vocalist. She sings with a Rap flow, and emits a confident energy in her lyrics, which is warranted given her ability. Her soulful voice possesses depth and she is able to hit wonderful high notes most notably at two minutes, nine seconds of the track. The lyrics are almost an ode to her elusiveness yet simultaneously she shows bags of personality (especially within the opening clip) that makes the listener want to find out more about her.
With the release of more quality music, hopefully we’ll get to see more of Miraa May as she continues her ascent as an artist. A special talent, that has already worked with a legend in Salaam Remi, Miraa May’s star is destined to rise in 2018.
