One topic among the black community that tends to cause more friction, more disagreements and more disarray than any other is the topic of homosexuality. Those of Afro-Caribbean backgrounds are often from deeply religious backgrounds and refuse to accept the many differences and preferences of individuals.

One such individual hoping to spark further conversation and acceptance is rising south London superstar Ray BLK, who heads to Jamaica to meet with the "Gully Queens" of Jamaica, who were once the focal point of a controversial Noisey documentary about those of the LGBTQ community, living among the drainage system, in constant fear of attack in the heart of Kingston. It was this very documentary that BLK watched and discovered the issues these people were facing. "[I was] amazed [that] something like this was going on and I had never heard of it. I thought there needed to be a spotlight on it."

Despite not having a connection to Jamaica (she's of Nigerian heritage and moved to London at the age of 4) BLK has always enjoyed Jamaican music. The video came together after a rather lucky series of events; BLK's stylist is Savannah Baker, who is the daughter of the owner of Geejam, a resort and studio in Portland. Baker's cousin is music video director Price, who ended up being stranded in Jamaica after her travel documents were stolen. Baker and Price got in touch with Carleene Samuels, who had worked with the Gully Queens on the Noisey documentary and Vogue's Kelly Conner, who secured donations and loans from designers.

In the long term, the team behind the video for the SG Lewis-produced and featured 'Chill Out' hope to raise enough money to lease and eventually buy a safe house for Jamaica's LGBTQ community. The video itself is a brave message of defiance, strength and solidarity that deserves as much attention as possible; it's a truly stunning effort.

She is also set to play her biggest headline show to date at London's Village Underground on February 27. Tickets are available now.
