The Virginia-born vocalist, who climbed the ranks of ’90s hip-hop with Missy Elliot, Timbaland, and more, released Queen Alone in September via Big Crown Records. The stunning album is a rebirth of sorts; with autobiographical hints throughout, Wray uses each track to tell pieces of her story, declaring that it’s taken a while to find her way, but she’s ready to succeed. She recalls lessons learned from success and loss of material things, each song an acknowledgement of the past and a look forward with expectancy to the opportunities ahead.
With her new video for album track, “Smiling,” Wray shows off a day in the life of her now-home base of Atlanta as she soaks in the little things about the city that help her keep her head up. From a trip to the hair salon to a trip down memory lane with polaroids of Missy, Lady Wray’s latest installment is exploding with positivity. Let “Smiling” make your day:
