Inequalities. In the light of recent events, it inspires many people to speak out. From The Subways Fight! single to Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s documentary, Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power, on the BBC, it’s time to change! Through artistry and poetry, we can at least make people change their minds. That’s precisely what Pip Millett wants to show us on her new single ‘Running.’
Who’s Pip Millett? She’s one of the new faces of UK R’n’B. Hailing from the heart of North West of England, in Manchester, she’s delicate as a flower with emotional and sultry vocals. Like her musical counterparts, Celeste or Jorja Smith, Pip is not afraid to speak out through her powerful lyrics. “Black and free, I don’t think that’s a thing,” she croons in ‘Running.’ Of course, it refers to the multiple waves of abuse that happens because people are different. In the shadows of the George Floyd case and the BLM protests, it shows the world that despite the efforts, we still have to take action for a fundamental change! Some situations can be triggering, but the world will be a better place to live if we educate ourselves.
Unity For All
On ‘Running,’ Pip Millett brings in the colossal rapper Ghetts. He adds to the song some groovy touch, with visceral and reflective rap bars. It sadly defines the truth of what people, especially the black community around the world, have to endure every day. People can’t run away from these issues and we are all human at the end of the day. The message is harsh, triggering for some, but let’s give this a positive twist. Unity is the key.
Vulnerable And Honest
The song starts on lovely and beautiful choir melodies. The samples, worked by producer Joice, bring vulnerable and honest vibes to the track. Pip Millett’s solid vocals are full of sensibility.
