New Single from Blee Calls for Love and Unity Despite Struggles

Date: Feb 22, 2015

Posted by:


London based artist, Blee, has released a new single called Life. The new single paints a vivid picture of the struggles of the black race while simultaneously calling for love, unity and
forgiveness to move forward.

It's no secret that being black has a number of challenges. Results from a survey conducted by the Office of National Statistics show that more than half of young black males in Britain are unemployed. In another report, The Bureau of Statistics shows that 1 in 3 black men go to prison and blacks are twice more likely to be arrested and experience the use of force during encounters with the police.

The lyrics in "Life" are thought provoking and accompanied by smooth rhythms that will have listeners rocking to the beats. The chorus is, especially, catchy and will inspire listeners to embrace their "blackness" regardless of the oppression they face.

When asked what inspired him to pen and perform "Life", Blee said: "For me this song is all about an internal battle between a longing for justice and a longing for progress. Although it may be true that life in this world is harder for black people, if we want progress, real progress, it can't be about race. If it's love then there's no room for separation."

Life is available for download at

and is also available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. For further information,
