In The last year alone, the songs she’s written have streamed over 1.5 billion times. Today, as an artist in her own right, RuthAnne releases the music video for her soulful RnB single ‘Liquid’, which was released in August via independent record label The Other Songs.
Speaking about the video RuthAnne Said “The video for liquid follows a young everyday girl who uploads her own cover of ‘liquid’ online and receives negative backlash, mirroring a lot of the trolling we have all experienced in real life and on social media. We see her go from being a carefree happy young girl, to seeing the horrible effects the negative comments have on her and her day. Depression and anxiety, especially in young people is becoming such an epidemic in society these days. I wanted to be a part of the conversation and hopefully this video will show people how powerful words can be and how we should all be more responsible with them…there’s no need for such hate and negativity and this video tackles anti-bullying and just how you can make someone’s day just by being positive and encouraging”.
Following debut singles ‘The Vow’ and ‘Take My Place’, RuthAnne raises the bar and moves into Hip Hop / Soul with this social-media-bashing-banger, ‘Liquid’. ‘Liquid’ draws us in from the offset, with its melodic guitar riffs and deep rhythmical drum beats, while RuthAnne’s powerful, yet soulful vocal delivers poignant relatable lyrics, that get under your skin and stay there.
Produced by MJ&iRoK (Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube) & Cadenza (Jorja Smith, M.I.A, Rag n Bone Man), RuthAnne wanted to release something closer to the artists she was inspired by, which include soulful RnB and hip-hop artists Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse. You can hear these influences in the production and the vocals but lyrically, ‘Liquid’ holds a very strong modern message.
In May 2018, she received two BMI awards for penning ‘Slow Hands’ for Niall Horan and ‘In The Name Of Love’ for Martin Garrix. She’s also written a string of hits including ‘Too Little Too Late’ for JoJo and Britney Spears’ RIAA platinum-certified ‘Work Bitch’ as well as featuring on the ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ soundtrack with her song ‘Pray’.
Last month RuthAnne supported Alanis Morrissette on her UK and Irish tour, as well as recently supported Third Story and X Ambassadors on tour, she also joined Niall Horan to sing on his ‘Flicker World Tour’.
‘Liquid’ is the 3rd track, taken from her forthcoming album, which is due for release in 2019.
