She embraces being that 'weird, black girl'...

Hackney born DIY pop phenomenon Bree Runway stakes her claim with potent new single '2ON'.

Using social media to her full advantage Bree's incredible personal has brought her a cult following, one that is desperate for the release of her debut EP.

They'll have to wait a bit longer, though, with the London riser deciding to tease fans with a brand new single.

It's a potent offering, with '2ON' finding Bree Runway embracing her identity as that "weird, black girl" by poking fun at society's preconceptions.

The video is a hilarious but on-point look at colourism, while the lyrics bite back against the haters, while flashing a grin to her fans.

She says: “every day we are told that we could be better, prettier, brighter – as if there’s something wrong with us in the first place? When I was younger, I couldn’t hack the amount of shade thrown at my skin tone from the playgrounds, to the boys at the bus stops after school that were equally as black to every TV show, every music video, every movie that insinuated MY black was not beautiful!”

“I’ve learnt to embrace every single quirk of mine, I’ve accepted I’m unique, I am a flamingo in a world full of pigeons, I’ve always been the 'weird, black girl' I’m not scared to embrace this anymore! Who said I should turn the fuck down? Who said I ain’t this bitch when the lights go out? We ain’t dimming down our greatness for nobody...”
