Legendary singer-songwriter, musician, record producer and actress Macy Gray revealed her first track and official video for Sugar Daddy, taken from her forthcoming tenth studio album titled RUBY.
The video for Sugar Daddy was directed by Christian Lamb and shot at Pour Vous in Los Angeles, the video stars Macy Gray alongside Evan Ross, and is inspired by his legendary mother Diana Ross’ portrayal of Billie Holiday in the 1972 biographical classic “Lady Sings The Blues.”
Sugar Daddy was co-written by Macy and fellow Grammy®-Award winning American singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor, alongside Bianca “Blush” Atterberry, Tommy “TB Hits” Brown and Thomas Lumpkins, and serves as the perfect taster of what’s to come from Gray's highly anticipated full-length RUBY.
RUBY serves as a welcomed reminder that one of America’s greatest female songwriters and vocalists is back and fresher than ever. The follow-up to her critically acclaimed jazz covers album Stripped which dropped in 2016, RUBY sees Macy Gray collaborate with esteemed guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. and producers Johan Carlsson (Ariana Grande, Michael Bublé, Maroon 5), Tommy Brown (Jennifer Lopez, Fifth Harmony, Travis Scott, Ariana Grande) and Tommy Parker Lumpkins (Janet Jackson, Justin Bieber, Kelly Rowland).
RUBY is out September 7.
