“Righteous” – which was just premiered via Red Bull Music – is the brand new single from emerging British R&B songstress Robyn Paige, and the latest offering, taken from her forthcoming debut EP which is scheduled for release early next year. It comes on the back of her summer anthem ‘Say You Will’ which was supported by the likes of The 405, FAME Magazine, Pardon My Blog, Reprezent Radio and Certified UK, among others.
Produced by Sampl (Skepta, Scorcher, Ms Banks), whom she collaborated with previously on ‘Say You Will’, and co-written by Paige, Johnson Orchid and Corazon Baguma, ‘Righteous’ is a sultry piano-led ballad backed by sparse drum and string arrangements, over which Paige sings emotively about being torn between right and wrong, and her inability to resist someone that isn’t righteous for her.
The visuals for ‘Righteous’, which were shot and directed by Olan Collardy (Angel, River Island, Nick Brewer), brings the record further to life, as we witness Robyn Paige playing the other woman in a romantic love triangle. Speaking about the visuals, she says, “I was nervous to play ‘the other woman’ in the video but I feel that the concept really portrayed the lyrics perfectly to grasp the meaning of the song”.
As for the record itself, Paige says ‘Righteous’ is about, “being in a situation you know shouldn’t be in. It’s about how you feel in that moment when you are torn between the right and the wrong thing to do, but are unable to resist the wrong thing”.
