Tom Green has created a thought-provoking and suitably moving video to accompany Ray Blk's heartfelt Run Run.

This brings us into the world of a black British teenager who is almost certainly also a murder victim. But in a place somewhere between reality and a dystopian purgatory, his fear and need to escape continues.

The metaphorical journey of the boy, powerfully played by Kai Francis Lewis, is intercut with Ray's performance on the terrace of a London estate. "It was very emotional being on set to shoot the Run Run video," she says. "Tears were shed.

"There’s a scene where I am up on the roof of an estate in Brixton and I was looking down at these surroundings, thinking about what was probably going on in the estate. It was very real. Everyone walked away that day after filming feeling heavy."
