JGrrey ft Kojey Radical 'May' by Pip + Lib

Rob Ulitski - 14th Mar 2023

Pip + Lib direct a heartwrenching promo for JGrrey, featuring Kojey Radical.

The track is a tribute to the artist's best friend James, who sadly lost his battle with depression, and marks the first collaboration between JGrrey and Kojey Radical, having known each other for a decade. 

The video for May depicts a support group which descends into chaos and violence, via an outpour of complex emotions and the fear of being truthful with oneself.

"From the moment we received our first voicenote from Jen [JGrrey], we knew this was gonna be a special project," say Pip + Lib. "We then met up around Jen's kitchen table, and between us sort of birthed this safe space for ideas, thoughts and creativity.

"Jen handed their vision over to us, and we cradled it from their brain and out into the world. Trust is one thing all directors, creatives, and basically everyone wants when working on something, and we were so thankful to have that in mountain loads.

"The respect for our ideas and new paths was rare and beautiful. On the shoot day, a community of queer creatives came together, to create for a queer artist. A bliss, sacred space. In so many words. It was special. And we hope for it to be the beginning of something more!"
