“I am so happy to share this album with my fans, it tells the full story of my journey. Where I come from, what I’ve been through, the Ls and the wins, my feelings, and a lot more,” Ramengvrl said in a press release.
“I hope this album can also be something you guys hold on to, I believe everyone can relate to the stories I tell in this body of work.”
Earlier this week, Ramengvrl released a moving video for the poignant track ‘The Emo Song’. The video featured various people who shared and wrote down their insecurities and harsh comments they’ve received from others.
‘Can’t Speak English’ features contributions with notable producers such as Roark Bailey, Omega, Swede of 808 Mafia and Cassius Jay. The album was released under EMPIRE, which has represented the likes of Snoop Dogg, Migos and Anderson .Paak.
In a recent interview with NME, Ramengvrl spoke about her relationship with the US label: “Seeing EMPIRE’s track record and their no master ownership principle, seeing some of my fave artists signed to them and having met Ghazi [Shami, CEO/founder] himself made me sure that EMPIRE is the way to go for this album.”
