Two days ago, BET highlighted the Virginia-native singer-songwriter for its #FindingBET series. In the episode, Lady Wray explains that she was the first female singer signed to Roc-A-Fella Records before Rihanna or Teairra Marí. After two bad happenings that were out of her control, she disappeared from the spotlight. Undoubtedly, Nicole Wray didn’t get her just due as a long-lasting solo artist although she sang on hit records, had her own, and worked with Dame Dash on several occasions (See: Her song with London-based brother duo SAS—Streets All Salute—and contribution to The Black Keys’ album ‘BlakRoc’). Watch the video below to learn more about the famed singer from the early 00s.
