What’s On… Ray BLK x Champion

Artist, actor and UD Ambassador, Ray BLK has dropped the empowering, ‘My Girl’ – the lead single lifted from the soundtrack for Candice Carty-Williams’ new BBC Series, Champion

Produced by Nana Rogues, Ray explores the power of friendship and sisterhood – pulling on the themes that run throughout Champion.

The new eight-part drama marks the first TV project from bestselling author Candice Carty-Williams and follows siblings Vita and Bosco Champion as they face a rivalry with one another that spans their professional and personal lives.

The synopsis reads: “Rap sensation Bosco Champion is home from prison, and ready to dominate the music industry once more. But when his dutiful younger sister Vita’s own talent is discovered by Bosco’s rival, she steps out of her brother’s shadow to become a performer in her own right, setting the Champion siblings against one another and tearing apart the whole family in the process.”

Champion is available to watch on BBC iPlayer now.
