Australian vocal powerhouse, Grace, has announced the premiere of the music video for “You Don’t Own Me” Ft. G-Eazy, the debut single off her recently release EP, Memo. The video premiered exclusively via VEVO TODAY. It was directed by Taylor Cohen (Nicki Minaj, Little Dragon) at Westlake Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
The track, a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 anthem “You Don’t Own Me,” is Grace’s first single off of her EP, and features new verses rapped by G-Eazy and was produced by its original producer, the legendary Quincy Jones and also Parker Ighile (Nicki Minaj). The track just crossed over 4 million streams online and is currently #1 on the charts in Australia
Grace released her debut EP, Memo – May 26th via Regime Music Societe/RCA. The EP is filled with original songs that highlight her influences, which range from Gladys Knight to Amy Winehouse. Grace co-wrote all of the EP’s five songs, including the title track song when she was only 16 and recording it on her iPhone.
Eighteen-year-old GRACE, is one of the hottest pop-soul prospects this year. Hailing from Brisbane, Australia with UK roots, GRACE grew up where the sounds of Smokey Robinson to Janis Joplin, and Shirley Bassey to Amy Winehouse, filled her home and fueled her soul. With a strong musical heritage (her grandparents toured with the Gibb brothers), GRACE has developed a raw, throaty, soulful sound whose emotional timbre belies her tender years. It’s easy to understand how that style was developed when she name-checks her biggest influences as Shirley Bassey, Minnie Riperton, Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin and Michael Jackson just to name a few.
