London’s Afropunk princess, Hey, Baby, explodes back onto the scene with the staggering video for their debut single, ‘Theatre!’. Directed by Kassandra Powell (Bimini, Girli, Tayce), with creative direction from Dale K, the ‘Theatre!’ clip erupts into an unmistakable call to arms, with Hey, Baby at the centre, owning their narrative in a delicious delirium of black, red and gold.
‘Theatre!’ is Baby claiming their space, ready for everything to come and standing tall. The powerful artwork for ‘Theatre!’ presents Baby smiling through the pain of mental health struggles in a bold and theatrical statement of defiance. Hey, Baby is an artist of deep substance, a clear and important voice forging their own path, and this is only the beginning. Speaking of the video, Hey, Baby says: “This is me owning the darker parts of myself. I wanted to lean into the messiness of what anxiety feels like and create a visual that represents the internal battles I’ve been through.”
