Manga Saint Hilaire – My One/God Save The Queens

Riding high off the critically acclaimed Outbursts From The Outskirts, Manga drops the visuals for the female empowering My One/God Save The Queens

The success of his project was not just based on sound and style, but concept too, delivering a dominant Grime project that showcased the evolution, not short of substance, and this record is an example of just that. Paying homage to the queens, it’s very rare to get such a song, especially on such a tempo, it’s not exactly what comes to mind when you think Grime (but that’s why he deserves the praise), far removed from the derogatory stances we’ve been accustomed to, it’s a more positive and praising outlook. Acknowledging the strength and inner beauty of the woman, and crowning them as such. The video is a cool representation of just that, down to the inclusion of snapchats of a variety of ages, ethnicities, shapes and sizes, especially with Goldie’s hilarious (but true) outro, you’re all queens!
