New York, NY -- Spice [@spiceofficial] has dropped “Black Hypocrisy” as a single and simultaneously unveiled the accompanying music video. The dancehall queen broke the internet earlier this week after debuting a new look featuring a skin tone several shades lighter in conjunction with the release and within twenty-four hours Spice’s song reached #1 on the reggae charts in the UK and the US.
The story trended throughout the day online and caught the attention of media outlets including TMZ, Ballers Alert, The Breakfast Club, Wendy Williams, the Shade Room, and ABC News among others. The shocking debut came as the first photo Spice has posted on Instagram since going dark on social media two weeks ago, after making a post on Instagram highlighting the new look Spice hit one million views within minutes. Since then the #BlackHypocrisy challenge has taken off and shed light on the importance of self-love and societal acceptance.
Spice is set to release her mixed tape “Captured” on November 2nd. The compilation will feature twenty songs and highlight work from over the past ten years that has not been released due to legal battles with her former record label. The international recording artist is well known in the Caribbean as a singer and songwriter, and more so stateside as a regular on VH1 programming as a Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast member. The show’s notoriety has catapulted the longtime Jamaican powerhouse into the limelight as she continues to reach more global audiences.
