WATCH: Angel Haze – ‘Battle Cry’

Detroit-born hip-hop star ANGEL HAZE has unveiled the official video for her new single ‘Battle Cry’. The song, taken from her debut studio album Dirty Gold, also features the vocal talents of Australian singer Sia, perhaps best known for contributing vocals on David Guetta’s club anthem ‘Titanium’. Haze deliberately leaked the Dirty Gold LP back on December 18th, following  dispute with her record label, but it received its official release on December 30th.

The track, which was originally released as a single back on January 9th, draws much of its lyrical content from the sexual abuse Haze was subjected to as a child. The video also deals with this difficult period in her life, a subject she has previously confronted on stage in her rendition of Eminem’s ‘Cleanin Out My Closet’.

If you are affected by any of the themes in this video, help is available at Child Helpline International.
