Bio

My name is Sonia Grace. I’m a singer/rapper and songwriter based in Los Angeles, CA. My new single “Regular Black” was inspired by my experience as an African immigrant in the US. I get a lot questions/comments regarding my identity and ethnicity which are mostly centered on stereotypes. On more than one occasion I’ve been told, “I know you’re black, but not like regular black. Where are you from?” So I embarked on a journey to find out what exactly is “Regular Black” and if such a thing actually exists. “Regular Black” is unapologetic, funny, opinionated and truthful. It’s a blend of hip hop and pop, accurately referred to Hip-Pop which is both rapping and singing. I included African click sounds to add some humor and hopefully inspire listeners to start conversations about stereotypes.

The video for “Regular Black” was an exciting learning opportunity. I used different paint colors and wardrobe changes to show how different stereotypes are perpetuated, colorism, and how the whole notion of who does or doesn’t fit “Regular Black” is ridiculous.
