Nashua, NH - Ruby Shabazz releases new song “Loss” in honor of mental health awareness month on all major streaming platforms.

“Loss” is an emotional tribute about the loss of a loved one and the heartbreak, grief and mental challenges we go through in the aftermath.

“I promised myself I would get deeper and more vulnerable with my songwriting. Now I’m making music that is open and honest with a message I believe can help people going through difficult times” says Ruby.

The track is produced by SAMerican, a musician from Paris who brings the sound of classic soul with a hip hop element.

Ruby’s unique and soulful music has been described by Wave Radio Boston’s host Joe Beauregard as “an updated version of neo-soul mixed with the throwback sounds of Lauryn Hill.”

She has also been named New Hampshire’s queen of R&B and Hip Hop by NH Magazine and strives to live up to the title with a few soulful projects in the works for 2024.

When asked how she feels when people refer to her as the Queen of NH Hip Hop and R&B, Ruby replies, “I feel honored and I feel humbled, and I would always feel like I have more work to do and more progress to make. But I can’t lie. I like that title.” – NH Magazine

The single is available on all musical platforms as of Tuesday, May 21.
