Queer Music: Miloh Ramai casts a spell with new single ‘Black Magic’


Pretoria artist Miloh Ramai is back with a spellbinding new single called Black Magic.

Award-winning South African singer and songwriter Miloh Ramai is ready to captivate audiences with his latest dark pop dance masterpiece, Black Magic.

The single, released on 28 July, takes listeners on a mesmerising journey with its haunting lyrics and enthralling melodies.

The spellbinding track, Black Magic, penned by the Pretoria-based Ramai himself, is brought to life by his longtime collaborator, producer Sloani.

Together, they have created previous hits like ALPHA (2022), Wasting Time (2022), Forever And A Day (2022), and Run (2019).

With Black Magic, Ramai weaves a captivating tale of falling under the enchantment of an irresistible force. The poignant lyrics tell the story of being entangled in the currents of a binding sorcery, lost and intoxicated in a consuming relationship.

The protagonist is pulled deeper into the allure of the mysterious other, ultimately surrendering to their seductive charms.

The accompanying moody music video, directed by Jo Grenfell, further enhances the Black Magic experience (watch it below). In it Ramai floats in an ominous dark pool and wanders the ruins of an abandoned building as he sings:

“Wasted in your ocean, going deeper every day, and more than what I give is less the price I have to pay, because the spells you cast from your black heart keep setting you apart.” 

Ramai turned to music as a teenager as a way to express his angst from not fitting in at school and went on to write his first song at the age of 15.

Now, with a rapidly growing fanbase and a repertoire of captivating releases, he’s firmly established himself as a force in the South African music industry with his unique voice and genre-blending music.

Get ready to be spellbound by the bewitching melodies of Black Magic as Miloh Ramai once again showcases his artistry and creativity. It’s available on all major music platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, and YouTube Music.
