We weren’t together in the studio, so it was very exciting to see how far a collaboration could take this record once I sent my part. This one was really special to me. That’s everything I love about underground dance music, confident and sexy. »

In collaboration with British sculptor Jam Sutton, an artist who explores the relationship between technology and antiquity, sculptural 3D digital renderings of Honey have been the artwork for all previous singles leading up to Black Girl Magic. Exploring identity, form, technology and classic portraiture, the album artwork is the latest piece in Honey’s series of bespoke exhibits.
Jam Sutton, creator of the visual identity for Honey’s second album, added:
“It was such a pleasure to collaborate with Honey on a series of sculptures. Honey visited my studio where we spent an entire day discussing life and creativity. During this time, I made a series of shape studies using a 3D scanner. For two years, Honey and I worked together to create this body of work. I am interested in the moment of transformation of human form into digital form, from physical to virtual. There’s something fascinating about capturing a portrait of my subject as three-dimensional data, which I then refine to create sculptural pieces. I try to record not only the shape and contours of the flesh, but also the essence of being; I depict human physicality suspended in digital space. »
