Blah Blah EP is the second EP from UK hip hop artist Lady Sovereign. [2] It was only released in the UK.


The lead track from the EP was "Blah Blah". The song had a music video, which was included on the DVD, however, unlike "Random" being the lead single from Vertically Challenged , "Blah Blah" was never released as a single in its own right. It was originally due to be the follow-up to "Random" but "9 to 5" was chosen instead.

The EP also came with a bonus DVD and is individually numbered authenticating its limited printing.


The bassline of the title track is sampled from Damian Marley's "All Night." [3]
