Fresh from amassing over 1 billion streams of her music and co-writing Beyonce’s new single ‘Bigger’, the opening track from the new Lion King inspired album, RAYE returns to the music scene this August with the future smash hit single ‘Love Me Again’, released today via Polydor Records.
Written by RAYE and Jin Jin, and produced by Fred Ball, ‘Love Me Again’ is a beautiful ode to winning back a lost love. With an indelible pop melody, church keys and a stunning and emotional vocal performance from RAYE, this song can’t help but leave you moved.
RAYE says: “I’m so deeply in it all, and this song is super vulnerable, but it’s really powerful in its own way. I don’t want to make plastic music. I’m trying not to listen to anything that’s on the radio right now because I don’t want to create anything that anyone else is doing.”
To date, RAYE has a double Platinum, Gold and two Silver singles under her belt. She has written songs for artists such as John Legend, Major Lazer, Charli XCX, Little Mix, Hailee Steinfeld, Quavo, Normani, Ellie Goulding, Jax Jones, Khalid, 6LACK and Jessie Reyez, and worked with the world’s biggest songwriters and producers including David Guetta, Diplo, Bloodpop, Andrew Watt, Jin Jin, Kamille, Julia Michaels, Fraser T Smith, Fred Ball and Justin Trantor.
The most tipped artist of the 2017 Tips, including No.3 in the BBC Sound of 2017, she received a BRIT Award nomination for ‘Best Single’ with Jax Jones in 2018. This was followed by a Top 15 charting single, the Gold certified ‘Decline’, a record that stayed on the Radio 1 A List for a massive 8 weeks.
Later last year she released her second EP, ‘Side Tape’, a culturally relevant collection of music featuring a number of collaborations with her artist friends, all curated by RAYE herself.
RAYE has performed sold out shows at KOKO, Village Underground and Heaven, and will support Khalid on his upcoming UK and Europe tour. She has previously supported both Rita Ora and Halsey.
