RAYE, an 18-year-old South Londoner who’s current CV includes two stellar EPs, a monstrous single in the shape of I, U, Us (co-written with Charli XCX), a writing credit on a future banger (Charli XCX’s own After The Afterparty), a collaboration with Nas on the soundtrack to The Birth Of A Nation, features on huge tunes by the likes of Jonas Blue and Jax Jones, and a rib-rattling collaboration with UK rap ballbuster Stefflon Don on an off-the-cuff cover of Desiigner’s Timmy Turner (RAYE also co-directed and edited the video). All this from someone who knows she has several absolute smashes up her immaculately designed sleeves (she’s also got her own fashion label, don’t you know) and is supporting Jess Glynne on her upcoming arena tour. “It sounds stupid but I want to be as big as I can be,” she states. “I want to be massive. I’m 18 and I’m just starting so let’s go.”

The steady shift in sound and a move towards something a bit more pop is all part of her masterplan. “I want to be a massive pop artist and I’ve always wanted to start in the right place so that’s with the music I love. I’ve always wanted to do it in my own way, on my own terms.”
