An individualistic style, incredible talent, a unique vocal range, but also a challenging life story defines the success of one of today's most streamed singers. Raye scooped a record-breaking 6 Brit Awards this year, securing her place in British music history and adding to her collection of accolades. In the UK alone, she boasts a double platinum, five platinum, four gold, and four silver singles, including several international awards. However, her path to success was far from easy.

Raye has been navigating the music industry since her teenage years. She wrote songs for big names like Beyoncé, Little Mix, and Charli XCX. She produced records for Rihanna and John Legend. She collaborated with Stormzy and David Guetta. Songs like "You Don't Know Me" and "Secrets" earned her a lot of money, but as a solo artist, she was constantly doubted. Despite signing a contract with a studio for four albums, they consistently refused to release even her debut. Eventually, she managed to break free from the contract and embarked on a journey as an independent artist, releasing her music on her own terms.

Her highly anticipated album titled 'My 21st Century Blues' is a deeply personal work consisting of 13 songs reflecting her painful experiences with the music industry, addiction, sexual violence, and body dysmorphia. Her songs quickly became synonymous with strength and inspire all those who face similar challenges in life, quickly becoming viral hits. "Escapism." for example, has amassed over 700 million cumulative views on TikTok and has 30 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
