You know we love Raye. And we’re completely in love with her latest track ‘Distraction’. The track, Raye tells explains is “…just a pretty simple story of me trying to distract myself from some idiot! By verse 3 in the song I’ve managed to empower myself enough to cut him out and ignore his calls.” – Yes, it’s that straightforward. And we all know what she’s talking about right. We’ve all been there.

Raye’s been in the studio writing with everyone from Labrinth, Stormzy, Emeli Sande, Charli XCX, Illangelo, Wretch 32, Jimmy Napes, Two Inch Punch, MNEK and Alex Da Kid. And let’s not forget she’s already scored her first Top 5 with her co-write for Blonde’s ‘All Cried Out’.

‘Distraction’ is taken from her upcoming EP, ‘Back 2 The Winter’ which is out ‘soon’. And we can’t wait. There is no doubt, at just 18 years old, Raye is one of the best and freshest and dopest sounds in British music right now.
