And just like that, Raye marks her place as the first female artist to have Stormzy as a feature on her own track… Premiered by MistaJam in the UK on Monday night, the track is available to download now on iTunes – or you can just keep listening to it here. Stormzy is without a doubt one of the most influential and important music artists in the UK right now, and his endorsement of Raye is something very special.
The track, titled ‘Ambition’ is something perfectly befitting of both artists. Stormzy, who is still unsigned, making his own waves and playing by his own rules. And Raye, who at just 18, has written with everyone from Charli XCX, Emeli Sande, Labrinth, Illangelo and Alex Da Kid. If you know Raye from ACCESS FASHION, you’ll also know she scored her first Top 5 with a Blonde co-write for ‘All Cried Out’ in 2015, before even entering in to adulthood.
This week sees Raye back supporting Raleigh Ritchie in Bristol, Manchester and London. With a revamped set and new tracks, some of which from her upcoming EP ‘Back2theWinter’ – if you’ve managed to get tickets, you’ll be part of a very special moment in music. For if Raye stands for anything in the music industry right now, it’s Ambition.
