The unstoppable RAYE returns with new single ‘Please Don’t Touch’, released today.
‘Please Don’t Touch’ is a wistful and elegant electro pop song about trust and honesty, that RAYE wrote with hitmaker Kamille (Little Mix, Jax Jones, Clean Bandit) and legendary producer Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Stormzy, Dave).
RAYE has amassed over 1 billion streams of her music and 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.
She also co-wrote Beyonce’s last single ‘Bigger’, the opening track from the new Lion King inspired album.
The most tipped artist of the 2017 Tips, including No.3 in the BBC Sound of 2017, RAYE 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.
In 2018 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.
The new face of fashion retailer Flannels, RAYE has performed sold out shows at KOKO, Village Underground and Heaven, and recently supported Khalid on his upcoming UK and Europe tour. She has previously supported both Rita Ora and Halsey.
