Dall’8 marzo disponibile su Radio Kiss Kiss “Worth it

Il 2 marzo, a Londra, è stata la serata di Raye: ha fatto storia ai Brit Awards, vincendo sei dei sette premi per cui era stata nominata, superando il record di quattro vittorie in una singola cerimonia di Blur, Adele e Harry Styles.
Non solo, è anche la prima donna a vincere il premio “Songwriter of the year“.

Già dallo scorso gennaio Raye aveva infranto il record per il maggior numero di nomination ottenute da un singolo artista in un anno, avendo ottenuto sette nomination.
La cerimonia dei Brit Awards è stata inequivocabilmente la serata di questa ventiseienne laureata alla BRIT School del sud di Londra. Dopo essere stata annunciata vincitrice del premioSongwriter of the year” Raye ha poi vinto altri cinque premi portando il suo totale a sei.
Le sue vittorie per “Mastercard Album of the Year”, “Best New Artist”, “Artist of the Year”, “Song of the Year with Mastercard” – con Escapism – e “R&B Act”  mettono Raye al vertice della classifica dei BRITs per il maggior numero di vittorie in una sola notte, superando il precedente record di quattro, detenuto da Harry Styles (2023), Adele (2016) e Blur (1995).

Raye si è inoltre esibita in un trionfante medley – con ‘Ice Cream Man’, ‘Prada’ & ‘Escapism’ –  visibile a questo link: youtu.be/OiKbKRcsBCw?si=f1OwkIFjJzoQTqcK

Raye, visibilmente emozionata, ha così commentato: “The artist I was three years ago would not believe I’m in control – I’m my own boss.”

Dall’8 marzo disponbile in tutte le radio il singolo “Worth It“.


Tra i talenti musicali più straordinari e influenti del Regno Unito Rayecon oltre 3 miliardi di streaming complessivi, più di  411 milioni di visualizzazioni su YouTube e superando i 34 milioni di ascoltatori mensili su Spotify, prima di raggiungere questi numeri da capogiro, era conosciuta come autrice di brani incisi da star come Charli XCX, Rita Ora, Jax Jones, le Little Mix, John Legend, Ellie Goulding, David Guetta e Beyoncé, diventando così in breve tempo una delle penne più ricercate dalle star mondiali.

Sotto contratto con la casa discografica di allora, la Polydor, nel 2021 decide di affidare ai social, più precisamente attraverso un tweet, la sua sofferenza e il suo disagio verso l’industria musicale dichiarando“I have been on a 4 ALBUM RECORD DEAL since 2014 !!! And haven’t been allowed to put out one album. ALL I CARE ABOUT is the music. Im sick of being slept on and I’m sick of being in pain about it this is not business to me this so personal”.

Solo due anni dopo la condivisione di quel tweet Raye si è trovata in cima alle classifiche mondiali con numeri sbalorditivi: “My 21st Century Blues” ha totalizzato oltre 1,18 miliardi di streaming e la hit “Escapism” (feat. 070 Shake), nominata ai Brit, è diventato DISCO DI PLATINO in oltre dodici Paesi tra cui Regno Unito, America, Australia, Svezia e Nuova Zelanda, è stato CERTIFICATO ORO in Italia, Francia e Germania, è stato Top 5 in tutta Europa ed è entrato nella classifica Billboard Hot 100 degli Stati Uniti.

I 13 brani – in equilibrio tra house, pop, blues e dancehall – che compongono “My 21st Century Blues” sono un vero e proprio atto trionfante di indipendenza e ci raccontano in maniera straordinaria una parte della sua vita: dagli abusi sessuali, alla dismorfofobia corporea, dal tema delle dipendenze fino alle sue tormentate esperienze nell’industria musicale.
“Creating this music empowered me to face my demons. I called a lot of these people up and was like ‘you did this, and you did that – remember this? You owe me an apology and you’re never going to be able to treat another woman like that again’. On the album I’m not going to be naming names, but I will be telling these stories. I will be explicitly fucking saying it.” 

WORTH IT – TESTO

Oh, no, no, no
No, no, no

Ooh, oh, no, no, no
My love, you’re gonna make it all

If my body was a boat, could you steer that, sailor? (Mmm)
Make it feel like it’s a 1960s Hollywood trailer (old-school, I like)
Classic like cars, classic like Elizabeth Taylor (Taylor, Taylor)
Uh, need you to romance me, yeah, I need a giver, not a taker
Ooh, it’s what I need

Yes, ‘cause I could love you if I really wanted to
You could be, be my glass of wine
When the sun sets, help me exhale
All the excess

Would you make it alright?
Or maybe that much better?
If you wanted you could make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it
Ooh, when I see the sun rising
You make it that much better
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it

Ooh, worth all of the time I’m ‘bout to give you, baby
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it
Ooh, give all of the time I should be be working on me
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it

Mmm, this is the night (something ‘bout it’s making me cry)
My soul, it did decide (feel my body shiver in your moonlight)
And I need you to (let me have the time of my life)
Checked your credentials
South residentials
Ooh, baby boy, you got so much potential

I could love you if I really wanted to
You could be, be my glass of wine
When the sun sets, help me exhale
All the excess

Baby, bae, b-b-bae, b-b-baby, would you (baby, would you)
Would you make it alright? (Would you make it alright?)
Or maybe that much better? (Or maybe that much better)
If you wanted you could make it all

Ooh, when I see the sun rising
You make it that much better
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it

Ooh, worth all of the time I’m ‘bout to give you, baby

Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it
Ooh, give all of the time I should be be working on me
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it

Drip me out in six-carat Cartier rings, baby
(Babe) top floor in the penthouse, sipping on Chardonnay 2016, baby
(On the top floor) something like a dream, babe
Somehow I’m so captured by you
I’m rearranging all of my plans
And I’m holding my breath
As I hope you make it worth it

Would you make it alright
Or maybe that much better?
If you wanted you could make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it
Ooh, when I see the sun rising
You make it that much better
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it

Ooh, worth all the time I’m ‘bout to give you, baby
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
Worth it, worth it, worth it, worth it
Ooh, give all of the time I should be be working on me
So I hope you’re gonna make it all
(Worth it, worth it, worth it)

This is the night (this is the night)
My soul, it did decide
And I need you to (I need you to)
I’m all in, I can’t reverse it
So I hope and pray you make it
(All worth it) ah, ah, ooh, yeah
