Alright, listen up, Australia! RAYE has dropped some mind-blowing news that’s about to set your world on fire.
RAYE, the sensational powerhouse who’s been setting stages ablaze alongside Lewis Capaldi, Kali Uchis, and SZA, is about to bring her electrifying debut headline performance to our beautiful shores in February 2024. Can you believe it? Hell yeah.
This is no ordinary tour, friends. RAYE’s grand world tour will span the UK, Europe, the USA, and of course, Australia. Prepare yourselves for a showstopping spectacle of talent that will leave you breathless and begging for more.
The artist pre-sale kicks off on Wednesday, June 7 at 10 AM local time, followed by the general public on-sale starting Friday, June 9 at 10 AM local time. This is your golden ticket to paradise, friends. Don’t let it slip through your fingers. Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Oh, and let’s talk about the icing on the cake. RAYE has just dropped the music video for her latest single, ‘Flip A Switch,’ and it’s an absolute stunner. Teaming up with the trailblazing rapper Coi Leray, they’ve created an adrenaline-fueled performance that will have you on the edge of your seat. Directed by the incredibly talented Otis Dominique, this visual masterpiece is pure fire, my friends.
Now, let’s take a moment to appreciate RAYE’s groundbreaking debut album, ‘My 21st Century Blues.’ This labor of love took a whole decade to create, and let me tell you, it’s a game-changer. RAYE fearlessly tackles topics like women’s industry challenges in anthems like ‘Hard Out Here’ and confronts misogyny head-on with ‘Black Mascara.’ She’s not afraid to use her music to spark change, and that’s what makes her a true force to be reckoned with.
The album dives deep into RAYE’s personal journey, shedding light on sensitive subjects like sexual abuse, rape, body dysmorphia, addiction, misogyny, and even climate change. One of the standout tracks, ‘Escapism (feat. 070 Shake),’ has reached incredible heights, earning certified ARIA Double Platinum status and dominating the charts. It’s a soul-stirring exploration of self-medication and heartbreak that struck a chord with millions.
And let’s not forget RAYE’s ability to effortlessly glide between genres, seamlessly blending hip-hop, dance, and gospel while maintaining her artistic integrity. This woman is a true pop game-changer, my friends.
