‘Cigarette’ arrives straight off the back of three UK Top 15 singles (‘Decline’ by RAYE, ‘Finders Keepers’ by Mabel and ‘Hurtin’ Me’ by Stefflon Don). Curated by RAYE, the track sets the tone for the year ahead.
‘Cigarette’ is taken from an upcoming wider project set to drop in the coming months. RAYE has curated a culturally relevant collection of music featuring a number of collaborations with her artist friends. This body of work is set to solidify RAYE’s status amongst her fellow pioneers of UK music.
‘Cigarette’ follows RAYE’s UK Silver certified single ‘Decline’ which is still on the Capital playlist and remained on the Radio 1 A List for a massive 8 weeks.
RAYE is one of the UK’s hottest new stars, spending most of 2017 performing at major festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude and V Festival. She has already racked up nearly 75 million streams of her music, and has established herself as one of the UK’s ‘go to’ hit songwriters, working with the likes of John Legend, Charli XCX, Nas, Little Mix, Snakehips, Julia Michaels, Blood Pop, Ellie Goulding, Diplo and Naughty Boy.
