RAYE - Hard Out Here + General Discussion

  1. I wasn't feeling it from the snipped to be honest as I found her vocals a bit too tamed (which I was a bit disappointed as I'm a big fan of both her and Disclosure), but the full song is a slap and a half.

  2. Waterfall is insanely good, I've been shuffling and getting my life. This deserves to be their first hit since... Magnets? Song of the summer contender.

  7. If she's independent it probably takes a lot longer to finance, record, mix and master etc. I'm sure she's cooking up an album to feed us good.

  8. I can't believe that Waterfall didn't / hasn't smashed. It's an 11/10 and deserves to be massive!

  9. I think I can hear it gushing.
  10. It was just a comment for the 'leave X label queen go indie!' gays who think going indie means more content when in reality it's the same thing more or less. I'm sure the reasons for her stint with Polydor stalling were financial too, ie her songs' success / profit didn't warrant a successful album yet and she was told to wait.

  11. @Island this is from 2021, so it's from when she was with Polydor

  12. I think it was a mistake.

    Even if she hadn't released an album by now, probably she would have released a couple of songs or an EP.
  13. I too think she should've stuck it out for one more year but also she knows best for herself so... yeah. She's so talented, an amazing voice and THE ear for pop / bop.

  14. Recent festival performance of an unreleased song that’s allegedly from last year’s Polydor album.

    Maybe an indication that tracks like Fantastic and Born Again that she’s teased will see the light of day too?

  15. New single Hard Out Here, 30th June. Potential album name The Blues Ain’t Dead? that title doesn’t give me hope for Fantastic :(
