RAYE - My 21st Century Blues + General Discussion


Staff member

Oh I love this. It feels more true to her while still retaining the fantastic production and melodies that runs through all of her work. It’s definitely feels more like a statement of intent rather than a big ‘comeback’ but it’s done its job in making me even more excited for what’s to come.
I really like this! I accidentally played the censored version first and thought some of the production was odd but the explicit version is much better. I could actually see this becoming one of my favourites from her.
This is incredible. I love the neo-soul influences, hip-hop soul vibes, and absolute grit this song possesses. For it to clock in under 3:15, it manages to be adventurous with its production. More importantly, it compels me to realize that hell hath no fury like a RAYE scorned.

It would also make an excellent sister song to "Woke Up Blessed" by Tinashe.
