Relatively speaking Raye has only been around for a quite a short time but she has already made a serious impact. Her previous single Distraction was released at the start of this month to great reviews across the board, including some very excited words from yours truly.
I loved the track and thought that the 18 year old South London based singer had a hell of a future, and all that the arrival of this new tune, Ambition has done is back up those words. Both of the tracks come from Raye’s upcoming EP Back 2 The Winter which is shaping up to be one of the top releases of 2016.
For Ambition Raye even manages to hook up a feature with one of the hottest MC’S in the UK right now in form of Stormzy. Seriously if that dude is going out of the way to collaborate on a tune with you with the run that he’s having, you’d better start believing the hype. I’ll hand it over to Raye to explain how the collab came about;
“I was at his show in Stockholm. I went back-stage and he said to me, ‘somebody I really trust told me that you are an alien and you’re the future.” “I was like, wow, I’ve got this track, will you guest on it? He went away and a few hours later he’d nailed it.”
Once again I absolutely love this track. The guest verse complements the rest of the song incredibly well and for her part Raye delivers in impressively stylish fashion once more.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, get acquainted with this girl, she has a massive future. Big things are most definitely coming.
