Raye – “Genesis”

The talented English pop star, Raye, has had a remarkable year. She set a record for the most BRIT award nominations and wins in a single year and made her debut on SNL. She collaborated on Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter and now she is releasing the track “Genesis,” produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins.

In a statement, Raye explained, “There is a Nina Simone quote, ‘It is an artist’s duty to reflect the times.’ This quote is everything to me and I believe the best way I can try to do this is through my art and my music.” Speaking about her new release:

There is so much darkness and pain in this world we live in, and I wanted to create something both deeply personal and raw about my own mind and the world I see around me. The song is a 7-minute piece that I have carefully crafted over the last year and a half, experimenting with different genres and sonic expressions. Beneath all the layers and the lyrics, the underlying message is ‘Let There Be Light.’ It is a prayer, a plea, and a cry for help. I truly hope this song will bring hope, the way music does for me, to those who need it most.
