The emotionally raw, in-your-face anthem Hard Out Here, marked the singer-songwriter’s first solo music in over a year and her official debut as an independent artist. The following singles, included Escapism which became a world wide smash hit leading to the widespread discovery of RAYE the artist, ahead of the release of her debut album My 21st Century Blues. It's RAYE part two. RAYE on her own terms. It's the RAYE of old, but reloaded. These are songs made by RAYE, for RAYE, but within that they're for everyone who has faced and overcome adversity. They're also anthems for other women in the industry, or stuck in a cycle of misogyny.
