RAYE Drops New Live Video for “Escapism”
British singer-songwriter Rachel Keen, aka RAYE has dropped a new live video for “Escapism” directed by Dan Massie.
She filmed the vide at Metropolis Studios in London.
The song was released as the third single from her upcoming debut album “My 21st Century Blues”, which is set to be released on February 3, 2023.
She teamed up with American rapper 070 Shake on the track. But on the live video, she performed the song as solo.
It was written by Rachel Keen, Mike Sabath, and Danielle Balbuena. Produced by Mike Sabath.
The song is her first UK Top 10 single as an independent artist. The single is currently sitting at No. 2 on the UK Singles chart.
RAYE told the Official Charts Company, “I'm just so grateful that I'm in a position where I can release the music that I love and that I'm proud of. It's just the biggest surprise and blessing. It's a mind-blowing moment that's happening right now, it's absolutely bonkers. It's nuts, it's very cool.”
- She continued, “I'm still pinching myself, I haven't taken this in at all. I'm independent, you just have to keep working hard. I'm like 'wait, I'm independent and I'm having commercial success?' I'm still processing it. I had no expectations, chart positioning-wise, in this new chapter. This is the most ridiculous bonus anyone could ask for.”
She added, “The fact it’s been 10 years since I dropped my first song, and I now have my first Top 10 record as a solo artist. It takes time, it takes persistence and there’s no predicting what can happen.”
