  • RAYE Performs “Escapism.” & Worth It.” on Saturday Night Live

  • British singer-songwriter RAYE appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform “Escapism.” and “Worth It.” on April 6, 2024.


    This marks her debut on Saturday Night Live as a musical guest.
    Both songs are featured on her debut album “My 21st Century Blues”, which was released in February 2023.
    The album reached No. 2 on the UK Albums chart.
    On the album, “Escapism.” featured American rapper 070 Shake, and was written by Rachel Keen and producer Mike Sabath.
    This time, she performed the song as solo.

    RAYE told Apple Music about the song, “I think when I was on my way out of the darker chapters in my life, I needed this song. It gives me hope. Mike played me this beat in the car, and I was rapping all this aggressive stuff. I knew exactly what story I wanted to tell on this. When we got to Utah, I went into the toilet and said a little prayer: 'Dear God, help me find the best lyrics for the song.' Then I got on the mic, and it came together so quickly—maybe in an hour and a half. I'm still processing the success of this song because I just did not expect it at all. I'm not doing this to gun for mainstream success. I'm not doing this to have the biggest chart records. These songs aren't about that.”
  • “Worth It.” was released as the sixth single from the album last November.
    This time, the song was performed in a jazz style arrangement.
    It was written by Rachel Keen, Akil King, Mike Sabath, and John Hill. Produced by Rachel Keen and Mike Sabath.

    She said of the song, “I wanted to release this a long time ago. Sometimes there are moments where it's like, 'Here comes someone—let's make all of the shit things feel really cool. And all this work that I'm supposed to be doing on myself, I might pause for a section and start putting some work into this other thing because it feels really nice.' I wanted to have this near the end of the album—a warm hug as you are leaving some of those darker earlier things. The irony is in putting it just before 'Buss It Down.' because it didn't fucking work out!”
