Raye Reveals She Desperately Wants A Collaboration With Alicia Keys

Just recently, Raye talked about how much she wants to collaborate on a song or an album with Alicia Keys.

The 25-year-old hitmaker recently spoke out about how the album ‘The Diary of Alicia Keys’ was the very first record that she purchased with money that she saved up. She also talked about how she has always dreamt of getting the opportunity to sit down and create music or a hit song with the Grammy-winning popstar. 

Raye told Rebecca Judd during her appearance on Apple Music, that she especially combed through every single one of Alicia Keys's songs from the album and memorized every single lyric. In her words, she was in awe of the singer’s ability to create songs from scratch and make them into poetry that moved anyone who heard them. 

The 25-year-old talked about how she would just love to sit down at a piano alongside Alicia and pen one of her best songs. The Escapism singer further talked about how keen she is to work with the popular rapper, Doja Cat. According to her, Raye greatly admired the carefree approach of the hitmaker. 

The popstar went on to add how skilled Doja Cat is at styling herself and makes sure to not give a care about anything. She further gushed about the rapper’s content on TikTok.

In Raye’s words, she is especially inspired by Doja Cat’s ability to not care about what people think, since she wants to be the same way. From delivery and vocals to syncopation to dance, the 25-year-old admired everything about the renowned rapper. 

She also hinted at wanting to do a collaboration with Doja Cat, since she is inspiring and brilliant at everything that she does. 

Raye has now turned to become a solo artist, which was a career path she decided to take when she parted ways with Polydor, a popular record label, in 2021. In her words, she wants to have complete control over the kind of music she makes and releases and thus wants to be an independent creator.

She added that she has made an oath to herself to never try to act the way a major label wants her to. The 25-year-old stated that she is tired of being told what to do and when to post, so she will do so as she pleases and exercise her freedom. 

Talking about wanting to go viral, Raye said that no one can make people like something on their own. So, she is not aiming to make that happen. Rather, she is going to focus on her music and let things happen in a natural manner. 

In other news, Icona Pop has revealed that they will be releasing their first new album in a decade. This was brought about by the boredom the band members faced during the coronavirus lockdown. 

Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt recently dropped a new song, I Want You, back in the month of February and said that they are preparing to climb back onto the charts. This is the band’s first album since 2013 since the pandemic has stirred their inner creativity.
