We just cannot get this new song by Raye 6 out of our heads. While clearly pop-leaning, this new single pumps and makes you want to get up, dance and sing.

“The Raye 6 sound is futuristic, often lifting and blasting you into space.”

Raye 6 is not only defined by talent and beauty. Many have wondered and some have fantasized what a female version of Prince would be like, even Prince tried to create his female prototype but as dope as Sheena Easton was and as sexy as Vanity 6 may have been they all lived in the shadow of their creator, so I introduce to you Raye 6. While comparable to “The Artist” this woman shines in her own light. Erotic, worldly, talented singer, song-writer, producer and performer, Raye 6 has a psychedelic soulful sound accompanied by lyrics written from a woman who has lived and learned. This International Brooklyn based artist’s sound is sensual and demanding, melodic and unapologetic. Audiences let go of their inhibitions when Raye 6 comes into play. Miss 6?s brand is magnetizing, drawing listeners from all facets of life into her Universe 6.
