Croydon’s 19-year-old, excitingly talented pop songstress RAYE, returns and shines with a meaningful and yet feel good summery number, called ‘The Line’. The ode to the hassle of club queues on a night out, was co-written by Raye and produced by FRED.
“Going out clubbing gives you a cold dose of the expectation society has on women,” RAYE explained to The FADER. “To get into a club you have to kill yourself in heels, drown in makeup with a tight dress, maybe a bit of cleavage will help you out too. Me going as ‘myself,’ wearing what I wanted, didn’t cut it. You have to fit within the boundaries and expectations put on you. Watching all these casually dressed men waltzing past me in the queue really pissed me off, so I wrote this tune.”
