#WorldPremier of @Raye6 “Lifted Sand” shot on location at Castle Ashby De La Zouch

ray6lifted sand

Raye 6, the sexy siren known for her electric, in your face persona, reveals a softer side in her latest release “Lifted Sand”. On a recent UK tour with ILuvLive, Raye 6 had the chance to record with founder of Baby People UK and renowned producer Baby J (Amy Whinehouse, Dead Prez, Estelle, Mexican Kids At Home). Written and composed in the beautiful countryside of Derby, “Lifted Sand”, the infectious esoteric musical piece poses a few questions “who do you love/who do you trust/is there a fire/burning me up?” The poetic chorus “lifted on a faded grain of sand” is a description of love so faded the only thing left holding it up is a grain of sand. Filmed by Ne$$ of Weekend Money, the scenic visual for Lifted Sand was shot on location at Castle Ashby De La Zouch in Leicestershire, United Kingdom

“During a private listening session of the soon-to-be titled project between Baby J & Raye 6 ( due out later this year), we chose a few favorites, “Women Beat The Men” , “Enuff of You” and “I Like” as single material.” WBS Studios

#GoodRead on “WHY 2013 WAS A TERRIBLE YEAR FOR WOMEN IN HIP-HOP”

IMG_20120729_160016

Dee Lockett of pigeonsandplanes.com wrote, “Many critics likened 2013 to 1993—two robust years of genre-defining albums from rap legends and legends-in-the-making. But what made 1993 so undeniably perfect was its diversity. Alongside the male MCs we celebrate twenty years later, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Salt-n-Pepa, Monie Love, The Conscious Daughters, and Bo$$ each released critically acclaimed albums that year. 2013 may as well have been 1903 with its hushed female presence in hip-hop culture. And when women’s presence wasn’t silent, it was oftentimes loudly embarrassing.

In 2013: Lauryn Hill spent three months in prison for tax evasion; TLC essentially replaced Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes with Lil’ Mama; Eve put out her fourth studio album Lip Lock and no one noticed (less than 20,000 sold to date); only Tink’s Boss Up mixtape and M.I.A.’s Matangi made year-end lists for a rap album by a woman. Meanwhile, SPIN included Matangi in its “20 Best Pop Albums of 2013” list, voiding the album’s rap cred. Debut albums from Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea, and Nitty Scott MC never came, and Angel Haze had to publicly beg for a 2013 release date for hers. The biggest news story on Foxy Brown’s comeback was when she fell on stage in New York. The list goes on….”

#Music by @JustSZA “S” is purely enchanting a must listen.

The beginning sentence of her bio is, “SZA envelopes your soul at first listen.” and we couldn’t agree more. From one of our favorite go-to guys/gals for fresh and new talent, NOISEY …was this beautiful creature who will touched our souls. They recently shared their thoughts about her stating,  “A pitch-perfect blend of glowering, boomy beats, fluttering synths, and SZA’s luxuriant tones, the St. Louis-born singer messes with R&B and serves it up fresh.”

You can’t help but get absorbed into her world. This Maplewood native is natural and he project titled ‘S’ is a must download to anyone who appreciates relaxing and melodic music.

Have you heard about @Raye6 “Journey to Lifted Sand” #UKTOUR ?

 

I went to a private invite party for Ms. Raye 6’s birthday party and her friend Instagram’d this which sums up so much about her.

 “Women are going to form a chain, a greater sisterhood than the world has ever known!” Sisterhood is real!! — 

Raye6 is explosive, mysterious and can be down right demanding, but she deserves it. (in our mind at least) She recently went to the UK for a mini tour and recording session… which was a personal present from a dear loved one which we thought was super special and she is about to drop the body of work titled , “Journey to Lifted Sand”. A UK blogger stated, “The fourth performance of the night, was from an amazing young woman, with an incredible and powerful voice that blew the audience away, if you havent guessed by now.. I’m talking about the wonderful Raye 6. Coming all the way from the US of A, Raye 6 put on a great show, that had the audience woo’ing and ooh’ing. Raye 6 bought a different type of energetic vibe to the show that intrigued the audience. Her voice as well as her style was very unique and had many people asking questions such as ‘Who is she?’ and ‘Why have I not heard of her before?’.”
