Raye is delighted to be “doing [her] own thing”.
The ‘Waterfall’ singer treated guests and VIPs to the first live performance of her new single ‘Hard Out Here’ at Amazon’s Prime Day Dream House at the Village Underground in London on Wednesday (06.07.22) and she admitted she’s excited to be working as an independent artist after parting ways with her former record company Polydor.
She tearfully aid on stage: “I’m independent now, this is a big moment guys. I was with a major label for seven years of my life. I went on Twitter and I was like please let me be free and thanks to you lot, I managed to find my way out. I’m not chasing the chart now, I’m doing my own thing.”
Raye admitted to fans she was coming close to a wardrobe malfunction as her pink suit jacket slipped to reveal a matching bra.
She quipped: “My outfit is gonna come off soon, guy’s its slowly coming off.”
Despite the party atmosphere at the event, the ‘Secrets’ singer stayed away from alcohol.
She admitted: “I can’t sing and drink, if I take a shot of tequila before I can’t hit the notes right.”
