After becoming a finalist on X Factor, Rai swiftly created her own music demonstrating intimate lyrics with her distinctive charisma proving that she is destined to transcend beyond her televised launch pad.
She may be 17, but that is definitely not stopping Rai-Elle from capturing and representing the essence of R&B music. Rai has taken her influence from some prominent members in the R&B/Soul industry such as Beyoncé, Brandy, Donnell Jones and Lauryn Hill. Rai creates a nostalgic appreciation of sounds coupled with modern-day influences such as the likes of Jacob Banks, Teyana Taylor and H.E.R.

Rai-Elle’s newest EP titled ‘KSB’ comprises of four great singles with one of her popular singles titled ‘Always On My Mind’. The debut single, produced by Courage was written by Rai-Elle herself. The fresh single is a catchy bop as Rai effortlessly captures the whirlwind of emotions you experience when being in a new relationship. The debut single is powered by sparse but expressive guitar licks, taking you into a nostalgic state which may have you reminiscing on a crush, old flame or loved one. The music video for ‘KSB, Always On My Mind’, is a must watch as you get to see the singers authentic self. This visibility especially for the younger demographic sets a great example for them.
