New single from RAYE featuring Nigerian artist Mr Eazi. Samples Ja Rule & Ashanti’s modern classic Always on Time. If this doesn’t smash I swear.

Mr Eazi is pretty huge in Africa at the moment so at least we can be sure of it smashing there

It is like a basic version of Mabel's music, but it's super catchy and living for the sample :P

I do like this, but I wish the sample was a bit subtler, it's almost a cover version.

Love how she mentions 'Bug-A-Boo' in the lyrics too :)

Irreplaceable too!



Serving looks in the MV.

Charted at #60 this week (#44 on sales). It's been between 100 and 200 on Spotify recently, could take off with good playlist adds. Capital are playing it and I'm sure Radio 1 will follow suit soon enough.

Yeah I think it could be a hit around Christmas, it's definitely growing.

I'm glad this has turned out such a big hit for RAYE. It's #11 (combined) on Spotify, so should go top 20 this week.



Love that they put out a video for the RAMZ remix, especially since it's shot in LDN. RAYE sings Mr Eazi's verse in this version too!
