R.A.E’s 「Like This」 Released on 7-inch Vinyl


The 5th release features R.A.E, a female R&B singer/rapper hailing from South East London (R.A.E stands for “Rise Above Everything”). Since her debut in 2019, she has garnered attention by reintroducing a nostalgic 90s style. In 2020, she won the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition and was selected by GQ magazine as one of “The 46 new musicians to make 2020 better” alongside artists like Beabadoobee and Arlo Parks. She is considered one of the rising stars in the UK music scene.

This release is a 7-inch featuring the MV tracks “Like This” and “Summer Love” from her latest EP “Listen Up,” released in October 2021. The A-side showcases “Like This,” a positive R&B track that became her most popular song, featuring dance classic homage hooks. The B-side presents “Summer Love,” a summertime mellow R&B track with acoustic guitar and refreshing synths. Both songs blend the 90s R&B sound reminiscent of TLC, among others, with the DIY sensibilities of today’s bedroom R&B singers, creating a modern-retro sensation.

These tracks mark her first physical release, and the record includes a download code. Recommended for fans of Wolftyla, Jenevieve, J.Lamotta Suzume, and others.
