We're giving you an early taste of our Ones To Watch 2017.

Last updated: 18 December 2016 - 5.43pm

BT Music isn’t just the home of classic tracjks and fresh chart hits. We also like to spot the stars of tomorrow.

Our Ones To Watch guide for 2017 will be available on the BT Music service very soon, but to whet your appetite in December we’ve got a quick taste of one young singer who we think is destined for big things.

18-year-old RAYE is a singer-songwriter from London who already has eight years of writing, performing and recording experience under her belt.

Yet another successful Brit School student, she first caught our attention with the 2014 EP Welcome To The Winter, which earned her a record deal with Polydor.


With celebrity fans included Charli XCX, Olly Alexander from Years and Years, Stormzy and Jonas Blue, she’s one of the most in-demand vocalists in the UK.

Hip-hop legend Nas used her guest vocals on his single War and she’s also supported Jess Glynne on her recent arena tour.

The Croydon singer has made the longlist for the BBC Sound of 2017 and BT Music is featuring the videos for her tracks ‘I, U, Us’ and ‘Shhh’ this month, so you can discover for yourself what all the fuss is about.

Watch RAYE’s latest vidoes on BT Music now.
