In a world of cookie-cutter pop stars and soundalike singers, SIMPLY RAYNE is a rare talent carving out her own lane. The self-described “Afrotina” from San Antonio, Texas blends the polish of contemporary pop and the maturity of classic R&B into a unique and youthful style that is truly her own.
From an early age, the artist born Reiana Fernandez knew she wanted to be an entertainer. Initially, she wanted to become an actress and a model, but after becoming enamored with Beyoncé, she convinced her mother to sign her up for vocal lessons too.
A brush with Queen Bey herself, on the iconic singer’s Mrs. Carter World Tour, marked her transition from Reiana to Simply Rayne.
