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.
She’s currently recording her debut EP with an all-star team that includes noted songwriter Makeba Riddick-Woods (Beyonce, Mariah Carey), producers Tha Aristocrats, and choreographer/creative director Luther Brown (Janet Jackson, Alicia Keys). With the project’s first single, the radio ready “Say Less” setting the tone, 2020 is looking to be the year that the world gets to know Simply Rayne.
Rayne is inspired by the hip hop/R&B fusion of today and the medley of popular songs that were staples in her parents’ record collection -— icons like Prince, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson — and, of course, her muse Beyoncé. “My music is fun, and you can bounce to it! It’s not bubblegum pop, but a mixture of R&B, hip-hop and pop,” says the Rayne. Rayne’s single, “Don’t Stop,” feat. Baby Bash reached No. 42 on Billboard’s Dance Chart in 2018.
