As she drops her new single "Lovesick", British singer and rapper Ray BLK has been chosen as the first headliner of Apple Music's revamped 'UK R&B' playlist.

Debuting as the first headliner of Apple Music’s ‘UK R&B’ playlist, Ray BLK shares a new single that arrives with a message from the London singer-songwriter:


“For those that don’t know I’m also a rapper…I’ve always been a big fan of rap and it’s influenced the way I write my lyrics. I’ve even had people tell me that I write R&B music like a rapper, so I want my return to clearly show everyone the sound to expect from me” she said.


New single “Lovesick” showcases Ray’s rap leanings in style with the producer Nana Rogues. Described as a “revenge song”, the track is the first to drop from Ray’s forthcoming debut album, set for release in 2021. “It’s about taking control and reclaiming your power after being disrespected in a relationship and getting even”, she said.


Also featured on the playlist are a couple of Ray BLK’s friends and mentors.


“Tiana Major9 is an incredible singer, I had her as support for 2 of my headline shows and she KILLED it! I’ll always champion her”, Ray said. “I also loveee “Flip Side” by Tamera, that song is my bag! She also has an amazing voice. As for collaboration, I’d love to work with Scribz Riley! He’s a dope producer and writer and I love his sonic and of course queen Ella Mai!
