UK Artist of the Week: Raelle

UK R&B newcomer Raelle moves us with her super sultry new single “Purple Skies”—out now—we’re proud to present her as our Artist of the Week.

Combining neo-soul, jazz, and electronic soundscapes, Raelle has created an undeniably delicious blend of R&B-infused goodness. Her latest single “Purple Skies” is a dream from start to finish. Channelling the likes of Solange and Snoh Aalegra, Raelle takes her listeners on a celestial journey of soul-tinged goodness and we can’t get enough.

Talking about the single, Raelle explains, “In between the certainty of the blue skies and the radiance of the sunset, there lies in between this a sky that is a kaleidoscope of purple clouds. These purples skies never seem to stay and can change at an instant although unstable and uncertain, they are remarkably beautiful and a sense of fearful peace washes over me every time I see them.

There is so much beauty in uncertainty. I see this in my own life. In 2020 my life was turned upside down, in terms of love, family, job security and the fear of waking up to find out the pandemic took someone I knew. The uncertainty filled me every day. At first it was hard, and I couldn’t cope with not knowing what my life would look like the following day, but then I started to realise how much of an important time in my life the uncertain periods were.

They taught me to cherish those I love, how to be strong and how to be brave, you have to fall to realise where you were going wrong. Although this was painful at the time, coming back from those situations that taught me the most. So this song is about embracing the uncertain times, seeing them as lessons and understanding how much you can grow as a person from them.”

“Purple Skies” is in stores now.
