With a handful of stellar EPs under her belt, slots supporting SZA and fellow Chicago native Noname, there’s absolutely no denying that Ravyn Lenae is a star. At just 19 years old, the R&B singer who first impressed with the magical Moon Shoes EP has grown from strength to strength over the past few years. Her latest EP Crush, which dropped earlier this year and is produced entirely by The Internet’s Steve Lacey, saw the singer shine brighter than ever on gems like “Sticky” and “Computer Love”. Lenae and Lacey’s work bring to mind the legendary collaborations between the likes of Pharrell and Kelis, or Timbaland and Aaliyah; and have crafted a body of work that is both beautiful and timeless.
For COLORS Ravyn Lenae blesses us with a spellbinding performance of the aforementioned single and stand out cut “Sticky”. Soundtracked by the funkiest of guitars, Lacy provides the perfect sonic canvas for Lenae’s sanguine vocal brushstrokes as there’s no denying that it’s those angelic and syrupy tones that steal the show here. Taking your breath away from that opening falsetto, Lenae lays down her jaw-dropping worthy vocals with perfect control, delivering each note with poise and grace. Press play up top and prepare to be blown away by Ravyn Lenae’s stunning performance of “Sticky” and be sure to check out her equally incredible Crush EP too.
