It was Raye’s night at the Brit Awards, the one celebrated at The O2 Arena in London (UK) March 2024, Saturday 2nd. Raye made history winning six out of the seven awards she was nominated for, surpassing the previous record of four wins in a single ceremony held by Blur, Adele and Harry Styles.

Her wins for “Mastercard Album of the Year,” “Best New Artist“, “Artist of the Year”, “Song of the Year with Mastercard” for Escapism, and “R&B Act” catapult Raye to the top of the Brits’ leaderboard for the most wins in a single night, surpassing the previous record of four held by Harry Styles (2023), Adele (2016), and Blur (1995).

Raye also delivered a triumphant medley performance, featuring ‘Ice Cream Man,’ ‘Prada,’ & ‘Escapism’.

Raye, one of the most extraordinary and influential musical talents in the UK, boasts over 3 billion total streams, more than 411 million views on YouTube, and over 34 million monthly listeners on Spotify. In addition to her monumental victories, the British-Ghanaian popstar has already locked in numerous gigs around the world for the upcoming summer season.
