British singer-songwriter RAYE returns with stunning new single “Natalie Don’t.” Fresh off the heels of her smash hit “Secrets” with DJ Regard, “Natalie Don’t” is a desperate cry for help that sees RAYE begging another woman to please leave her man alone. The song is RAYE’s 21st Century take on Dolly Parton’s classic hit “Jolene” and was written by RAYE with Grammy-nominated John Hill (Demi Lovato, Foster The People, Kesha, Khalid, and more) and John Blanda (Khalid). “Natalie Don’t” is available now at all digital retail providers via Polydore/Interscope Records and will be included on RAYE’s upcoming EP due out later this summer.
RAYE says about the single, “I knew immediately when I wrote this song that it had to be a single. The track is about that feeling of panic you have when you know you’re losing someone. The song is beautifully hopeless because you know Natalie will do what she wants regardless.” RAYE adds, “I’ve been working on a project that explains the seven stages of grief. The first song is a really dramatic, confused power ballad, and then we progress through to the last song when you finally say with your full heart that you’ve healed. I’m very proud of this work and I can’t wait for everyone to hear all the tracks.”
