Charli XCX Helped Write This New RAYE Track And It's Cool As Shit

We're sorry if we haven't introduced you to 18 year-old South Londoner RAYE. Last year she dropped a great EP Welcome To The Winter and then hooked up with Stormzy for a great single Ambition earlier this year.

Now she's enlisted Charli XCX for her biggest anthem to date I-U-Us. It's got early Charli written all over it with the layered vocals and flickery electronic stylings but it would be nothing if it weren't for RAYE who is a natural popstar. She's got a distinct style and an attitude that's hard to pass by.

It was also co-written by Noonie Bao who is the genius behind Carly Rae Jepsen's Run Away With Me and MØ's Final Song.

Charlie directed the video and it's obviously bloody great because if the song has proved anything it's XCX and RAYE are a force to be reckoned with.
