Cilla Raie delivers infectious sultry R&B gem "Longtime".

UK R&B singer and songwriter Cilla Raie leads 2022 with her brand new infectious sultry R&B single, "Longtime", produced by XVR Blck.

Piercing together R&B sounds with a hint of drill, the single gives you the feel of a vintage aura with smooth and silky sonic vibes.

"'Longtime' was written with such ease and deep into the night, it represents a new era of growth for me. Which is a longtime coming, giving grown woman vibes and stepping into my divine feminine energy, going after what I want with no fear".

In 2021, Cilla Raie released her 'Reconnected' EP which caught the attention of many major media outlets.

The EP has since peaked at number 2 on the UK iTunes R&B/Soul Album Charts.

Cilla Raie began recording music at just 14-years-old and takes inspiration from her early influences such as Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, and Tamia.

During the early stages of her musical journey, Cilla was mentored by super producer DaVinche (Stormzy, Skepta, Wiley) and manager Jackie Davison MBE (Wayne Hector).

In 2014, Cilla Raie released her first self-titled debut project produced by Sillky (Mabel, Teedra Moses, Craig David) and The Arcade (Doja Cat, Khalid, Migos).

She successfully embarked on a national school tour across the UK performing with legislation group UK Music.

She also has a unique entrance to the music industry having graduated with a BA honors in Public Relations and a Masters degree scholarship in Music Business Management.

"These experiences I had juggling various part time jobs, being a student and doing music shaped and molded me into the artist and independent entrepreneur that I am today being an independent artist".

Her music reveals a deeper message for all: the importance of self-love, reassurance, and confidence.

2022 will see the release of yet another exciting Cilla Raie EP supported by Help Musicians/MOBO Awards and Arts England/National Lottery.
