Her current single, Pick a Side, has been gaining traction nationally and landed on Billboard's Adult R&B Top Ten for weeks, eventually nabbing the number two spot. The only artist in front of her, the iconic Alicia Key, and in the company of other music industry heavy hitters like John Legend, Trey Songz, and Usher.

In January of this year, Billboard put Raiche on a list of 15 Hip Hop and R&B Artists to Watch in 2021 and had this to say: Raiche is another gifted member of the aptly titled Island Prolific roster, co-founded by songwriter-producer Prince Charlez (Rihanna, Beyoncé, Usher). Gaining favorable notice in 2018 for her smoky, robust vocals on “Money Pies,” Raiche upped the soulful quotient in 2019 with “Complicated,” followed by her EP Drive, issued via GDE/Island Prolific/Atlantic. The title track was featured in Netflix’s Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker. Raiche’s hard work and promise are paying off: The singer-songwriter currently ranks at No. 8 on the Adult R&B airplay chart with relationship slow-burner “Pick a Side,” from her upcoming debut album.
