An old social media post of Raye’s has got people feeling a lot of emotions following her Brit Awards victory over the weekend.

The chart-topping singer made Brits history when she scooped six awards on Saturday night, the most of any artist in a single ceremony.

But it’s fair to say that Raye’s road to the Brits was a particularly long and arduous one, after she famously pleaded with her old record label to allow her to record her debut album back in 2021.

She was eventually released from her contract months later, only to wind up topping both the UK singles and album charts when she was finally allowed to release her first collection, and picked up awards including Best British Album, Best British Song and Best British Artist at the 2024 Brits.

As well as Raye’s six wins, this year’s Brit Awards champions also included Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa, as well as International Acts SZA, Boygenius and Miley Cyrus, while Kylie Minogue was awarded the Global Icon Award.
