Album: Midnight Moonlight EP
Ravyn Lenae is the most soulful Chicago artist you'll hear that's still in high school, and while people make a lot out of the fact that she's only 18, this EP is on par with the best hip hop and R&B coming out of Chicago right now. Midnight Moonlight's got an electro-R&B vibe with themes of loneliness, youth, and love paired with smooth vocal stylings and beats on par with FKA Twigs.
Lenae's voice is always ephemeral but remains rooted in the realities of being a young woman growing up in Chicago, and despite her youth, her maturity shines. Hell, she's already been mentioned by Rolling Stone, Vibe, & Nylon Magazine, and her fame and prestige are only going to grow.
Request to hear her new EP on air now!
