Raye took the Royal Albert Hall by storm on Tuesday, with one particularly dramatic performance.
While singing her song Body Dysmorphia, the 25-year-old singer began to undress.
Raye says in the song, ‘I’m so hungry, I can’t sleep / But I know if I eat /Then I’ll be in the toilet on my knees,’ words that would resonate with anybody suffering from body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), a mental health disease in which a person dislikes their appearance.
Raye, actual name Rachel Agatha Keen, gave a powerful message about the value of self-love as she stripped down to her bra and underpants.
The audience applauded when the diva removed her pants and corset while performing the poignant song.
According to MailOnline, Raye raved: ‘I’m taking my clothes off at the Royal Albert Hall!’
She also turned to social media following the concert to talk about her career-defining performance at one of the world’s most historic locations.
On Instagram, Raye wrote in part: ‘The show of my ENTIRE CAREER, I can’t HANDLE THIS I am losing my mind reflecting on this show.’
Referencing the rave reviews the show racked up, she continued: ‘Yes I am posting the reviews cus we got 5 freaking stars across the board.’
She continued: ‘Headlining a sold-out Royal Albert Hall accompanied by @heritageorchestra and the beautiful talents of the youth choir that is @flamescollective_ conducted and arranged by the monster genius that is @wakeuptom.
‘I CAN NOT BELIEVE THIS IS MY REAL LIFE AFTER ALL THESE YEARS OF HUSTLE AND MONSTROUS DREAMS my city saw me for the artist I truly want to be and will continue to strive to be.’
Maya Jama was one of the first to comment on Raye’s post, writing: ‘You have worked so hard and it’s all paid off. Proud of you you STAR.’
David Guetta added: ‘I’m so so so happy and proud!’
Raye is known for her ferocious live performances, and during her Glastonbury show in June, she fought back tears while opening up about sexual assault.
‘Glastonbury I can’t quite believe this sight in front of my eyes, hello,’ she told the audience.
She later added: ‘I haven’t had the simplest of journeys.’
‘I was told that I would never have a fan base big enough for anyone to care about an album, and right now Glastonbury, in front of the Pyramid Stage, I’m performing my album. My debut album. My baby, and my first child.’
Visibly tearing up, Raye admitted: ‘I’m a bit emotional.’
She continued to the engrossed crowd: ‘And you know what’s beautiful about this moment is that there’s a lot of stories that I held in silence, and I dealt with a lot of things alone.
‘I dealt with a lot of tough things. You know, that’s just the journey of life, right, and I’m going to bring the mood down just for a second.
‘This next song is about sexual abuse, and rape, and sexual violence. And I know that’s heavy, okay. But I also know one in four men and women will experience that in their lifetime.
‘So, I know that I’m not alone when I sing this today.’
