BRITs 2024: RAYE breaks record as most-nominated artist in a single year

Congratulations, RAYE!

RAYE makes BRITs history today, as she becomes the artist with the most nominations in a single year ever.

After an incredible 12 months, which saw her celebrate her first-ever Official Number 1 single with 070 Shake collaboration Escapism. and the release of acclaimed Number 2-peaking album My 21st Century Blues, RAYE secures seven nominations at 2024's BRITs ceremony.

This means RAYE surpasses Robbie Williams, Craig David and Gorillaz, who bagged six apiece in 1999, 2001 and 2002 respectively.

Reacting to her phenomenal feat, RAYE told BRITs: "It’s too much. The only way I can describe it is a miracle.

"A year and a half ago, as far as the industry was concerned, I was down and out. Never in my wildest dreams would I think that trying again would mean seven BRIT nominations!

A former BRIT School student herself, RAYE added: "I’m a BRIT kid. I went to BRIT School. It was the goal, to find my way, somehow, to the BRIT Awards. I’ve had some nominations in the past, which I’ve been so grateful for, but this is a whole different thing. Best Album! It’s a joke!

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
