We caught up with her to find out a little more about this 17 year old starlet. Read below to find out a few of her beauty tips, what the message is behind her single, and more!
1.Where are you from and when is your birthday?
I’m from New Jersey and my birthday is April 8th! I just turned 17 and got my license!
2. What is something not too many people know about you?
I can actually play guitar. I got my first guitar on my 11th birthday and it really helps now with all my songwriting.
3. What are 3 must-have beauty products in your routine?
4. If you could work with any artist, who would it be?
I have a celebrity crush on Drake! It would be dope to work with him on a song (but who wouldn’t love that lol) Ed Sheeran would be amazing to write with, he is such a lyrical genius.
5. What was the inspiration behind your single, “Boys Like You?“ Boys Like You was about a toxic relationship I was in and no matter how bad this person would treat me, I would always go back to him. At the end of the song it refers to taking the power back and standing up for yourself. The song is really honest and I think that’s why it resonates with so many people. I’m really proud of the impact it’s had.
Rayla is truly relatable and a shining rising star. Radio Disney charts are proof! Congratulations to Rayla and her team from A&R Practice Worldwide, (who have also worked with Descendant’s star Sofia Carson).
Her single, “Boys Like You” took the #2 spot on the Top Radio Disney Songs for the week!
