Emerging UK R&B singer/songwriter Cilla Raie from North London gears up to release her brand new second EP ‘Reconnected’. Her long-awaited contribution to the UK R&B scene.
‘Reconnected’ is a 360 experience that touches on the journey of embracing pain and heartache. The underlying lyricism expresses knowing her self worth, in her most vulnerable song to date ‘Oh God’.
