Cat Velez - 15th Aug 2016

Flashy colours, 90’s-inspired wardrobes and unintimidated feminine swagger taking hold of our screen… that’s what we’re used to seeing from Charli XCX. This time however, we don’t see her at all! Miss XCX channels her confidence behind the camera in her directorial debut for this stylish performance video for Raye's track I / U / Us.

Raye boasts plenty of unfazed girl-power, backed up by her posse of high-spirited guyfriends in an otherwise empty iceskating rink as she casually gets back at a former lover with reasonable lyrical arguments. Now that's how you get over a break up!
