She said: “When I think about the panic attacks, the PTSD … you realize someone’s actions become your burden and there’s nowhere else to place them but in a therapy session.

“It’s so isolating. You can’t bring something like that to the surface that easily. You can’t hang out with some friends and say, ‘Well guys, do you want to talk about rape today? This has often crossed my mind!’

‘This song [Ice Cream Man] Do I surface it?’

Raye added that she believes the music industry can make young women vulnerable and artists fear being blacklisted for saying the wrong thing.

She said: “Every girl I know in this industry has a story to tell me. The studio is such a vulnerable space.

“And when you say something, you create an enemy who will spread rumors or blacklist you — and you need those connections to open doors for yourself.”

“Even though people decide a great deal about what is consumed outside, the music industry is still a society protected by gates.”

Raye, who appeared for her voice on hits like “By Your Side” and “You Don’t Know Me,” felt it was difficult to build the narrative she wanted earlier in her career:

She said: “I’ve been asked to write with some of the most incredible artists in the world. I am now not taken seriously enough to manage and direct my own success.

“What else did I have to do to prove myself? I did everything I could and I still wasn’t enough.

“Releasing music that doesn’t say anything means nothing… that was never the reason I decided to be an artist in the first place. I found myself building a narrative that I never intended to build.”

On her focus forward, Raye added, “I need to find peace. I have to see the glass as half full. Music is my way of being loud and commanding the narrative.

“I’ve taken control on a very personal level to reach out to many of the people who have hurt me or crossed a line – I’ve dealt with it head-on.”

The star, who is of mixed race, previously teamed up with musicians Alexandra Burke, Nao and Keisha Buchanan for Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s BBC documentary Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power:

Speaking of the documentary, she said: “Having the chance to unite with women who share the same type of struggle was so powerful. Men will roll their eyes, but as a woman, it’s really a lot harder.

“Then you bring race into play, and it’s just a whole different game. The darker your skin, the tougher it is.

“We still have miles and miles to go, even in terms of production balance – if you look at the average UK top 40, what is the proportion of black women?”

Raye also spoke about her dating life, saying that the phrase she would have on her dating profile would be, “Not available unless you’re my husband.”

She added, “That’s how it would go…I’m not here for any wishy-washy candidates…but it’s really nice because I feel in control, I don’t feel lonely, I’m really awesome.

‘Well, if anyone wants to come and add something to the greatness, by all means…but if not then just go, no, I’m not here for all that other nonsense!’
