Gaining popularity as a teenager, emerging R&B singer Arin Ray has exploded onto the music scene, following his 2011 audition onto the reality talent show, X Factor. Even though he didn’t win, he won over audiences across the country with his wise-beyond-his-years personality and singing voice. Moving out of the shadow of X Factor, Arin spent the last few years in the studio honing his craft, staying out of the LA party scene, becoming a father, and working on his debut album.

Ray self-released a single, “Turn It Up,” in 2013, but within a couple years had co-written songs for Jason Derulo (“Love Like That“) and Chris Brown (“KAE“). Ray resumed solo work with the Phases EP in 2016, the same year he was credited with co-writing songs for the likes of K. Michelle (the charting single “Ain’t You“), Ro James (“Ride“), DJ Mustard (“Another Summer“), and Jahkoy (“Don’t Stop the Vibe“). In 2018, Ray made his major-label album debut with Platinum Fire on Interscope. The album featured collaborations with Terrace Martin, Nez & Rio, and Childish Major, among others, and did exceptionally well on the music charts. What do you guys think?
