“With such maturity and authenticity already present in her style, it’s hard to imagine a future without Maicie’s overwhelmingly all-encompassing vocals as a main fixture on the radio.” – AnR Factory
16-year old singer-songwriter Maicie Rayner is due to release her new single ‘Meant to Be’ on Friday 9th April 2021, which she has co-written with Oliver Zsar. The song is produced by Oliver Zsar and James Curtis-Thomas. Maicie has previously seen support from BBC Introducing Essex, Soho Radio and A&R Factory, and has also represented Essex in the Miss Teen Great Britain competition.
‘Meant to Be’ is about breaking free from all the people and things that are holding you back, in order to promote growth, renewal and independence. The single is backed by electro-pop instrumentation that provides electronic swells throughout and frames Maicie’s incredible vocal performance. Swinging between uplifting verses and a suspenseful chorus, the beat gradually develops as an allegory of taking back control as empowered Rayner sings “I don’t need you anymore. Was it ever there at all? I’m breaking down your walls!”
Blending youthful energy with mature confidence, the young singer goes on a journey of self-discovery and learning to love herself. Lyrics and music intertwine into a powerful manifestation of newly found freedom. Exuberating the attitude of an established pop star, Maicie Rayner tackles toxic relationships, breaking free and finding your worth.
The cinema location and vibrant colour palette in the upcoming music video subtly provide the fitting background of the story, juxtaposing the old building with an empowering message. Clever camera work and lighting follow the singer throughout, providing the spotlight of a rising artist who knows her value and what she wants to achieve.
Influenced by the likes of Joy Crookes, Jorja Smith and Amy Winehouse, Maicie is quickly making a name for herself, with an EP in the works due for release in the summer and still at just 16 years old, the future looks bright for the Essex singer. Follow her socials for the latest updates.
