Rhea Raj is a pop singer, songwriter, actor, and dancer in NYC.
Rhea has had a whirlwind 2018 with over twenty song releases. Her collaborations with producers and artists worldwide have garnered millions of streams through major record labels including Sony, Armada, and Future House Music, and been shared by The Chainsmokers, Tiesto, and Nicky Romero. Rhea’s international presence has exploded online after starring in several music videos for these songs.
In 2016, Rhea competed in American Idol’s farewell season and her audition aired on national TV. Jennifer Lopez praised her performance, “You have like this breathy quality in your voice which is really really pretty. I like it. Your voice matches your vibe, matches how you look… it’s all working for me.” The following year, MTV featured two of Rhea’s covers: “New Rules” by Dua Lipa, and “I Got You” by Bebe Rexha who shared the Pop/Bollywood remix on social media. Glamour Magazine included the video in their YouTube series “You Sang My Song” where Bebe Rexha watched Rhea’s cover, saying, “you are amazing, you are super talented, I just love your vibe, your voice, the tone of your voice. You got it girl.”
Currently, Rhea is promoting her single “Insecurities” which released earlier this year. The downtempo electronic song is a reflection of her writing style which often explores compelling themes through powerful lyrics and haunting melodies. She cites Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Shakira, and M.I.A as her influences, fusing pop, EDM and world sounds. Rhea Raj’s first major solo project is in the works and will release early 2019.
