ravyInter­na­tion­al rap­per, sing­er and song­writer Ravy today announces the release of her new single U Don’t Know. Pro­duced by Shafique Roman, U Don’t Know is a broody but super-melod­ic track about mov­ing on from a failed rela­tion­ship.

Born in The Neth­er­lands and of Sur­i­n­amese her­it­age, Ravy (born Rachel Man­nies­ing) is an upcom­ing artist who effort­lessly blends hip-hop, pop, R&B, EDM with a unique mix­ture of Indi­an and Sur­i­n­amese sounds. Ravy star­ted her music­al jour­ney as a teen­ager and quickly star­ted turn­ing heads with her tire­less work eth­ic and cre­ativ­ity.

Ori­gin­ally learn­ing Eng­lish from listen­ing to old school hip-hop and cit­ing Missy Elli­ot and Chris Brown as influ­ences, Ravy ini­tially focused on mak­ing a name for her­self domest­ic­ally, before quickly adopt­ing a glob­al out­look.

Since then, Ravy has made huge strides in her career. She linked up with hit European pro­du­cer Shafique Roman who pro­duced sev­er­al tracks on Dutch rap­per Frenna’s Fran­cis album, which pro­pelled to the top of the Dutch Album Top 100. She has also worked with Rock City (writ­ing cred­its include: Rihanna’s Pour It Up; Miley Cyr­us’ We Can’t Stop; and Nicki Minaj’s Only). Ravy has addi­tion­ally worked with not­able pro­du­cer Needlz, who pro­duced Bruno Mars’ Just the Way You Are.

U Don’t Know suc­cess­fully brings togeth­er a melody that demands to be sung along to with a dark hon­est energy backed up by bass-heavy pro­duc­tion. It’s a sat­is­fy­ingly down­beat catchy blend of atmo­spher­ic R&B with a force­ful rap.

 U Don’t Know is out Janu­ary 2nd on all digit­al plat­forms.


Ravy calls The Neth­er­lands her home, but her music is big­ger than that. Ravy is a rap­per, sing­er, song­writer and dan­cer who com­bines rap, with pop, EDM, R&B blend­ing it with tra­di­tion­al Indi­an and Sur­i­n­amese music, and oth­er genres. Ravy writes all her music and works closely with her pro­du­cer Shafique Roman to make dynam­ic tracks that leave a last­ing mark on the music world.

Ravy hails from The Hag­ue but has South Amer­ic­an roots. Born Rachel Man­nies­ing, Ravy fell in love with rap as a child, learn­ing to speak Eng­lish flu­ently by listen­ing to old school hip hop, car­toons and video games.

A trained dan­cer with an incred­ible work eth­ic, Ravy has fea­tured on tracks and worked with sev­er­al not­able artists and pro­du­cers. She recor­ded with hit song­writer Rock City, who wrote Rihanna’s “Pour It Up”; Miley Cyr­us’ “We Can’t Stop” and Nicki Minaj’s “Only”. She’s also worked with not­able pro­du­cer Needlz, who pro­duced Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are” and Cardi B ft. Kehlani’s “Ring”.

Inspired by Missy Elli­ot and Chris Brown, Ravy brings impec­cable dance cho­reo­graphy to her music videos and per­form­ances, dar­ing to show­case a huge kin­et­ic energy in everything she does.
