Perrie Edwards calls Raye's talent 'ridiculous'

Perrie Edwards thinks Raye's talent is "ridiculous".

The former Little Mix member, 30, collaborated with the 26-year-old Brit Award-winner on her song '2-2' for her upcoming debut solo album 'Forget About Us', and has admitted she was blown away by her musical prowess.

During an interview on Apple Music 1, she said: "Raye is the most talented human I’ve ever witnessed in the flesh. It’s scary.

"Every time I see her win an award or anything happens to her, I am so happy because she just deserves to win – she’s the nicest, most genuine person, but her talent is ridiculous.

"Like, she opens her mouth and I’m just in awe of her. At the time, her single was doing really well and we celebrated with a little crisp cake. My mum was trying to find something in the kitchen to congratulate her so we got a little crisp cake and a candle.

"And we wrote a song that day called ‘2-2’ that I’m really proud of."

Perrie – who is married to ex-Liverpool footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – revealed the song was inspired by her "petty" responses to her husband when she won't let an argument drop.

She explained: "She [Raye] came over to my house and we were just chatting. It came about because I was like, 'I’m really petty'.

"My partner and I, we don’t argue a lot. Certain things, I will hold a grudge and not back down. I’m really petty, when he messages me, I won’t send a kiss at the end. I’m like a 14-year-old girl. It’s pathetic.

"We started chatting and that became the concept of the song. It’s called '2-2', so it’s football-related. It was fun to be like, 'Yeah, and when they do this and then you feel like that, and then it’s really annoying and why can’t they do it?', It was basically girl talk put into a song."
