RAYE is the second artist confirmed to perform at the 2024 BRIT Awards with Mastercard.

The 'Worth It' singer, who is nominated for a record-breaking seven BRITs, will join Dua Lipa at the upcoming ceremony at London's The O2 arena on March 2.

The 26-year-old singer has been shortlisted in several categories, including two separate nods in the Song of the Year category for 'Prada' and 'Escapism'.

The star is also up for RnB Act, Best New Artist, Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for her acclaimed record 'My 21st Century Blues'.

RAYE – who released the album after splitting with Polydor Records in 2021 - said: "The only way I can describe it is a miracle.

"I was down and out 18 months ago but now I am nominated for seven BRIT Awards.

Meanwhile, Olivia Dean is up for three prizes and is determined to add a statuette to her home.

The 'Dive' singer – who is in the running for Best New Artist, Artist of the Year and Pop Act – said: "I'm very excited and feel blessed. I want an award in my house."

Dua has also been nominated for three gongs.

The nominations were revealed on 'Bring on The BRITs with Mastercard: The 2024 Nominations', which was streamed on the official BRITs Instagram and Facebook accounts with presenter Yinka Bokinni joined by BBC Radio 1 DJ Jack Saunders to go through the categories.

This year's BRITs sees a big change to the categories as the number of nominees in the Artist of the Year and International Artist of the Year are doubled from five to 10. A record 98 artists in total are up for awards.

In the former category, Dua and RAYE will face off against Dave and J Hus following last year's controversy regarding the lack of female stars on the shortlist.

The public will also have the opportunity to vote for all five genre awards – Alternative/Rock Act, Dance Act, Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Pop Act and RnB Act - exclusively on Instagram, with voting set to open on February 1.
