Music lovers are still talking about Arin Ray’s Platinum Fire, the 2018 record that would serve as the last album we received from the singer-songwriter—until today (June 3). Although he did deliver his Phases II EP in 2019, Ray has been relatively quiet on the album circuit, however, after announcing the arrival of Hello Poison, antennas were up. Ray delivered singles like “The Mood,” a track where he received assistance from Los Angeles spitter D Smoke, and “Gold,” and now the full scope of what he has been working on has been revealed.
“I’ve been listening to Arin Ray for a minute. That Platinum Fire album he dropped, that’s my go-to when I’m on the airplane,” Blxst told Uproxx back in April. “This was before I was even Blxst, so double back and be able to work with him, I think that was a full-circle moment for me.” Stream Hello Poison and share your thoughts.
