Bailey Rae returned in 2016 with what NPR called “boundary-defying, epic music” for her third studio album, The Heart Speaks in Whispers which was also declared “the best R&B of 2016” by The Guardian. The album featured the single, “Green Aphrodisiac” named by Billboard as one of the “10 best R&B songs of 2016”.
The new songs soared in her live performances as Bailey Rae embarked on a worldwide tour, including festivals and a special guest appearance for Stevie Wonder’s BST Hyde Park London concert. She has also appeared in the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Playboy Jazz Fest (Hollywood Bowl), Singapore Jazz Fest, and Glastonbury.
