In 2016 Bailey Rae returned with “boundary-defying, epic music” (NPR) for her third studio album, The Heart Speaks In Whispers, also declared “the best R&B of 2016” (The Guardian). The album featured the stunning “Green Aphrodisiac” named “10 best R&B songs of 2016” (Billboard) and selected by President Obama for his summer playlist.
