In addition to the singer’s captivating look, her voice is even more intriguing. Her vocals are soft and whimsical.

The single is much more than an entertaining listen. For Rae, the song reflects her artistry. She describes the creative process, “I went through a period of time where I definitely took on the tortured artist persona. It was hard. A lot of sessions ended with me feeling lost and hopeless, or in a daze from smoking too much weed trying to find the ‘muse’. And then something clicked. I picked up a guitar, I opened Logic on my laptop. The process became fun again.” The listener can feel the singer’s enjoyment on the track, adding to Tessa Rae’s alluring authenticity.
