Raiche’s heart is fluttering uncontrollably from the “Feelings” she’s experiencing on her latest single.
Raiche lets down her guard on “Feelings,” falling madly for someone new following love stories with no happy ending. Images of a flourishing relationship between her and this potential are not far from her mind as she comfortably sings of precious moments together.
“Feelings” is the latest song lifted from Raiche’s upcoming debut album, Loveland, which is arriving later this year. She shared the downtempo “Fool” as its first single in July. It was around that time she confirmed its presence on her first full-length for Atlantic Records.
Of the album’s inspiration, Raiche told Rated R&B, “It’s about everyday love.” She added its creation was therapeutic in many ways. “I am such an open person. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I don’t care to sometimes be brutally honest and live my truth.
I find it awful if I have to hold things back. It stresses me out. So it’s even more therapeutic in that sense where other people are like, ‘Wow. I went through that same thing’ or ‘I feel that emotion,’ or ‘you are speaking to me.'”
Raiche dropped “Burn Your Clothes” and “Pick a Side (Remix)” featuring Ty Dolla $ign in 2021. Her latter song was initially released without accompaniment and managed to get Raiche to No. 2 across R&B charts, including Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart.
No word if any of those three mentioned songs will appear on Raiche’s Loveland. It would seem beneficial to include “Pick a Side,” considering it’s been streamed nearly 1.3 million times.
