R&B songstress Raveena has a lot to celebrate. As HipHop-N-More reports, the recording artist recently announced that she has signed with Warner Records, and to help commemorate the special occasion, she dropped off a new single called “Rush,” along with an accompanying music video.
What makes the “Close 2 U” singer so unique is her ability to seamlessly blend her Sikh-American background with R&B/Pop elements, making magic on every track. The article notes that her latest upload was made “after experiencing a psychedelic acid trip with visiting an Eastern sound installation at the Rubin Museum.”
“I wrote ‘Rush’ a couple years back and the song was the genesis of me exploring a more intense marriage between Bollywood sounds and the pop/R&B music that I grew up on in America,” Raveena explained. “The song and video are centred around a character I created named Asha, a Punjabi space princess who is transported to a distant planet and learns highly advanced spiritual intelligence from the beings that live there.”
The vocalist aspired to “create a campy ode to the colourful 80’s Bollywood movies and 70’s Western sci-fi movies that I’m obsessed with, complete with a choreographed dance sequence alongside Asha’s alien friends.”
