Kayla Rae has proven she is well on her way to pop stardom with her new single, “Get Close.”
The artist and songwriter originally from Denver broke into the music scene in 2018 and has only climbed higher since then. Her emotional jams about love, heartbreak, and everything in between have become mainstays on the radio and even led her to opening for the likes of Rae Sremmurd and Wiz Khalifa.
With her angelic falsetto vocals paired with a rich midtempo melody, Rae lays her heart on the table in this passionate love song about yearning to turn a spark into a wildfire with someone. Her heartfelt and passionate lyrics are both extremely personal and universal at the same time. Rae sings about how lust gets the better of her despite giving herself good advice. Her lover has become a “habit” to her, but she can’t help the way she feels wanting to “get close” to this person. Does this sound like an all-too-familiar situation for any of you? Yeah, we’ve been there too.
Kayla Rae has mastered the art of writing songs that strike all the right chords and get you deep in your feels. Her swooning vocals are filled with equal parts vulnerable and strong which make her tracks that much more empathetic. Definitely give her a listen but be prepared for an emotional journey.
