Clear the way, there’s a new Queen in town.
There’s no doubt about it - Rae Morris has levelled up. Sure, it may be crass to take an artistic endeavour and reduce it to simplified grades, but the build up to her second album has been punctuated by bangers so brilliant they accept nothing less than A list billing.
‘Reborn’ gave us the first taste of an evolution, but its was ‘Do It’ that really tipped the scales. Shimmering in fresh abandon, it stood toe to toe with all challengers. A moment of pop perfection, it showed a side to Rae Morris that, while always there, felt the start of something new and exciting.
That’s the canvas that ‘Atletico (The Only One)’ builds on. Carefree, it’s the kind of track that shines bright even in the darkest months of the year. A song for all seasons, it completes an unbeatable hand. On her debut, Rae Morris may have been an exciting new talent. With her follow up, she’s nothing less than essential. Clear the way, there’s a new Queen in town.
