Rainey Qualley just released a new song!
The 26-year-old singer says she was inspired to write the lyrics when she was in a “dark place,” but the track still has a fun, uplifting beat.
“TOO CLOSE is finally out!!” Rainey wrote on her Instagram. “This is a really personal song for me. I wrote it about being in an unhappy/stifling situation and I realizing I need to follow my heart, put myself first (finally), and get as far away from it as possible. But I wanted to write it in a way that sounded like a break up song so everyone could relate.”
“Since the motivation for writing it came from a dark place, I wanted to juxtapose that sonically and create a song that (hopefully) feels really good to listen to,” she added. “I’ve been looking forward to putting this song out for a while. And I’m really proud and excited about how it came together. Its been very cathartic to share what (Producer/cowriter) @nickdungo I brought to life. 🌸⚔🌸 enjoy! Xx.”
Rainey‘s first single, “S.I.D,” was released earlier this summer.
