RANI takes centre stage as with her first solo single, the melodic R&B number "Love For Me", as she gears up to drop her debut album.
At just 20 years old, the singer and songwriter from the small Dutch village of Heerhugowaard has already made a big impact on the world.
Best known for featuring on Sam Feldt’s smash hit dance single “Post Malone”, RANI has racked up prolific collabs with artists such as KREAM for “Go Somewhere”, Martin Jensen for “At Least I Had Fun” and Faustix for “Crying In The Sun”, amongst others.
Now, RANI is stepping into the light with the solo single “Love For Me”. Known for her vocals on popular dance music tracks, the catchy, upbeat R&B number sees RANI move away from the EDM genre as she sings about relatable relationship struggles. “I’ve always loved soul and R&B, especially when it comes with a pop sensibility, but my first explorations in the music industry were in dance music”, she explained of the shift in sound.
Relatability is a key theme that will be featuring on RANI’s upcoming debut album, set for release this autumn on Sony. “Now, more than ever, people are feeling overwhelmed with emotions and I want my songs to let them know that it is normal to feel like that because it is part of our shared human experience”, she said.
