In The Spotlight

Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez – “Better For You”

Based in Brooklyn, this intoxicating singer and songwriter was born into a family of professional musicians and grew up surrounded by jazz, R&B and soul from an early age. With her unique cross-genre sound and lyrical poetry, she opened for artists like Starchild & The New Romantic and worked with jazz composer William Parker, both on stage and on his albums. She debuted with “Unarmed” in 2018.

Brewing an auditory blend of various musical leaves, her new single is the warm sonic beverage you crave. While stirring smooth R&B with rhythmic jazz and infusing it with some Latin flavors, it’s the mellow keys, swinging bossa-nova rhythm and her fierce, alluring vocals singing about empowerment, that make this sexy jam sound like you’re in a smoky bar on a swampy New Orleans evening.
