American rock singer-songwriter Rae Radick is back with another single, entitled “Who You’re Meant To Be”. The last time that the singer-songwriter was featured on ai love music was earlier this year when she talked about the single “Sorry’s Not Good Enough”. Of course, she has released a handful of singles between “Sorry’s Not Good Enough” and “Who You’re Meant To Be”. But, her latest one is “Who You’re Meant To Be”, which is released ahead of her self-titled debut album.
How does “Who You’re Meant To Be” fare? Is it a hit or miss? Let’s take a closer look at the track down below!
Embracing Everything About Yourself
Radick’s newest release is a pop-rock ballad that is as open as an open book. It features a vulnerable message about embracing your flaws and keeping faith in the darkest of times. We are our problem and solution. And that we have to remind ourselves that we should be patient and be kind to ourselves, especially in dark times. Radick does a spectacular job painting the message within the songs with the words she chooses.
The singer-songwriter chooses metaphors to perfectly express the feelings of these feelings of being down on oneself. Listeners can easily relate to them. Then, the chorus offers positive words to motivate listeners to be themselves and be kind. “You’re all you ever need, be who you meant to be.”
The musicality of “Who You’re Meant To Be” is something listeners have to listen to. The tune rises to new musical planes in soulfully yet subtle ways. The energy builds with momentum, starting with a steady acoustic vibe with the piano and guitar. Gradually, the energy builds and then explodes into a mid-tempo ballad with drums, electrifying guitar riffs, and immense vibrancy. The singer-songwriter’s vocals also make the metamorphosis with velvety tones in the opening. They are then transformed with soulful and unfiltered, bold energy towards the end. The vocals and instrumentation’s metamorphosis between the two sections is something to listen to as it is felt with positive, empowering vibes that will lift anyone’s spirits.
Rae Radick’s latest single is an empowering listen as it soars to new heights with its lyrics and musicality. “Who You’re Meant To Be” is filled with inspirational messages and metaphors to help guide listeners to recognize that it is ok to be who you are. These motivating messages also translate well with the song’s musicality. Listeners can hear it in the metamorphosis between the acoustic beginning and soaring sensations at the end. If you need something to make your day brighter, you have to listen to “Who You’re Meant To Be” as it is the perfect song to inspire you!

About the Artist: Rae Radick
Rae Radick is an American artist who is from Pennsylvania and currently residing in New York City. She started dancing when she was three years old and danced until college. After securing the lead in her school’s play in sixth grade, Radick’s father signed her up for vocal lessons. “Ever since then, I fell in love with singing and dancing,” she explained, “then when I was sixteen years old, I really wanted to learn more about [song]writing.”
When asked about her musical influences, the singer-songwriter said she had so many influences. However, if she had to pick, Radick said that her first pick would be Stevie Nicks as she has been a big fan of Nicks when she was little. She also cites Kacey Musgraves as her influence as Radick really loves the way she tells her stories: the clever lyrics and the interesting way she writes her songs. And, her final influence is Keith Urban as she loves the way that Urban pours his heart out when he performs.
Radick’s writing is a mixture of her suburban upbringing and living in a big city. She describes it as “Pennsylvania roots with New York City’s spirit”.”The Pennsylvania roots are all about family and growing up in a small town where you know everyone, a little bit more of that groundedness and the issues of being in a small town,” she details, “And the New York City’s spirit is just the energy. There is a pace and a vibe, and everyone feels it. The storytelling aspect comes from the suburbs, but the energy, pace, and spirit is the New York City’s spirit.”
