Life is Beautiful Track of the Week – Ravyn Lenae “Free Room” feat. Appleby
Life is Beautiful is a festival unlike any other. The 3-day event is more than music, but an immersive experience for the soul. Music is the backdrop, the art created and the ideas discussed truly make the festival unique. The music lineup is diverse, to say the least. From hip-hop to electronic to rock, Life is Beautiful has it all. This week’s Track of the Week comes from a lovely lady hitting the festival this year, Ravyn Lenae. Her sultry sound mixes hip-hop and R&B with sounds from all over the world. This week we’re showcasing one of her popular tracks from 2016, “Free Room” feat. Appleby.
Young, sassy, and beautiful, Ravyn Lenae hails from Chicago and is part of the Zero Fatigue artist collective. She has been making music since her mid-teens and her talent shines through in her unique approach to R&B. Lenae is a singer-songwriter unafraid to tell it like it is. “Free Room” is a catchy R&B tune that catches the listener out of the gate. The infectious beat is an instant toe-tapper. Lenae utilizes her voice in various forms, from speaking to singing she encompasses an entire chorus. As the track reaches its bridge, Appleby enters with a reply. Using the same style and grace as Lenae, he adds the lower tones missing from the first half of the track. “Free Room” reaches its climax as they both come together for a duet sure to be an earworm for the rest of the day. Her music video (above) solidifies its danceable nature as talented dancers and Lenae herself bust a few moves. Catch Ravyn Lenae at Life is Beautiful in Downtown Las Vegas September 21-23, 2018.
