Never Change – [Rexx Life Raj]
With no exaggeration or hyperbole cap, Rexx Life Raj is one of my favorite artists right now. Always thoughtful and introspective his lyrics are filled with life lessons. Combined with his smooth, rich vocals, he has such a refreshing, engaging sound. If you are new to Raj, you came in at the perfect time because his latest visually-assisted offering “Never Change” serves the perfect introduction. Though currently on a nationwide tour with Bas, The Bay Area native takes us on a tour of Europe with some gorgeous shots of Berlin and London as the backdrop for the Marco Alexander directed visuals. As Raj explains in the song, the exotic setting is, “Not on some look at me shit but so you can feel it/ so you can know this shit hella close if you keep building.” It’s just one of the many gems he drops in an effort that, despite it’s cool, mellow ambiance, will give you some real motivation. “Never Change” is attached to anything larger at the moment, but check out his 2018 EP California Poppy, for some more inspiration and bounce.
