“Rush” follows Raveena‘s 2021 single “Tweety”, and is accompanied by a video directed by Raveena and Munachi Osegbu.
Speaking about the release, Raveena explained, “I wrote “Rush” a couple years back and the song was the genesis of me exploring a more intense marriage between Bollywood sounds and the pop/R&B music that I grew up on in America. The song and video are centered around a character I created named Asha, a Punjabi space princess who is transported to a distant planet and learns highly advanced spiritual intelligence from the beings that live there. In the video that I co-directed with Munachi, I wanted to create a campy ode to the colorful 80’s Bollywood movies and 70’s Western sci fi movies that I’m obsessed with, complete with a choreographed dance sequence alongside Asha’s alien friends.”
She’s yet to follow up her 2019 debut album Lucid.
