Swedish beauty and rising star River is taking over the pop music scene with new steamy single ‘We’ll Be Together’ featuring American rapper Lute
RIVER’s silvery vocals, filled with warm gravitational soulfulness, mesmerizes us as she channels the chemistry between two people who drive each other off the cliff of madness – yet they belong together. “Oh you know that I love you / And that bitch can’t do it like I do” chants RIVER. The visceral soundscape is in sync with her unapologetic boldness as she swings between the extreme emotional ends of jealousy and desire that are found in fated fatal attractions.
River says about the new single, “I wanted to make a song that both tapped into the music of old-school soul that I grew up with mixed with the attitude of current hip-hop. To get Lute on the track helped me reach that vision and took it all to another level.”
The new single “We’ll Be Together” ft. Lute Grounded by lush piano chords, the track is a sultry concoction of pop and R&B weaved with the breakneck choruses of American rapper Lute.
From globetrotting Asia to San Francisco to Mexico, the Stockholm native has been leading a nomadic life for a while busking and performing in various cities while honing her own craft. “Travel was a way for me to let go of other people’s expectations—or at least what I thought they expected of me,” she states. “I was able to restart and find myself. I decided to move back to Sweden, because I knew I was going to do music for the rest of my life. I had my own songs, and I was ready to pursue this.”
RIVER is building her own oeuvre sprayed with a refreshing shade of soulful pop while experimenting with a diverse palette of genres including hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and more. “We’ll Be Together” is the third single and follow up of her previous tracks “Miss Me” and “One.” In every song, her silky high–pitch runs bring a rich warmth to the production, accentuating its thematic emotions to maximum effect.
“My music is like a smokey room in a castle from the 50s, full of crazy hot and lonely badass bitches coming together as one in a healing process,” says RIVER. Through both her music and style, she continues manifesting her commanding persona and authenticity that stand as the centerpiece of her artistry that captivate, thrill, and surprise her audience.
