Desire is the theme of Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez’s @thereal_rsg R&B/lounge jazz flavoured “Better For You”

RAINA SOKOLOV-GONZALEZ, “Better For You”

“Better For You” is spicy R&B/pop of a slightly different bent, with plenty of lounge jazz flavour from NYC Latinx singer/songwriter Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez.  It’s a very pointed look at women who want to both desire someone and be desired, and questions men through this song why it has to be so complicated.  Yes, “Better For You’ is all about sex and is designed to make men uncomfortable while also giving extra thought to what it’s saying to them.  Raina has a classic pop style that surely draws from singers like Lena Horne, Judy Garland and Billie Holiday, while invoking a directness you hear in more contemporary singers like Pink and Amy Winehouse that doesn’t mince words to drive her messages home. “Better For You” is entertaining and provoking, proving the two can co-exist in one song.
