Pittsburgh-based R&B recording artist Chandra Rhyme has returned in a major way with the release of new single "Bullet" and its accompanying visuals. The independent artist has already accumulated hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify with previous singles, despite only arriving on the R&B scene in 2020, and she looks set to continue her impressive rise with this latest release.
“Bullet” is an undeniable winner and highlights Chandra’s impressive songwriting along with her gorgeous and silky vocals. Inspired to write the song by a Tyler Perry TV show, it talks about being in a toxic relationship and is infused with addictive melodies and a huge singalong anthemic hook that will no doubt be stuck in everyone’s head after just one listen. With such a high-quality release, it’s clear Chandra Rhyme has a bright future ahead and is certainly one to watch out for in 2022 if her upcoming material is as strong as this.
Speaking further on the release, Chandra says, “I wrote this song after watching one of my favorite shows at the time called The Haves and the Have Nots by Tyler Perry. There’s a character named Wyatt on the show that struggles with drug addiction. At that moment, a light bulb went off in my mind where I wanted to take that concept and relate it to love. ‘Bullet’ is about being in a toxic relationship and being addicted to someone that you know is not good for you. In the end, you wind up staying and ‘biting the bullet’. You know this relationship is not good for you but because of how much you love this person, you still want them in your life, and it is hard to let go. No matter how much you try, you just can’t give them up.”
“Bullet” is out now on all platforms.
