Emerging R&B artist Grace Sorensen, who is just 19 years of age, has unveiled her stunning new single, "PRETTY BOY". The Austin, Texas, native only made her music debut two years ago but it's been an upward trajectory ever since with nothing but high-quality releases that have made it very clear that she is the real deal with a bright future ahead. “PRETTY BOY” is another sublime entry into her growing discography and arrives alongside equally impressive visuals directed by Daniel Castillo.
An incredibly memorable track with endless replay value, “PRETTY BOY” stands out immediately after the first listen with its soothing downtempo production by BLK ODYSSY and Grace’s gorgeous vocals, sticky melodies and candid lyrics. Speaking further on the release, Grace says, “‘PRETTY BOY’ was written out of disappointment of my taste in men and giving too many chances to the same type of boys and expecting different treatment.”
The track is lifted from the rising artist’s debut EP, WHAT I NEVER TOLD YOU, which is out now. “From relationships I’ve tried, the hardest lesson has been learning to be confrontational”, says Grace. “I would often spare my own desire for justice to maintain peace, and that regret turned into the fuel for my project. Each song was written from a reminiscent point of view – analysing the reality of who I experienced and understanding that my anger/disappointment was valid. Since I realised this validity too late to fight for myself, I intended for these songs to be heard by specific people as poetic justice – and in my own way, tell them what I never told them.”
Getting stronger and more impressive with each release, it’s clear Grace Sorensen is an artist to watch out for, and “PRETTY BOY” will surely continue her rise in the R&B scene. It will be exciting to see what else she has in store for the rest of 2022.
“PRETTY BOY” is out now on all platforms.
