Receiving support from international radio stations, programs and brands such as Natan (Belgium), McDonalds (Switzerland), Shakeaway (UK) and Helly Hansen (Norway), Raquel is making a clear statement that she means business in the industry. A compilation of Raquel’s most unique and charismatic songs, this album has a profound meaning. In it, Raquel is owning her power, celebrating the beauty of not only giving life to the child but giving light to herself, her strength, and her music goals.
Powerful and commanding, Raquel shows that she will continue to rise through all challenges as she moves through pregnancy and toward becoming a mom for the second time. The title of the album speaks to women’s power to transcend the status quo. Time and again, women rise to the occasion proving to themselves and the world that the impossible is possible, and their dreams are alive, and we are achieving them.
Speaking about leading single “Love Got Me Sick”, Raquel adds, “It’s about the complexities we all face around love, the darker side of it. I have loved and lost. I have loved and changed. I have loved so thoroughly I could no longer tell where I stopped, and it began. I’ve had passion used as a weapon against me, a tool for manipulation I was too blind to see.
I have felt mad, passionate, love and love as comfortable as a king-size bed. I have loved so hard it hurt, and I’ve faked a more profound love than I felt. I’ve withheld love and had love withheld from me. I have run from love, feared my passion and denied truly seeing love. I am no stranger to love. Yet, I have experienced and understand many sides of it – the good and the bad – and am no longer blind to its powerful effects on one’s existence. Love is all at once; terrifying and magical, it’s one thing in this world that will never be portrayed by words alone, for its feeling lives in every pocket of our mind, body and soul. Love is powerful.”
