Without giving too much away, Raquel Lily’s “Ghost” is one of those breakup songs with substance. The Philippines-born, Atlanta-residing Lily paints a picture of a person who’s dealing with the duality of love and is questioning whether or not it truly exists. The queer soul-infused pop singer’s vocals call out from the song as if to say “I’m not sure if it exists, but I’m still willing to give it a try.” One of the songs off Lily’s coming-of-age album Fixations (due out March 11) delves into all of the feelings of a past relationship while eventually offering a bit of closure at the end of things. They’re masterfully sung and you feel the emotions coursing through Lily’s every wond.
The visuals find a woman (played by Annicka Dolonius) searching for someone (played by Alex Medina) she had something with, only to see that they left to find their own true happiness. Finding out that that happiness may not involve her, the woman then seeks out to find what she really wants out of life and out of love. It’s a powerful song with incredible visuals, point blank. I can’t say too much about the visuals (or their twists and turns) without giving everything away. So I’ll say this: if you’re in the mood for some closure-bringing music with soul, check out “Ghost” below and support dope music in all its forms.
