Rising Chicago songstress Ravyn Lenae proves she's wise beyond her seventeen years with her new song "Alive," a warm, reflective slow burner. Driven by soaring harmonies and immersive instrumentation, "Alive" creates an ambience listeners can't help but get lost in. The song weaves elements of R&B, singer/songwriter and electronic together seamlessly, creating a hypnotic blend that is quintessentially Lenae's alone. 

“‘Alive’ stems from emotional growth and contentment,” Ravyn says of the song's inspiration. “Before writing the song, I was swimming in a pool of hurt, guilt and spiritual discomfort. Instead of drowning, I decided to embrace these feelings and express gratitude for the lessons learned. With this new-found sense of life, I am stronger and happier than ever.”

The uplifting track showcases Lenae's impeccable songwriting ability. Her vivid imagery and keen ear for detail shine through as she sings breezily about heartbreak, resilience, and rebirth. 

The bouncy production is supplied by Soulection's Monte Booker, one of Lenae's frequent collaborators. The duo proves their natural chemistry once again, as Booker's lush soundscape serves as the perfect backdrop for Lenae's staccato melodic lines that unfold into stunning layered harmonies. 

Listen to the scintillating track below, catch Ravyn Lenae at our No Ceilings show in Atlanta during this year's A3C Festival, and keep up with her on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
