Melbourne-based R&B artist/producer R.em.edy is getting ready to release her new single, Love Drunk. If you've ever been so hypnotised by someone that you've let your emotions get the better of you, then you'll relate to Love Drunk.
The track, which was entirely self-produced, brings R.em.edy's soaring vocals to the fore as she glides over hypnotic and sultry production. Love Drunk is also the first song that she's created from the perspective of her dark and more sensual alter ego, Nikki. While writing Love Drunk, R.em.edy dived into the world of character songwriting, which allowed her to access a heightened side of her personality. We're excited to be premiering the track right now!
Lady Gaga's memorable VMAs performance of Paparazzi inspired the track's imagery, which builds on the song's message of destroying yourself for the love of someone else. When infatuation clouds your thinking, things can go awry. Suddenly, someone that isn't good for you seem like the best decision you'll ever make.
Speaking about the track, and the introduction of her alter ego, Nikki, R.em.edy explains, "She represents a higher, more powerful and fiercer version of myself. She’s reckless, dangerous and knows what she wants." Love Drunk is R.em.edy's first release since recovering from a recent vocal injury, which caused a temporary hiatus. However, she's back and sounding better than ever.
Love Drunk follows on from Questions, R.em.edy's first release of 2022. Teaming up with Melbourne-based producer Balaram for the track, R.em.edy explores the dynamics of toxic relationships on Questions, and it's a mesmerising track that encapsulates why she was on our list of artists you need to watch in 2022.
You can check out Love Drunk above. If you don't always make the right decisions when it comes to love, then you'll feel comforted by Love Drunk. The song is a testament to R.em.edy's countless talents, and you'll have Love Drunk's hook on your mind long after the track's finished playing.
