Riding the wave of success of her previously released single “MESSY,” the Indian and Sri Lankan-American pop mistress Rhea Raj has released a relentless new track titled “HUSH,” giving her fans a little piece of her upcoming debut album.

As a teenager, Rhea Raj gained mainstream attention through online videos she made, which caught the attention of major media outlets like MTV and artists such as Bebe Rexha. Incorporating her South Asian roots into her sound, she perfectly balances Indian beats with American pop. She toplined several major EDM label records, having over 40 releases with DJs and producers around the world. This experience has allowed her to collaborate with top artists in the industry and further broaden her musical horizons. However, Rhea is an independent artist, self-releasing tracks under her own label, Misschief Records, showcasing her determination and entrepreneurial spirit. By maintaining full creative control, she is able to stay true to her vision and produce authentic music. She’s ready to take her rightful place as the next pop idol. 

“HUSH” is a perfect display of the Western and Eastern clash Rhea Raj offers in her music. Rhea’s vocals are powerful and emotive, adding depth and vulnerability to the track. The song’s chorus is bold over her signature, punchy pop beat, and Rhea’s harmony still pierces through, making the song almost as seductive as its message. Taking heavy inspiration from Y2K idols such as Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, and Fergie, she has managed to create a track that captures the spirit of 90s pop music. The lyrics do a great job conveying a sense of temptation and wonder, delving deep into themes of desire and fascination. The verses paint a picture of a secret affair where both parties know they shouldn’t but can’t resist the pull. “HUSH” is an amazing track charged with raw emotions. Rhea’s is offering a trip into the forbidden land of passion, one you can’t afford to miss.

Explaining the creative process behind “HUSH,” Rhea Raj said, “I wrote and recorded ‘HUSH’ in a makeshift studio set up in the middle of an Airbnb kitchen at 3 am, and that’s exactly how I want people to feel when they experience this song. It’s messy, glittery, and unapologetic, like a night out where you meet someone new on the dance floor and immediately fall in love. It really sets the tone for my next project, ‘HUNTER,’ with empowering lyrics and bold production choices.”

Rhea has coined the title “the brown Paris Hilton, and she certainly has the style and confidence to match. She is determined to make a name for herself in the music industry, and she is not going to let anything stand in her way. Fans can expect more great music from the modern-day it girl as she continues to release singles and work on her debut album.
