Bay area singer-songwriter Rayana Jay and Los Angeles rapper DUCKWRTH unite northern and southern California in their groovy collaboration “Love Me Like.” Creating stunning R&B tunes in her Bed-Stuy studio, Jay channels her emotional experiences into her lyrically powerful songs. She writes her music as one would write a love letter, aimed to her less mature self. Her dynamic songs recount her struggles throughout relationships and as a female in the extremely competitive music industry.
Jay’s honesty is paired with DUCKWRTH’s lyrical ingenuity to create the soulful and sensual “Love Me Like,” the title-track for Jay’s upcoming EP set to release on March 22. The song narrates both sides of a fleeting love. Jay sings on the brevity of the encounter and wanting to feel loved entirely, regardless of how long she gets with her partner. DUCKWRTH speaks of a sexual encounter during the “one night in [his partner’s] town.” These two viewpoints reflect that of a traveling musician, who desires a love, even just for a night.
