Julia Raye Shares New Single ‘Expectations’

Rising New York-based singer & songwriter Julia Raye shares her brand new single Expectations, an alluring R&B-pop gem. 
Produced by Bret “Epic” Mazur (Crazy Town, Prince, Black Eyed Peas), Expectations finds the talented artist beautifully showcasing her impressive vocal range and dynamic delivery over upbeat, feel-good melodies. A song about the pressure felt from others and oneself while in a relationship, and trying to figure out what one's expectations are, this gem combines Raye's operatic vocals with diaristic storytelling and catchy pop melodies, carving out a sound all of her own. I am also very fond of the killer bass, dreamy harmonies, lush brass elements and upbeat drum patterns that come together to create an overall warm, feel-good atmosphere.



Speaking about the song, Julia Raye said,
I wrote ‘Expectations’ when I was feeling torn with the relationship I was in at the time. I kept feeling so much pressure from both myself and the people around me. This song is my inner monologue as I try to figure out what my expectations are for us while navigating this relationship.
