Joel Baker – “Rupi Kaur”

“Well, she said, ‘Call me’. I said, ‘Why?’. She replied, ‘In the morning’. ‘Never Mind’. And usually, I’d leave it there. But I’ve been tryna grow up. So I dialed her hoping she wouldn’t pick the phone up. She said, ‘Thanks for calling and the reason is I just wanted you to know that you’re a real piece of sh*t’. All I can say is sorry, I never used to be this way. But if it makes you feel better, you’re not the first to file a complaint.” – lyrics

The George Baxter-directed video finds Joel Baker playing his guitar and performing his song in various locations between Nottingham and London. Also, “Rupi Kaur” contains a relatable storyline, heartfelt vocals, and guitar-driven instrumentation perfumed with a nostalgic scent.

“One particularly dull day I got a drunk text and then a phone call from a girl who wanted to make sure I knew I was a d***. The song is called ‘Rupi Kaur’ because the girl was the type to post Rupi quotes on Instagram. Fresh flowers from Columbia Rd. Oat Milk everything. Edgy and authentic gadgets from Urban Outfitters. Also, Insta Story after Insta Story of fortune cookie, philosophy. For the record, I love ‘Rupi Kaur’. In fact, it was the girl’s ‘Rupi Kaur reading heart’ that I was so enamored by, but it didn’t work out.” – Joel Baker
