“‘Friend Like Me’ is about one-sided friendships. Often the person that checks up on others, is the one who rarely gets checked up on. I posted a video of me singing this chorus idea while making eggs on TikTok, and it blew up! Producers started hopping on the track and everyone started asking me for a full version. Two days later, I wrote and recorded the full track. This song and the response from everyone mean the world to me and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!” – Rachel Grae explained

The strength of Rachel Grae’s burgeoning fan base is evident, with “Friend Like Me” amassing over 21,000 pre-saves, 6000 TikTok creations, and 12M+ views all before its release.

Rachel Grae’s music is the equivalent of a page ripped out of a diary. A self-described oddball, Rachel has a way of tapping into the psychological, cerebral, and emotional, but it’s her powerhouse vocals that set her apart from her peers.

Rachel invokes the youthful energy of peers like Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, and Tate McRae through her songwriting. She has always been drawn to vulnerability and singing is her way of speaking to people. Also, music allows her to explore topics that are sometimes seen as intimidating or taboo.
