‘Girls Like You’ contains an endearing narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and catchy melodies that are sure to pull on your heartstring. Also, the likable tune contains vibrant instrumentation flavored with a contemporary pop aroma. Furthermore, “Girls Like You” highlights the positivity that Rak-Su is known for spreading throughout their music.

“Everyone’s been having a hard time recently and so we wanted our first song back to be one to make people smile. The message of girls like you is that you’re one of a kind, one in eight billion so regardless of what that looks like, believe in your sauce and love yourself!” – Rak-su agreed
Celina Sharma’s effortless vocals compliment the song in such a way that you would be mistaken for thinking she was a new addition to the group.

“What’s the Rak-Su Vibe? Positive energy. We’re independent and free to just make the music we love and have fun too. And that’s the vibe we want to pass on and the feeling we want to give people. Freedom, positive energy, and fun.” – Rak-Su stated
Rak-Su has previously toured with the likes of Little Mix & Olly Murs. Also, they have performed at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball and sold out an independent UK Tour in 2019.
