Rory releases an appealing R&B single, entitled, “Not Me,” with RAAHiiM and Shantel May

Rory (formerly of the Joe Budden Podcast) is the co-host of one of the most popular podcasts in the world, New Rory & MAL, with millions of listeners per month. Not too long ago, he released an appealing R&B single, entitled, “Not Me,” with RAAHiiM and Shantel May.

Rory – “Not Me” single feat. RAAHiiM & Shantel May

“Know all my flaws but you still love me. I bet my demons make it hard to trust me. Knowing at times it just might get ugly. Knowing my scars that cause the problems we fought. All my exes wanna be Beyoncé, ‘Crazy in Love’ ‘til the love she’s on it. Telling me ‘bout how you feel through text, that ain’t no way for us to reconnect.” – lyrics

‘Not Me’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young guy who doesn’t want to fall in love with a naughty woman who has an attitude. Apparently, she’s a baddie who wants someone to fall in love with her. However, that someone isn’t him. Later, she tells him, “Play your cards right and I might let you take me out. I will never let you take me for granted. I’ll never let you make me feel average. Pu$$y runs the world, and you’re at a track meet.”

‘Not Me’ contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with music lovers. The likable tune possesses glitchy, left-soul instrumentation flavored with contemporary R&B and neo-soul elements. Furthermore, “Not Me” follows hot on the heels of Rory’s debut single, “I WANT YOU BUT YOU’LL NEVER KNOW….”

“All she wanna be is Cinderella.”

“Don’t compare me to your ex. We both know that’s disrespectful. Second, you shouldn’t speak about Beyoncé, you’ll never be J. F*** what you’re gon’ say, ‘bout her ‘bout me, ‘bout we, ‘bout us.” – lyrics

Rory spent the past three years carefully curating his debut project. To do so, he hand-selected, wrote, and produced alongside artists who he has supported on his successful podcasts. The project serves as a full circle moment. Rory’s involvement with Avant Garden and management of Emotional Oranges made the partnership with Avant Garden a natural fit.
