Tar Ráe – “Too Bad” single

“You know I had to wake up sooner than later. And it’s only right I apologize for the way that I did you. I know it’s too late, but these things take a little bit of time to realize I wasn’t moving right. I ain’t even gonna lie, I took you for granted, for real. Never thought of how I made you feel. And now you’re moving on and it’s too bad it wasn’t me.” – lyrics

‘Too Bad’ tells a painful-to-bear story about a young woman who takes accountability for treating her ex-partner badly. Now, because of her misguided actions, her ex is with someone new and their budding relationship is going great. Even though it’s hard for her to see him happy, in a way she’s pleased he found someone who can treat him better than she did. It’s a bittersweet moment for sure, more bitter than sweet. With a heavy heart, she tells her ex-companion, “If I told you that I’m sorry, would it change a thing? I guess I’ll never know now, how much you’re happier without having me in your life. At least you’re satisfied and I’m just a stranger now.”

‘Too Bad’ contains a teary-eyed narrative, soft melodies, and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Liyah Katana, Elise Stein, and Ella Mai. The emotional tune possesses saturated drums and percussion-laden instrumentation flavored with an acoustic backdrop and contemporary R&B elements. Furthermore, “Too Bad” follows mildly on the heels of Tar Ráe’s “Insane” single, which has racked up over 80k streams on Spotify alone.

“Heard she’s falling right where I should’ve fell.”

“‘Too Bad’ is about admitting that you took someone important to you for granted and dealing with the regret you feel as a result.” – Tar Rae commented

Tar Ráe was born in Romford, Essex, and raised in Peckham, Southeast London. She grew up in a musical household listening to gospel, R&B, and afrobeats. It was inevitable that one day she would follow down a similar path and explore a music career. Taking inspiration from artists such as Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Brandy, Whitney Houston, and Rihanna, Tar Ráe wrote her first song at the age of 14 before deciding to pursue singing seriously two years later following a conversation with her father. Attending studio sessions in 2019, Tar Ráe began recording original music before sharing her debut single, “See You,” in 2021. Catching the eyes of many reputable songwriters and producers, the newcomer is ready to take it up a notch in 2023 with a catalog of new music.
