Shards of happiness drools over this soulful, love ballad. Raës’ tender voice breezes across the guitar and finger snap that runs across the Reynolds The Gentleman produced song. ‘Not Like You’ is a toast to finding and feeling loved. It a song about a new beginning – shirking off the pain and hurt of past relationships.
”Searching for someone to give me reason/Reason to believe that I’m worth it”, Raës lays bare her desire on the opening verse of the song. On the second verse, her desire is fulfilled: ”So glad I found somebody now/Who treats me better”. The simplicity of the record, in terms of both production and delivery – Raës does not inflate the song with harmonies- makes it a pleasant listen.
