Goapele extends the reach of her fan favorite single, “$ecret,” by teaming up with Bay Area rapper Rexx Life Raj on a new remix.
“$ecret” is an intoxicating gem with melodies that seep deep into your soul, and Rexx Life Raj’s skillful wordplay makes for a nice compliment.
“$ecret” appears on Goapele’s new project, Dreamseeker, released via EMPIRE / SKYBLAZE. The set, which follows 2014’s Strong As Glass, peaked in the Top 10 of iTunes Top R&B/Soul Chart.
In 2016, Goapele made a conscious decision to return to her roots while composing the music that would be ‘Dreamseeker.’
“I felt like it was time to reconnect with my original self,” she affirms. “I didn’t want to overthink anything. It’s about being boundless and getting back to that soul, R&B, funk, and even some hip-hop. I took pieces of me and let them be more raw. As an independent artist these days, there are no rules. That’s comforting because it’s how I started.”
