It's been a whopping eight years since Raven-Symoné released her last album, Raven-Symoné. During her Disney days, she sang songs for That's So Raven, The Cheetah Girls, and Disney Channel Circle of Stars, and we've all been waiting for new music to drop. On Saturday (May 21), we got our wish.
Symoné released two surprise tracks on SoundCloud, both highlighting her strong, soulful voice we've missed so much.
"Cruise Control" is the more fast-paced of the two, filled with more car and driving puns than you knew existed. Plus, there are some, ahem, interesting sounds towards the end, which make more sense after seeing Symoné wrote that the song was "filled with ambient sounds and undertones of sexual frustration."
"Sarafina" gives off haunting ballad vibes, highlighting Symoné's deep voice. She described the song on SoundCloud as: "Eerie sounds of melodic, fantasy vocals describing a world that can only be named Sarafina..." Tbh, I could see it fitting in nicely in a YA dystopian film.
