Have our dreams been answered? Is Reneé Rapp the angel of our dreams? The answer is yes! Reneé is our Snow Angel ❄️ and has come to bless us with the Deluxe version of her newest album. Containing all the original favorites like ‘Talk Too Much’ and ‘Pretty Girls,’ the deluxe drop surprises us with three new songs and a feature with the beautiful Coco Jones.
We’ve been playing this album on repeat since it came out, so join us as we obsess over each new track, the lyrics, and what they mean to us.
Cleanup on aisle four! Reneé compares her messy imperfections to the aisle in a grocery store. Life and the relationships that come with it can get messy and complicated, like that spill in the juice aisle. If there’s any artist that embraces their imperfections, it’s Reneé. That’s why we love her! This song is relatable in the most honest and raw ways.
“Lovin’ me gets messy,” she sings, attempting to scare away any potential lover. We’ve all been there, but it’s better to fully accept the things we don’t love about ourselves. After all, those may be the things others like the most about us! “None of them will ever forget me,” Reneé admits.
This song is truly stunning, and we have no notes. From the lyrics to the symbolism and the vocals, it may be our favorite track from the deluxe album. The term ‘I Do’ refers to the answer to the question that we always ask ourselves: do you love me like I love you? For Reneé in this song, the answer is no. However, the term also refers to a potential matrimonial pact. Her potential partner does not reciprocate the ‘I Do’ and, in fact, goes on to say it to someone else under a white veil 👰. Damn, that one hurt Reneé.
We’re holding our breath because this song has us in a complete and utter chokehold! We simply don’t care if we can’t breathe. “Follow you like lamb to the slaughter,” Reneé sings. We’ve all been in a relationship that we try to escape, but something seems to hold us back. “On and on and on we go,” Reneé sings. The cycle of being stuck in something that is only holding you back makes you feel like you’re drowning, but also like you need to continue swimming 💦 with them to survive. Reneé captured this quite complicated concept within ‘Swim’ perfectly, and for that, we thank her.
‘Tummy Hurts’ feat. Coco Jones
This is the collab of our literal dreams! 😍 That opening line will get us every time…the genius that is Reneé Rapp. When Coco’s angelic voice entered the chat, we simply died and were resurrected. “‘Cause God knows that sinner’s a psycho/Lied to my face, it’s your hobby/Boy, you fine as hell for a psycho,” she sings, and we’ve never related to anything more.
Our favorite part of the song is Coco’s subtle, yet not so subtle, stab at #MeToo. “That’s just boys being boys,” Coco sings about boys not being able to own up to their mistakes. Intentional or not, the line is incredibly powerful and makes us fall in love with Reneé and Coco even more!
Each song on the Deluxe album is perfect in its own way, and now we have four more reasons to love Reneé! Because we just want to see Renee in every single piece of media we consume, we’re counting down the days to the Mean Girls movie. Who’s with us!?
