July, debuting songs from her self-titled EP, set to release this Tuesday, June 26. We got a sneak peek at the
five tracks on her new EP and we’re officially obsessed with this talented
first track, “Mean Girls,” may have a soft and quiet beat, but Rachel’s voice
remains strong and powerful throughout. It tells the story of all those who

encourages every girl being bullied out there to stand up for themselves and
not let the meanies get to you anymore.
With You” (ft. Mann) is more of an upbeat song with a funky beat. Rachel’s
flawless voice carries a fun melody (“Don’t turn your back on the sound, ‘cause

A Song Can Do” is a simple jam with a steady beat, perfect for hearing the
incredible accuracy with which Rachel smoothly hits her notes. This track is
all about the power of music and how songs can help us escape from our

mad talent. And her simple, relatable tunes are ones you don’t want to miss!
