On “In The Kitchen,” Rapp hones in on a simple memory from a relationship — to convey how alone she feels. “I walk in the kitchen, my heart hits the floor,” she sings sweetly over gentle chords. “It’s you that I’m missing, just had a vision of us cooking dinner, and you’re holding me from behind.” Co-written by Reneé alongside Monsters & Strangerz (Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5), Tommy Brown (Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Blackpink), and Michael Pollack (Lizzo, Becky G, Justin Bieber), the song draws on personal moments of Reneé’s, creating an emotional and raw experience for her listeners, almost enduring the pain alongside her as she sings.

“In The Kitchen” is the follow up to Rapp’s major-label debut “Tattoos,” which has already amassed 3 million combined streams and growing. Throughout her career, Rapp has displayed an indelible skill for enthralling audiences with vibrant performances and genuine energy. Outside of music, she stars in the series from Mindy Kaling entitled The Sex Lives of College Girls, which premiered on ITV this April. It’s a role that calls for innate comedic timing and breathtaking dramatic prowess, both of which Rapp has in spades. That emotional rawness also informs “In The Kitchen,” a song that soars and devastates. With a full-length project due soon – Rapp is just getting started.

ABOUT RENEÉ RAPP:

Reneé Rapp knew was born to perform ever since she was a child. Even in her earliest memories, her love of music was always present. “I couldn’t sit still in the car unless there was music,” she says. “Otherwise, I would cry the entire time.” The North Carolina native began harnessing her natural creativity by writing and recording songs when she was just a teenager. Eventually, her career took off when she landed the coveted role of Regina George in the Tony-nominated Mean Girls musical on Broadway. Shortly after, she found widespread recognition and praise—from the likes of W, Harper’s Bazaar, and The Hollywood Report for her performance as “Leighton” on the HBO Max/ITV series “The Sex Lives of College Girls” written by Mindy Kaling. Now, more empowered than ever, Rapp turns her attention back to music, where sharing threadbare insecurities on “Tattoos” is just the beginning. “I was called ‘crazy’ a lot growing up because I didn’t know what was going on with me,” she says. “As I got older and started going to therapy, I reclaimed the word in a way that feels good to me.” In this song and in the rest of her music to come Rapp leans into a uniquely bold showcase of vulnerability to connect with her ever-growing fandom. Eager to continue to share her emotions with the world, Reneé has much more music on the way under her recent signing to Polydor Records.
