Raury "Like a Star" (prod. by Donnie Trumpet)
Singer/rapper Raury is star-gazing but solemn on his latest single, a collaboration with Social Experiment producer/tootler Donnie Trumpet called "Like a Star."

The arrangement mixes a velvet swirl of synths with the aforementioned brassy sounds of Donnie Trumpet. Above this, Raury lays out the impasse between himself and an Atlanta escapee.

The song goes from a young-and-in-love scenario towards these now apparently emoji-less days in L.A. Oddly, Raury is seemingly angling towards a shame game with the end reveal that the woman in question is now a stripper, leaving a bitter taste affixed to the music's sweet sound.
