For Rajé Shwari‘s cult following from her Timbaland days, this might seem like a long overdue comeback, but to a brand new audience globally, this marks the day that a fresh new ingenue arrives on the international landscape ready to set the musical airwaves on fire and represent her culture to the fullest.

Check it out!

The song, “Get Your Life” is an innovative urban flavored dance number that kicks off with a driving dhol beat and sitar riff, quickly fusing with contemporary dance and pop while summoning cultures to collide and throw a worldwide party together.

The music video for “Get Your Life,” was shot by Paul Coy Allen (known for his work with Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Drake). It’s a colorful, eye catching visual packed with people of all backgrounds, Rajé’s one-of-a-kind style, and the most vibrant of colors including the hot pink “LIFE” size letters, which she dances in and out of. Rajé’s undeniable star quality translates through the screen with each and every shot. Talking about her new track, Rajé Shwari said,

“This song and video is something I’m so proud of, just because of everything that it represents. It’s a new sound, it has a message and it’s so much fun to listen to and watch; the colors, the unique faces, the dancers, it has a really great energy that I feel like includes everybody, and that’s what music is all about, isn’t it? It may just seem like a catchy song with the ‘La La Las’ in it, but anything that brings people together is always going to be my mission. There’s no better platform than music to send a bigger message, that we are all in this human experience together.”
