Following her brilliantly infectious singles ‘LIKE ME’ and ‘Tell Me What You Like,’ which received critical acclaim in Mundane Magazine, Seven Days, and LOCK Magazine, Pop/R&B artist Eva Rawlings returns with her empowering breakup anthem, ‘5 Steps.’

Inspired by an ex’s bad post-breakup behavior, ‘5 Steps’ showcases Eva’s passionate vocals set to a driving trap beat. Crafted with 11x platinum producer Ian Kimmel, the track delivers a catchy, danceable chorus while tapping into the bitter experience of seeing an ex move on.

Eva says of the track, “My idea was to write one of those counting down songs that went viral, but make it not corny. I liked the idea of writing a snarky song to your ex who got over you way too fast, spelling out what they must have done to be doing fine so quickly after the breakup. So many great producers and writers helped make this song what it is, and we finished it that day, so from the inception of the concept to it being mixed and mastered was less than 24 hours.”

Eva Rawlings’ songs paint a picture of how every woman should feel: confident and fearless. The empowering songwriter blends elements of R&B, pop, and hip-hop to create a sound akin to the likes of Qveen Herby, Ariana Grande, and EMELINE. Raised in Vermont and based in Boston, she’s performed stages from Higher Ground to The Burren.

A passionate social activist and feminist, Eva’s’ latest single, ‘LIKE ME,’ was created entirely by women, with streaming proceeds from the single pledged to U.S. abortion funds. She also organized and performed in a fundraiser show with other Berklee acts raising money for an organization to end gun violence. Eva continues to empower listeners with her latest single, ‘5 Steps,’ which is slated for release on Friday, September 23rd.
