Raquel shares powerful message in new single “Angel” ft. Kofi
Raquel (@raquelllkhan), a rising star hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, just released her debut single, “Angel,” featuring Kofi (@jmgkofi) on September 1st, 2023. The singer is making her mark on the music scene with her emotive sound and powerful storytelling.
Her debut single, “Angel,” tells a poignant story of a person finding the strength to leave a relationship that no longer serves them. It explores the complexities of being someone’s “angel” while realizing that it’s time to move on.
“It’s the portrayal of when you’re nothing but an angel to the person you’re with, but they didn’t always appreciate how good you treated them,” Raquel says. “After you leave because of their actions, they portray you as the bad guy. You have to remind them that no, you’re not the ‘bad guy,’ but you’re not ‘their angel’ anymore.”
“You feel sorry for how their love for you encompasses their soul, and without you now they feel empty; but, you remind them that you told them before that one day you’d leave if they didn’t change their ways, and now leaving them brought out the savage side in you that they may have deserved all along,” she continues.
The message of the song is evident throughout the single. It’s a track that resonates with many, which is the essence of Raquel’s goal through making music. Describing her sound in her own words, Raquel explains that she aims to create music that not only makes you want to move and dance but also evokes powerful emotions.
“Whether it’s empowerment, melancholy, or euphoria — my goal is to make my listeners feel something unique each time,” she shares. Her music is characterized by wavering tones, fluctuating vocal ranges, and emotive rifts, creating a mesmerizing experience for her audience.
Raquel’s sources of inspiration are as diverse as her music. She’s inspired by songs filled with passion and emotion. Nature also plays a pivotal role in her creative process, with plans to incorporate the sounds of nature and references to celestial elements in her music. She believes in the power of melancholic moments as they often lead to her most prolific songwriting.
Raquel’s music career is just beginning, and she has ambitious goals for the future. She envisions releasing her first album in 2024, collaborating with various artists, composing musical scores for movies, and performing live for audiences.
“I want listeners to feel like they resonate with the venerability I hope to convey in my upcoming songs, and that it’s never too late to pursue your dreams!” she says.

How did you land such prominent hip-hop clients? I landed my clients by building my relationships with people. As well, through networking within the entertainment industry. When you’re transparent with your intentions, opportunities present themselves.
What made you get into fashion? I got into fashion through my grandmother. She had a sewing machine and would create my Halloween costumes when I was a child. Her creative influence inspired me immensely. Once I unearthed my vast zeal for fashion I realized her influence carried me through my adulthood.
How was it working with the legend FatMan Scoop? Working with Fatman Scoop was an amazing experience. Fatman scoop is an icon that I watched in my youth. It made me reflect on my childhood. It was a full circle moment for me to dress someone that created roots within the hip-hop community.
