Featuring Rae Witte

Full disclosure: today's episode is sad, but beautifully so. With writer, social media editor, and radio dj Rae Witte at the table we introduce a round of weighty songs powered by lost love, sacrifice, self-pity, and redemption.

Rae brings in a smooth, utterly sinister break up ballad by singer, songwriter, and producer Chaisley Lussier. We break down "Evergreen," Yebba's devastating and yet somehow hopeful ode to grief.

Young Brooklyn-based lyricist Rosehardt battles through self-doubt and depression on his powerful single "Bad Song," while up-and-coming hip-hop artist Ophelia Cache stakes claim to her due fortune on the no bullshit release "Money."
