Jordan Raf is doing his damndest to not let the sun go down. The POW Recordings-signed singer drops blue sky-tinged vibes of passion on his latest single, the John War-produced “Better Now.” Raf is an Iranian-American, grew up in Dallas and San Diego, but now calls LA home. And for all the Don Juan bravado of “Better Now,” the debonair auteur wants to shatter mainstream tropes.
“This song is the sonic equivalent of me choke slamming the cultural Frankenstein concoction known as “One Dance,” he says. “A hedonistic anthem…It’s a summer jam before the nuclear winter.”
