riah Wants to Find Her Happily Ever After In New Song “Dragon”


Cape Verdean-American singer-songwriter, riah, is known for her unique sound. While each song highlights one of her many talents, her vocal agility and lyrical storytelling shine, connecting her songs under one common theme. Her latest release, “Dragon”, focuses on the honeymoon phase of a relationship. 

“Dragon” is a test of trust between two friends. Through lush harmonies and smooth piano, riah wonders if she will ever grow close enough to have a romantic relationship with someone she admires. Lyrics such as, “How high can we fly on this dragon? / Can we fly on this dragon? / Tell me all your secrets and I’ll keep them in our hideaway / Closing up the chapter and I’ll see you on another day” show riah’s tendencies to fantasize about this relationship, yet she hopes for something more in real life. 

Sharing more about “Dragon”, riah comments:

“Dragon is the star song off my debut EP. It was written about the feeling of fantasy created in your head after meeting someone for the first time and becoming completely infatuated with the idea of loving them. It’s sweet and sensual, catchy, and brings you to a dreamy, cloud-filled sonic space.”
