RACELLA

RACELLA is a singer-songwriter, composer, and music producer based in Los Angeles. She was born in the small town of Delano, California and was raised in a Filipino Household. Upon receiving her degree from California State Univerity, Bakersfield, she moved to LA to pursue her passion for singing and songwriting. She found herself working with DJ Mormile, Fakework Management (Mike Will Made it, Rae Sremmurd, S1, Swiff D, and YG).

In 2015, Racella got married to her best friend, Cesar. Unfortunately, a few weeks later he got into a catastrophic car accident, which caused him to undergo heart and spinal surgery. He only had a 10% chance of living. The thought of leaving him alone in the hospital was unbearable. She was determined to stay with him until he was ready to go home with her. Instead of succumbing to fear and doubt, she used all her energy on prayer and writing music on the phases and waves they experienced together. She wrote, “Can’t Do This On My Own (CDTOMO)” at the edge of Cesar’s hospital bed. That’s where the WAVES EP was created.

“T’d Up” will feature on Rae Sremmurd’s (Mississippi-bred brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi) upcoming third full-length,SR3MM. Made with their longtime producer Mike WiLL Made-It, SR3MM arrives as the follow-up to SremmLife 2—a 2016 album featuring the multi-platinum No. 1 hit “Black Beatles” (ft. Gucci Mane). SremmLife 2 drew acclaim from the likes of the New York Times, who noted that “the quieter innovation on this album is how, thanks to the more-meditative production, SremmLife 2is at times a commentary on and an updating of decades of Southern club rap.”

Released in 2015, Rae Sremmurd’s first full-length SremmLife debuted at the top of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Rap Albums charts, in addition to cracking the Top 5 on the Top 200 Albums chart its first week. SremmLife also scored Rae Sremmurd five platinum-selling singles, including “No Flex Zone” and “No Type.”

Last August, Rae Sremmurd delivered “Perplexing Pegasus” and its accompanying video. The song was named a Best New Track by Pitchfork, who hailed the duo as “a two-man circus celebrating carefree living to the fullest, back-flipping through verses.”
