“But I Do” by Issa Raye

Pop artist Issa Raye’s new song, “But I Do,” is a modern disco classic with hypnotizing beats, electric instrumentals, and synthesizers. The track is a surefire hit that will make fans of old-school disco music and the younger generation equally happy, as there is something for everyone to enjoy. “But I Do,” on top of it all, is an infectious pop song that will have you dancing, making it the perfect summer tune.

Issa’s vocals in “But I Do” are a true highlight–her smooth voice effortlessly navigates from low to soprano pitches. Her lively vocals are set against an infectious melody, which is a dynamic blend of vibrant synths and playful instrumentals. The song delves into the all-too-familiar cycle of an on-again, off-again relationship, capturing the bittersweet mix of attraction and toxicity. The repeated line, “I’m only human,” echoes the universal feeling of being drawn to something you know is wrong. Just as the lyrics convey this sentiment, the moving instrumental and catchy melody mirror the feeling of being hooked on something.

Issa Raye, a Los Angeles and Miami-based singer, is an up-and-coming artist to watch. Born in Colombia, Issa’s unique mix of differing cultures and music is flawlessly executed with her exceptional sound. “But I Do” perfectly captures her distinctive sound, serving as a stamp for Issa’s unique place in the disco/pop music scene.

“But I Do” is available on all major music streaming platforms, just in time for the summer. The accompanying music video, released on June 28th, is just as infectious and vibrant as the song itself.
