Rafaela Bares All With Brand New Pop Belter, ‘Loved By You’

Picture this: Rafaela was sitting on the sofa with her husband one Saturday morning, having coffee and just chatting. Suddenly she’s overwhelmed by deep emotion and has to write it down – the result is her new single, ‘Loved By You’.

The song, and accompanying music video, tell the story of that deep and all-consuming love experienced when you know you’ve found your special someone. Rafaela reveals it all in her lyrics:

“I just loved you From that first time You laid eyes on me

No one else makes me feel like You do No one else Makes me feel like you do

No one else No one else Makes me feel love But you only you”

The music video for ‘Loved By You’ opens with Rafaela gazing out on the ocean, contemplative. This is interspersed with clips of her singing on a soundstage, as well as clips of a piano playing.

The song draws much from the classic 80s pop ballads, but adds a more contemporary pop sound, including soaring guitars, and a moving backing vocal. While it’s not strictly a Christmas song, ‘it ‘Loved By You’ definitely taps into the cosy vibes we all crave this time of year.

Rafaela Cabreja started out as a tv producer and reporter, but is now carving her own path through music. Originally from Dominican Republic, she now makes her home in Miami, Florida.

‘Loved By You’ is out now and can be streamed and downloaded here. Watch the video below. You can find out more about Rafaela and her music online on Facebook, Instagram, Spotify, and Apple Music.
