Reneé Rapp Drops Single “Talk Too Much” From Her Upcoming Debut Album
Reneé Rapp is a master of self-sabotage in her latest single, “Talk Too Much,” featured on her upcoming debut album, Snow Angel, set to release on August 18. Teaming up with producer Alexander 23, who has racked up credits on songs with the likes of Tate McRae and Olivia Rodrigo, Rapp explores the art of talking herself out of relationships using extreme hypotheticals. With catchy lyrics like “If I see a blue car today, we’ll probably have to break up,” she playfully navigates the challenges of love. Earlier this week, Rapp also revealed her departure from the show The Sex Lives of College Girls, expressing gratitude for the life-changing experience, love for her character Leighton, and ultimately, her readiness to move forward. Reneé Rapp has been open about the emotional intensity and inclination she feels toward her music, admitting to being more territorial and invested in her songs than acting. Suppose her EP, Everything To Everyone, and countless sold-out shows are any indicator of her value as a musical artist. In that case, we trust Reneé will dominate, despite the tumultuousness of the music industry that she has bravely acknowledged.
