RaVaughn falls for her BFF in the video for “Best Friend,” but he doesn’t know it. The singer-songwriter, who is signed to Ne-Yo’s Compound University/Columbia Records, soaks in a swimming pool filled with rose petals while reflecting on their relationship. They share tears, laughs, and hugs, but he doesn’t realize that she’s in love with him.
“I just feel like it’s so relatable to everybody,” RaVaughn told Rap-Up.com of the song, which she co-wrote with her sister. “It’s just having that best friend where you fall in love with them and they don’t know it, so you have to be that best friend and coach them through whatever they’re asking you. The song is all about getting that courage to finally let that person know, ‘I’m not your f’ing best friend.'”
Her upcoming debut features production from Ne-Yo, The-Dream, Babyface, Eric Hudson, and Jerry Wonda. She’s also collaborated with Wale (“Better Be Good”), Fabolous (“I’m So Fu**ed Up”), Marsha Ambrosius, John Legend, and Miguel (“747″).
