We don’t think that anyone can deny that Renee Rapp is uber talented. She’s so uber talented and inspirational that sometimes we may shed a few tears over her music. It’s because in a way, she speaks to so many with the vulnerability that comes across in her music.
Her album, Snow Angel, is amazing. The story behind her song of the same name, is absolutely devastating.
While on Jay Shetty’s On Purpose podcast, the singer discussed the meaning behind the song. In 2022, the singer was out with friends (who didn’t look out for her) and the singer ended up being drugged and hurt.
This makes us both sad and angry. Friends should always be there for friends and looking out for each other.
“I really let my judgment go when it came to the people that were around me,” Renee said looking back on the time. “We were all out, and it was just situation after situation where they were just not trustworthy, and then the next thing you knew, I was face up, laying down in a bathroom stall in a hotel bar, just waking up at 5 in the morning, completely alone.”
“I had blood on my pants, and I was just so caught off guard…I was completely alone in a bathroom stall and I looked down at my phone and it was 5 in the morning, and I was like, ‘What happened?!’ I had missed two texts from two people I was with from 10 p.m. the night before,” she continued.
“I was drugged and I had just been missing for seven hours,” Renee said. We’re shocked that she was missing for that long and her friends weren’t searching that hotel up and down. We do get that people are grown and make grown up decisions, but unless a friend tells us where they are going on a night out, we’re searching everywhere until we found them.
She finished off by saying, “I stopped being friends with those people and stopped doing as much partying as I was doing. I told my parents, told some of my friends. I explained it in a very matter-of-fact way, and they were all very concerned and I didn’t even understand what was happening.”
The very personal moment led to her writing her song Snow Angel along with her co-writer, Alexander 23.
