Intimate, soulful 80’s inspired pop with hints of sade, bolstered by the unmissable bass of dev hynes – insatiable pop music that’ll ring true for carly rae Jepsen and blood orange fans.

After having laid down the basic tracks and writing the songs, she would later invite collaborators-Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), LA production duo Sam Griesemer and Jerome Potter of DJDS, Spanish electronic producer Pional-but the resulting project remains a showcase of Rodriguez' skill both as a lyricist and a producer, though she is wont to admit it. With ‘Us’, Rodriguez wanted to facilitate a more equal exchange of energy between herself and her listeners, to create a "community." "It's not just love songs. It's about different experiences of the heart," she says. "I want it to be like a mirror, and [the audience] sees a little bit of themselves in every song." “Considerably brighter, both thematically and tonally, than its predecessor, the album ascertains the guileless exhilaration of love.”- slant magazine
