The featured artist Erin B professes his love, and assures his leading lady that he is for real. The story is about lasting love.
Rayl told Singersroom about the inspiration behind the track, “Summertime”. She explained that:
“As fall approaches, it’s the time to reminisce about the perfect summer romance and I wanted ‘Summertime’ to evoke those feelings of warmth and happiness. I think it is the perfect end of summer song. As for how the song came about, Erin and I were listening to guitar instrumentals during a session, and once we stumbled on the perfect one, the melody and lyrics just started to perfectly form. I was thinking about the kind of vibe I was going for in terms of easy on the ears and sweet and ‘Summertime’ is just that”.
