Good Morning London - Single by Raph Solo

Raph Solo’s new music video, “Good Morning London”, is a love letter to the city he calls home. He wrote the song while walking down the streets of London, after a fight with his boyfriend that proved to be the final straw. He was heartbroken about his relationship but was inspired by a sense of finally finding his way ‘home’ and waking up to the importance of being true to his ‘self'.

The music video is packed with lots of symbolism. Raph baring his body in the video is symbolic to his baring his soul as an artist. The bruised eye is symbolic of the price he paid after losing himself in a bad relationship.

Raph Solo’s “Good Morning London,” the second single off of his new album, THE ANONYMOUS ICON, is a love letter to the city he calls home. “The song is about being yourself, no matter what they say,” says Solo. “

With a hit dance record under his belt, it’s intuitive that Solo never stops moving—not even to write a tender pop ballad. “I remember writing the song on the street, walking from my ex’s flat to my friend’s flat. My ex and I were living together at the time, and things had gotten so bad that I called up a friend to ask if I could stay over for a few nights until I found a new place to stay.”

Solo credits “Good Morning London” as one of the quickest songs he’s ever written in his career as a songwriter, while walking down the streets of London, no less. Nonchalantly, he says, “I wrote it in three minutes.”

“Often we lose ourselves in relationships, and we end up saying ‘yes’ to please our partners because we love them, when really we want to say ‘no’,” Solo explains. “And sweetness gets taken for weakness, and the fairytale turns into a nightmare.”

“We should always remember to love and honor ourselves enough to stay true to who we are in relationships, romantic or otherwise.” The bruised eye, he says, is symbolic of the price he had to pay to learn that lesson the hard way.
