about the album from Jorge: “Back when I was writing for URB I basical mixtape that would run on the site. I went to her apartment, picked up th there I just could not stop playing (“Dance All Night”) and from there cam Rachael as well. As time went by I heard more and more of her music album’s opener. From there I knew I had to put Rachael’s album togethe incredible music she has, but also wanting to really shout about how imp
