Review: "It Isn't True" - Rejhan

Have you ever felt like your drifting away from your partner? Where the feelings just aren't there anymore, and you don’t know how to tell them? You feel bad because you don’t want to hurt them, but you can’t continue to lie. This puts you in a tough position because of the responsibilities that come with it. Rejhan’s single, “It Isn’t True” is about those struggling with leaving someone and telling the other person things they’d want to hear so you don't hurt their feelings. They’ll feel heartbroken after the news which will make you feel horrible, but you can’t continue to lead them on. In the end, it’s better to be honest instead of faking it because of the problems it can cause.

Rejhan starts the song off with a gentle and soft tempo with his deep vocals. The control in his voice creates a mellow sensation which gives off a soulful vibe. He delivers a smooth sound element that enhances the message overall. Despite the lyrics being about the downsides of a struggling relationship, Rejhan still carries out with his passionate vocals. The track is heartfelt, and Rejhan sounds torn through his lyrics which will make the listener feel sympathetic. The bridge takes a turn with the beat along with Rejhan’s additional ad libs leading back to the chorus. The sudden change will give you goosebumps because of how powerful he showcases his vocals and emotions.

Rejhan grew up playing the piano, guitar, along with singing when he was 4-5 years old. He can sing in Albanian, Bosnian, English, and Swedish with his roots being in Kosovo and Bosnia. After making a big success in Sweden’s Got Talent in 2021 where he made it to the finals, Rejhan debuted two years later with his single, “Haunted” as an artist in the Swedish Melodifestivalen. The song is the first single from his upcoming album following with “It Isn’t True.” He has parallels to Lewis Capaldi and Ed Sheeran for conveying emotions through his music. Some of his inspirations are Bruno Mars, Daniel Caesar, and Frank Ocean. He has found a soulful tone in his voice at just 16 years old! Make sure to check Rejhan out and look forward to his upcoming debut album!
