Raphael was born in New York and raised in Miami Beach, listening to ‘90s pop and Miami hip-hop. He calls his upcoming album, The Dark of MyMind, his journey through modern love set to sexy, moody trip-hop and electro-pop sounds that are at times ethereal and dreamy, and at other times flow over the listener with a wave of sexual urgency and romantic longing. The single is called “Boys Are Trouble.”
“It is a song about addiction, whether it is love, sex, or the human body,” explains the artist. “I often find that just when I think I’m in control of my emotions, a sexy guy comes along, carnality takes over and I fall to pieces.” “Boys Are Trouble” is now available on iTunes and Spotify, along with its brand new club remix by superstar DJ Joe Gauthreaux.
In the video, Raphael cast male models as boxers. This is a current trend in New York City - underground male model fight clubs, which sounds incredibly horny. Only in New York. You can see the video here:
