“Changes in my life, I blame on you,” Riovaz begins the song over organ chords, before a frenetic house-inspired beat kicks in. “I can’t complain, girl. It feels better now.” Fraught with difficult emotions and propulsive beats, the untamable track clearly shows Riovaz with a lot on his mind.

Anticipation for the track has been growing in recent weeks with a snippet being in the top 1% of video growth across TikTok. It continues his success on the platform where he has racked up nearly nine million views and more than 1.3M likes.

“the Rake (can’t complain)” follows the moody “Waiting Alone,” which dropped earlier this summer. He also recently began his fall tour, Riorave: Disturb the Norm II Tour, where he will treat fans to unique live takes on his viral sensations like “Tantrum (Pace Yourself),” the skaiwater-assisted “Hypnotized,” “U Neva,” “Can’t Keep Myself Intact,” and more.

It’s already been an exciting year for the up-and-comer. He kicked off his first headlining, sold out, RIORAVE tour and performed to wild crowds in Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Orlando, Atlanta, and New York before finishing up in Chicago. He also went overseas for three additional shows and performed at Pharrell Williams’ Something In The Water.
