Raw

Songfacts®:

  • The bold and frank title track of Sigrid's Raw EP finds the Norwegian singer at her most self-assured as she refuses to apologize for being true to herself.

    No, I could never fake it
    Like players always playing,
    Arrest me if I hurt you
    But no apologies for being me


    Sigrid is no people pleaser but instead just wants to "be raw," which she defined to MTV News correspondent Meredith Graves as "showing all the good and the bad sides of someone."

    Sigrid added: "I think it's so important having real relations, whether that be friends or love interests, or working, or whatever it is. It's so important to be honest with each other and with yourself, and sometimes being honest is showing sides of you that you may not like."
