Rai Knight skipped across our radar the other day and we haven't been the same since. Representing hard for Detroit, she joins Alex Winston as our favorite new export from the Motor City, and her triumphant summer single "New New" has been stuck on repeat around Neon Gold HQ for a minute now. All ebullient piano chords and carefree horns, "New New" is a reason to celebrate and establishes Rai as a serious rising star in the sprawling pop landscape of 2010. This is the sound of a breakthrough, that moment when your hopes and dreams fall perfectly in alignment with reality and it suddenly seems like everything in your life is might actually work out exactly as you'd always wanted, and it's fucking MAGIC.
