While some pop-R&B tracks come with a side of attitude, Los Angeles’ Sarah Tromley’s new single ‘Fake It’ is a whole damn meal of it. From the very start when the tune opens with heavy bass and unrelenting trap, you’re alerted to the fact that this song is a baddie anthem. It’s one that lifts the lid on the idea that women are expected to fake their pleasure in the bedroom, which very much extends from the wider oppression of women in a patriarchal society, but Tromley doesn’t want to stand for this departure from reality any more.
Co-written by Lilian ‘Lita’ Caputo and Jelli Dorman, this formidable team keep it short’n’sweet, giving us just under two minutes of professional and sexy sophistication that will make the listener want to go in for a second serving.
“This track came from the idea that we as women are forced to “fake it til we make it” in so many parts of our lives, including sex… that its almost freeing when you find something that’s real. The first time you no longer have to fake it leaves you chasing a high of authenticity. Real emotion. Feeling alive. We need to feel safe and loved enough to show up as our truest selves in all aspects of life, especially in the bedroom.”
