This Week’s Model — Shilpa Ray, “Lawsuits and Suicide”

Shilpa Ray has never struck me as an artist who is reticent about sharing her heated thoughts. Her new single, “Lawsuits and Suicide,” takes aim at a former abusive partner who followed the adhered to the common pattern of greeting every attempt at ceasing the relationship with the high-drama threats cited in the song’s title: “Lawsuits and suicide/ Then it was lawsuits and no suicide?/ What made you change your mind?/ Were those the best threats you could come up with to destroy me?” Backed by zingy synths, Ray delivers the lyrics in a purring bellow that conveys that whatever wounds she’s got have completely healed and only made her stronger.

Ray’s new album, Portrait of a Lady, is scheduled for release at the end of April.
