Wrabel Enlists Rising Asian Star Valentina Ploy To Duet “hurts like hell”

Wrabel has teamed up with rising Asian star Valentina Ploy for a special reimagining of his stand-out heartbreaking ballad “hurts like hell.”

On how the collaboration came about, Wrabel shares, “I got in touch with Valentina through my label A&R, and I’m so glad they put me onto her cos now I’m such a fan! I love the honesty in her work and oh my gosh the voice! So excited to get to sing this song together.”

The stars aligned for Valentina, as she reveals, “I’ve loved Wrabel’s songs for a long time and “hurts like hell” has always been in my favourites playlist! Stoked to be featured on this new version we made together! ”

Wrabel first debuted “hurts like hell” in 2020 with a stirring performance on NBC’s Today. Co-written with Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, P!nk) and produced by Stint (Demi Lovato, Kesha), it quickly became a live fan favourite with all-too-relatable lyrics that touch on feelings of desperation, longing, and the unrelenting memories that can haunt us years after the fallout of a relationship.

Wrabel released his 2021 debut album ‘these words are all for you’ to critical acclaim with praise from Billboard who said it boasts “boisterous vocals met by beautiful piano melodies” and from SPIN who said it “showcases his trademark, beautifully intimate performances and powerhouse songwriting.” More recently, he released a deluxe version called ‘these words are all for you too’, which included three additional songs as well as remixes by Goldhouse and Japanese Wallpaper, and Wrabel’s recent collaboration with Cam on a refurbished version of “london.”
