Rachel Marie – currently releasing music under the name Yona Marie – is a lifelong musician, writer, singer, and producer from the Washington, D.C. area. Yona has captured the internet with her musical talent more than once – her single High went viral in 2013, and another single Just Wanna Love You has accrued over a million streams. Her latest release is a single called Take Me To The Moon, and this throwback R&B track is nostalgic, lighthearted, and fun.
As far as we’re concerned, Take Me To The Moon is an instant summertime hit. With a clear likeness to ’90s and early 2000’s style pop-flavored R&B, this single is full of catchy melodies and spunky, vibrant energy.
