Belgian singer-songwriter Margo Raats unveils Crying In The Taxi, a lush alt-pop track that highlights her emotive compositions and enchanting vocals. With introspective melodies and poignant lyricism, she captivates audiences once again. The beautifully directed video by Henry Croston enhances the overall ambiance of the song’s experience.

In Crying In The Taxi, Margo embraces vulnerability as a source of strength, defying the label of a Sad Girl and revealing her multifaceted nature and emotional depth. Reflecting on the release, Margo shares her thoughts on the transformative power of love and the importance of embracing vulnerability in a world that often demands perfection​:

“Sometimes I wonder if it would be better if we had a certain amount of I love you’s and sorry’s to give. I think words lose meaning, it’s hard being honest, in a world where no one is pure. I’ve learned that love is more than joining shadows on the wall, it takes time to know someone, the better days of us were getting high and getting lost finding concord in the endless in-between”

“Love makes me cry, in a way it also tells me I’m alive. I wanted crying in the taxi to be a celebration of crying and leaning in, that’s our duty on this earth to lean In. I wanted to be able to dance to the sound of letting go. Cause this time it’s time.​ Writing songs I often look for answers below the surface and between the lines but not with Crying In The Taxi. It was simple, a change in destination. For everyone who can relate to this, you should be proud + i hope you dance to it too.​”

From a Belgian ranch to global stages, Margo Raats’ journey epitomizes self-discovery and artistic growth. Inspired by icons like Joni Mitchell and The Beatles, she found her voice through songwriting. Venturing to London at 15, she immersed herself in its vibrant music scene, refining her craft through open mic nights and catching the eye of industry figures.
