Feel the intensity of “Migraine” by Cheryl Craigie


The latest single from Cheryl Craigie titled, “Migraine,” has been released and she offers a very personal and significant perspective. The song is driven by her personal experience with chronic migraines and she hopes to sensitize about the challenges that migraine sufferers face around the world.

Certainly, she takes rap and hip-hop categories into consideration which simply brings out the dynamism and intensity of the song’s plotline. She is able to take music listeners on a journey through the painful and despairing pain of migraines with her powerful vocals.

The song creates an atmosphere from the first few seconds with the help of a percussion that is intense and some occasional synth textures that are dark at the same time. Bright piano notes fill in the gaps occasionally. Along with the rhythmic rapping of Cheryl, the emotional urgency and raw reality of living with migraines can also be felt.

In “Migraine,” Cheryl paints with red and blue the full vividness of the sensation of the pain and the feeling of the migraine that occurs in a head. Using funk, hip-hop and electronics as the basis for her hooks where she simply raps turns it into a very distinctive and intricate sound that easily captivates everyone’s attention.

“Migraine” is a very vocal and relatable song that shines a light on the experience people have often ignored or misinterpreted. Cheryl Craigie’s innocent account of her migraine ordeals makes listeners relate to and sympathize with the challenges that millions around the globe have to deal with.
