These days, it’s challenging for many artists to maintain interest in such an overly saturated market. So when Emotional Oranges decided to enter the picture, they knew that they had to approach the industry with a different strategy that would instantly lure people into their world and the muses suddenly appeared.

Back in May, the Los Angeles-based R&B collective fully exposed themselves with their debut EP The Juice: Vol I. Today, we’re premiering their new single “Just Like You.” In true mysterious fashion, it has a double meaning behind it which the pair briefly broke down in an email.

“We started off writing about the double standard around women being open about masturbating,” they explained. “But it’s really just a love song about passion and longing for your partner when they’re not around.”

Last year, Emotional Oranges’ hit single “Motion” became the theme song for RuPaul’s Drag Race. No doubt that there are more bangers on the way soon. In the meantime, scroll down to stream the song and view the dates on their international A Very Emotional Tour this fall:
