According to PapaRaZzle, ‘Darling’ is an embodiment of his vision to spread positivity and joy through his music. Speaking further about the inspiration behind the track, PapaRaZzle describes it as his heartfelt tribute to love and romance, “This song is my little contribution to putting some more sweetness, love, and romance back in the world. It is a song that celebrates love, and an appreciation for someone who’s been by your side, plus the song will make you dance. I feel it was my duty to put that energy into the world in the form of music, and I also think ‘Darling’ is such a sweet word, it should be said more (lol). I hope it resonates and people feel it as deeply in their hearts as that’s where it was created from.”
