Where do I belong?
Tell me your story and I'll tell you mine
I'm all ears, take your time, we got all night
Show me the rivers crossed, the mountains scaled
Show me who made you walk all the way here
Settle down, put your bags down
(Ooh) You're alright now
We don't need to be related to relate
We don't need to share genes or a surname
You are
You are
My chosen
Chosen family
So what if we don't look the same?
We been going through the same thing
You are
You are
My chosen
Chosen family
Hand me a pen and I'll rewrite the pain
When you're ready, we'll turn the page together
Open a bottle, it's time we celebrate
Who you were, who you are
We're one and the same, yeah, yeah

We don't need to be related to relate
We don't need to share genes or a surname
You are
You are
My chosen
Chosen family
So what if we don't look the same?
We been going through the same thing
You are
You are
My chosen
Chosen family
I, I chose you
You chose me
I chose
(Chosen family)

  • This is so cute. It's so cool watching elton the fucking legend w her. at first it's like he's in a different dimension because he's so iconic but then you see how happy they are to be singing this together and it reminds me of how the most beautiful part of life is love between humans which makes us realize we are the same and devinely connected ♡♡♡

  • I love this song so much

  • Lindooooo👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 fabuloso..

  • That second "your are" by Elton sounded like it was directed toward Rina and my heart exploded.

  • 🌈❤🤗🤗🤗

  • Beautiful voice Rina

  • Music is just what I needed from you guys yeahhhhhh 😎🤩

  • Rina​ is very beautiful and powerful voice. I really like her great song!! This song is meaningful and the key is really great for Elton John. He is the legend Great Job!!!!!! I listen again&again

  • Ah. when I can i go to the concert i know i'm going to be ugly crying in front of Rina

  • What a beautiful song, I really LOVE❤️ it. Amazing 💕💕💕

  • Woahh... crazyyyyy 😍😍😍

  • Deslumbrante linda ❤️

  • Com essa cantora de uma voz

  • Elton Jon vc é um astro da música pop vc é de mais 👍👏

  • Música muito linda

  • RFS Israel *

  • 😍😍😍 Top!

  • great to hear

  • Absolutely stunning, beautiful and inspiring song. The more I hear it, the more I love it!

  • If you've seen Rocketman, you'll know that Elton grew up in very ordinary working class circumstances on the fringes of London. I think he's showing all this love and support for Rina, Dua Lipa and Taron Egerton because he sees himself in them. They weren't born with a silver spoon like Chris Martin, Marcus Mumford, Florence Welch, Sam Smith and all the rest of the posh lot who've been clogging up the charts with their banality the last 20 years. The 2020s is the decade that unprivileged, brilliant pop stars take the throne back.


  • Rina you're so gorgeous.

  • Beautiful message for a song.

  • I listen to this song then I start to cry because I go through the same thing ;)

  • music Perfection

  • Am I the only one that hears Jessie J's Flashlight in this?

  • The legend Elton John is back singing yeah

  • Hi Rina, You hava no idea how many times I share your song through my FB account even you can go there look at it yourself. My account name is Pyei Sone. Your song is so moving and I agree with Sir Elton John, you are the best artist... Thank you for the music the song you are singing.

  • I don't why most people that Chosen Family is her worst song...

  • Elton John?? The KING?? With Rina Sawayama?? I am S H O O K 🤯 The message is wonderful 🤗 I have always had to experience abuse from my 2 parents and 1 sibling because all 3 of my immediate family members are so toxic and problematic 😞 I have never had any best friend and have had 2 fake platonic relationships 🥺 I have never had any partner and I have had several fake boyfriends that domestically abused me, never having any romantic feeling reciprocated from any other girl 😭 I have only felt romantic attraction to 1 person and I had to go no contact with them after wasting 10 years of my adolescent life with them 😡 I feel so alone on this planet ☹️ I have friends and I appreciate every single 1 of them, of course, because some people have never even had 1 friend and are an orphan without any brother or sister 😥 But, I would like to receive love as I have given it to many people that only gave me hate 😓 My 1 step grandfather and 1 of my 3 uncles that are my mother’s brothers were the only 2 people that have ever spent time with me because they would genuinely enjoy my company, but, the step grandfather died when I was a child that was younger than a 9 year age kid at the time and the uncle died when I was 20 in 2020 and I am 21 now 😔 My sole step grandmother is still alive and is a total b*tch 😒 Yes, I absolutely hate her 🤣 My grandmother and grandfather are both still alive and are terrible people 🙃 My other grandparents are dead and I never met the grandfather, while only having 1 memory of the grandmother and not remembering if she was kind or mean towards me 😕 2 of my cousins hate me because the male is a misogynist and the female is a homophobe 😤 I am a Bi Woman that has experienced a lot of prejudice due to my Disability from both teachers and classmates as a student ever since Kindergarten 😣 I can not remember whether or not my Preschool teacher caused me any harm or not 😐 I have experienced covert incestuous and predatory sexual abuse, not overt 🤢 I have experienced sexual harassment and sexual assault 🤮 I have had at least 2 day care workers hurt me, so, more than 1 has caused me some sort of pain as a toddler at no older than 3 years of age 😬 I have had 2 therapists that did not help me at all, with the first being as a 12 year old preteen and the last being a 19 year old young adult that had just grown up 1 year ago at the age of 18 🙄 I get treated badly for being Fat and having Neurodiversity of some sort 😰 But, despite all of the years that I was forced to suffer as a juvenile and still have been suffering for the past 3 years since I became a legal adult, while I wish that I could go back 4 years into the past to be 17 again, I now feel good enough about myself to tell you that I have an at least 3 quality trait personality 😇 I could use more confidence because I want to get a test for any diagnosis and treat what I have with therapy 🤔 I am kind, smart & strong 🤩 I hope that I will never doubt my capability ever again 🥰 If any person read through the entirety of my comment in this section, then, I feel grateful 🙂 Thank you ☺️ Bye 👋🏼

  • Truly wonderful

  • Worst

    • Says the kid who can't even spell Gacha

  • 感動しました

  • How old is this please ? Written by ?? TIA

  • Que coisa mais linda esses dois amei amei

  • Beautiful !

  • This was the most touching song of the album for me! I love that Elton loved it too. Congratulations Rina you deserve it all.

  • This really relates to me because I am one of three democrats in a family (both sides) full of republicans. I often felt alone at family reunions, wish my 10-year-old self heard this song.

  • gooddamn, CHILLSSS!! and amazing lyric like always!!

  • Absolutely beautiful. Breathtaking.


  • That guy on piano is good. He could go far.

  • I love you Rina, I'll forever be grateful for hearing this song.

  • Gorillaz x Elton John and Super Smash Bros x Minecraft. Ok, this day is so EPIC.

  • Uau S2

  • I'm crying

  • Dorian electra collabing with the village people and now this! I love seeing young lgbtq+ artists with older ones ❤️ this is what we need.

  • 🌈Legit can’t stop listening to this masterpiece ❤️⛈

  • 🎧🎶👌👍🎼

  • I waited 10 years to come out to my parents, i was so afraid of rejection and if it wasn't for my chosen family, i don't know if would even have accepted myself. My parents are accepting which is a relief but i doubt any extended family members would be, but who knows eh? I am so grateful to the community for helping me accept myself

  • So much like Annie Lennox 💛


  • I don’t know how I found this song. I have never heard of Rina either. I love this so much.

  • I love this song ❤️

  • bro im so in love with rina

  • Lovely song x

  • Im so disconnected from my biological family. I live abroad, and can barely speak past 3rd grade level in my mother tongue. I have my parents, but even still we barely talk. I'm also a closeted lesbian, and i'm so scared of what my family will think of me when I come out. It won't be hard for them to turn on me because we're so disconnected, and I don't want to lose my biological family. At some point, I think i've considered lavender marriage with a closeted gay man as an option. It's not fair that anyone has to live like this, but this really helped me. This, and i cannot express this enough, comforts me so much. I can't express how much this means to me. When I don't have my biological family by my side, i can rest easy knowing i'll have a chosen one, full of people who'll accept and love me for me.

  • 素敵な曲

  • two people who saved my life collaborating together gives me so much joy... thank you, rina. thank you, sir elton. and thank you to everyone who's ever felt lost and afraid but then found the courage to get back up again.

  • I love that Elton is giving attention to Rina even though she isn’t a huge name yet he just cares about her talent it’s super cool

  • Wow!... Powerfully beaUtiful ❤️💜💗💙💚💛🖤♥️ #purpleU💜

  • imagine being gay in a muslim family in malaysia! i identify with this song so closely and thanks to my friends who are my chosen family 😢😢😢

  • Crying so much rn,,,,,,,,,,,

  • This song is absolutely beautiful! It brings us together, puts us on an equal pane, makes us feel all the same! I have been following and listening to Sir Elton John since the late 60"s, and I am proud to see that throughout his career he has sought to bring others into and make them a part of the musical family that we now can enjoy. As a personal note, I was humbled to have worked with Mr. Dennis Sheppard, to get to know Dennis and to learn about his son "Matthew", and to know that Sir Elton, and Bernie Taupin wrote and dedicated a song about "Matthew's murder". I am also proud to know that Sir Elton, created the "Elton John Aid's Foundation" and that he has given so much to help the world with this horrible disease. Sir Elton, please keep helping the younger singers, and musicians of today as you have been doing. Help the world heal from the pain, the scars, and the loss of what we are all going though. But most importantly, please keep signing your song's, they are an inspiration to all of us! Thank You "SIR", I truly appreciate what you have done and what you are doing!

  • To all my bisexual people out there facing uncertainty and bi-erasure Keep your head up, you're amazing just the way you are!

  • having goosebumps with this versionnnnnn

  • One of the most beautiful and inspiring song 🎵 of the year..💘

  • She has a deep voice

  • What a beautiful collaboration ❤️❤️❤️😍😍😘😘🥰🥰

  • This is really beautiful

  • Sir Elton!

  • Semplicemente meraviglioso

  • Everytime Elton John performs with another artist now. I always imagine what the song would sound like with his 1970s voice

  • Meu Deus que coisa linda

  • Love this Collaboration with Elton

  • Great song!

  • my heart wants what it wants

  • I am an adopted daughter and I love this music 🤍

  • can someone just adopt me, my parents don't want me because I'm bisexual, they told me before that if I didn't stop being bisexual, they might not consider me as their child anymore.

  • I just love how full and strong her voice is. So many new singers all use the whisper/drunk/sleepy voice. Also wonderful and refreshing to listen to a song with meaningful lyrics and no f words.

  • Lindo

  • Qualquer coisa onde está escrito ELTON JOHN eu já espero uma obra de arte como está, pqp!! QUE MUSICÃO !!!

  • I came here after I saw them on fB to watch the full video I love the song

  • I can’t stop smiling 🤣🤣👏👏

  • I get sooooo many goosebumps with this song with headphones at full blast it’s so amazing I’ve listened to it on repeat like 7 times. It’s so powerful 🤯🤯😍😍🙏🏼🙏🏼

  • Such a beautiful song.

  • An Anthem is made

  • I cry..

  • Absolutely beautiful 😍❤

  • this has to win some sort of award it just has to.

  • It sounds a bit like the version of Flashlight sung on Pitch Perfect 2.


  • Thank you

  • Any iphone users thought that your alarm is ringing when listening to this song ?=)))

  • This song is very good! Listening to 2021!

  • Only one species of humans on the planet. Family is gonna fight. In the end, just like when we came into this world, we'll need someone's help putting us in the ground or urn. hate is easy, love takes work. work. Only one race: Human Race

  • Top esse vai fica na história

  • How beautiful is our lives without any pain on our souls!!!

  • When he looks at her he's like proud father. 😌😍
