Let's come right out and say that blurring your backgrounds into oblivion is certainly easier with a full-frame sensor, but really isn't the end-all, be-all of photography. But there's a reason tech companies are spending millions of dollars to imitate the look: the ability to obscure distractions may be a benefit for photographers that don't always have complete control over their surroundings.

With the right wide-aperture lenses (especially if you want to use the monstrous and beautiful RF 50mm F1.2), the Canon EOS RP will give you excellent subject separation that is just more difficult to achieve on smaller sensors, plus Pupil Detection helps ensure you can achieve critical focus at those very wide apertures.

On the other hand – and there's always another hand – the RP's full-frame sensor is going to be just a little noisier than its full-frame peers, particularly if you shoot Raw images and want to post-process. This may limit your ability to shoot in very high-contrast or harsh lighting conditions.
