MAYA B | MUSIC VIDEO "SELENAS"
Independent artist Maya B has debuted her first single with Capitol Records that she wrote and produced herself. "Selenas" is an angsty, electro-punk anthem to all the boys you're better off without. With it's catchy lines about white adidas, Selena's hair and smoking on the reefer, Maya's modern feminist vibe is definitely there, not to mention the flame-filled, trippy energy of her music video just released last night. It's the art sucker punch of videos.
Maya explains, “Art was that whisper I heard at 5, telling me this is what you're meant to do. Growing up, I was stuck between quick confessions and eternal silence. I was stuck between Mom and Dad. I was stuck between breaking the mold and being cemented into the cracks. I’m still stuck to the way art touched me…. Art is that feeling I get when I lose. Art was the push telling me to use this hurt as fuel. Art is spring food for my eyes while irritating my nostrils. Art is the calm sun squeezing through the blinds, waking me up and telling me, ‘get the fuck up and work’.”
