We recently caught up with the 16-year-old jazzy singer to chat about her new music video, “For Another Day,” her way of life and just when her next video is coming. Check it:
On the feel of her music video: “We wanted to create a setting that was just beautiful light and beautiful to look at. We didnâ€™t want it to take attention away from the song but at the same tie we wanted to kinda tell a story through the song. The song talks about dreaming and where dreams take you so basically the whole idea of the music video is that Iâ€™m falling asleep and then I wake up. It looks like a normal day but really Iâ€™m in a dream but I donâ€™t even know.
“All the strange things that happen like the guy of my dreams appears and then all of a sudden he disappears and Iâ€™m like, ‘Where did he go?’ Then he hands me a flower and I wake up and I actually have the flower in my hand. I look at it like, ‘How did I even get that? I didnâ€™t go to bed with it?’ Ttâ€™s kind of a love story to an extent but really everything kind of happens in a slow manner. It doesnâ€™t take attention away from the song or anything so itâ€™s very simple and I think itâ€™s very beautifully done. Iâ€™m very happy with the way it came out.”
On more videos in the future: “For sure! I was actually about to ask on Twitter, my followers, what song they wanted to see a music video to cause I want to do another one. I just donâ€™t know which one. I have an idea for ‘Cool My Heels’ and also ‘Never Make It One Time’ would be a fun one cause that one really tells a story and itâ€™s very descriptive so itâ€™d be fun to do a music video for that one too. I donâ€™t know. I guess weâ€™ll have to see but for sure Iâ€™d do another one.”
On what she would be doing if she wasn’t a singer: “[Still] Singing because to me, singing is not just a profession necessarily. Itâ€™s just a way of life. I canâ€™t even explain it. Even if I was performing in restaurants Iâ€™d still be singing because itâ€™s what I love and I canâ€™t see myself doing anything else. This is why I know this is meant to be because I literally cannot see myself in anything other than music. So itâ€™s just kind of a sense of destiny that I guess that Iâ€™ve always just had and that this is what I needed to be doing.”
