Daya Gets 'Shushed' By Male Producer, Seeks Female Producers To Make 'Fiyaaaa'

Daya had a not so pleasant experience recently while in a studio session with a male producer.

The 19-year-old “Sit Still, Look Pretty” singer took to her Twitter account to share her experience and reach out for new producers to work with.

“i was audibly shushed at a session i was at the other day by a man for simply offering my opinion that i was flat on a note (which i was & he ended up discreetly changing),” she wrote. “it’s my voice and i can do whatever the f–k i want with it and if u patronize me that’s cool i’ll just find another one of u x”

Daya continued, “ppl forget sometimes that i have the power to sing what i want to and pick who i work with and if you’re an asshole there’s nooo way i’m coming back for round 2, i don’t care how many top 10′s you’ve had.”

She concluded her “rant” with an offer to any female producers. “anyways tryna work w more female producers so if ur out there hmu we gon make some fiyaaaa,” she wrote.

Daya Wants People to Take Her Seriously As a Songwriter

Daya Wants People to Take Her Seriously As a Songwriter

Daya dropped her compulsively listenable new single “New” this week, a song she co-wrote.

“I’ve always been a songwriter,” the 18-year-old singer told Billboard for their Pop Shop podcast, “but I think I’ve grown a lot of confidence in myself the past couple months.”

Despite her obvious talent, Daya explains that she often works with collaborators who assume she is “this young girl who just doesn’t…have any ideas. Which is really dumb. It’s not how I would like to be treated.”

“So, I’ve put more pressure on myself to just force myself in these situations and just work even twice as hard as someone who maybe would be respected right off the bat. Just to be like, ‘Hey, I am a writer. I have these ideas. I should be respected as anyone else who’s in this session right now.’”

We applaud Daya for standing up for herself and her abilities.

Daya‘s back at it again with “New,” and you can stream it right here!

The Grammy-winning “Don’t Let Me Down” hit-maker co-wrote the single with Stargate, Sir Nolan, James Newman and Leland and it’s the first taste of what’s to come from her sophomore album, the follow-up to her gold-selling debut LP Sit Still, Look Pretty.

“I feel like ‘New‘ really is an all-encompassing term for what’s happening in my career right now,” Daya told Billboard, following the news of her Interscope deal. “It’s a new beginning for me — and I don’t think people will be like, ‘Oh, she’s changed. She’s different.’ I think they’ll be expecting to come along with me on this journey, and they’ll realize that people do change. We’re all humans, we all go through phases.”
