Dinah Jane Opens Up About Quitting Music In 2020 & Starting Her Own Record Label

Dinah Jane is getting candid about why she stepped away from music in 2020 and what’s coming up for her!

The 25-year-old singer and former Fifth Harmony member took a break from music during the pandemic, following the release of her last song “Missed a Spot.”

In new interview, Dinah opened up about why she quit making music, and dished on returning to music and what’s coming up for her, including her own label!

Check out what she said inside…

“There was beauty in spending that amount of time with my family but then there was also that inner voice of, ‘Who are you? Who do you want to be?’” Dinah told People about the pandemic and being “fed up” with the pressure. “All these questions started kicking me down at the time, and I was like, ‘I honestly quit.’ I told my family, ‘I don’t want this no more. I don’t care for music.’”

“I was honestly fighting my inner demons, and they had to understand that I was not OK,” she added about fighting depression. “I couldn’t keep going because I felt like if people in my career pushed me to keep going, I was going to destroy myself.”

“People were always pulling me left and right, like, ‘Get back in the studio.’ Or my fans, I felt like, in a way, I let them down. But they understood why I had to just stop completely,” Dinah said. “I’m grateful for those hard times. I’m grateful for the relationships that have failed in my life. I’m grateful for things that didn’t go as planned because they’ve brought me here, to a better understanding of who Dinah is.”

Now, she’s been working on new music and is making history by launching her own record label, becoming the first Polynesian woman to do so.

“I’m the first female artist of Polynesian descent in the mainstream world to do this,” she told People. “I want to give that platform to the next generation of Polynesian kids.”

“I’ve been a part of many writing camps, but this one’s really special to me because it’s me and my own people,” Dinah added about an upcoming writing camp other AAPI artists. “I’m really excited to tap into my native tongue, especially.”

We can’t wait to hear what Dinah Jane has coming up!
