Toronto’s Saya is one to look out for in 2018. She has just shared her new single and video for her electrifying track “Paid”. She is on her way to releasing her debut EP, Chills & Thrills, later this year.
Paid follows-up from her previous offering, On Ice, which explored empowerment in relationships, ignoring traditional notions of how love can be taken too seriously.
“I definitely have a dominant personality and I have really loved the process of embracing womanhood,” Saya says, “I wanted to make a song that someone could listen to and feel sexy too.”
The video, offers another moment where Saya is showing authority in leading the direction, both on & behind the camera. The video uses the imagery of guns, money and sex and it fits the vibe of the track perfectly. That ability to play with a topic and turn it on its head is shown across a variety of videos she’s already made, like the 70’s horror movie spoof she created around song “Wet Dreams” video.
Watch her new video above.
