Haviah Mighty, the beloved Toronto hip-hop artist, won the prestigious Polaris Music Prize, just over a year ago for her well-received album 13th floor. Now a year later, she published a music video for one of the biggest tracks of the album ‘Bag Up’.
Talking about the song Haviah added: “‘Bag Up’ is the last piece of content from the album,’13th Floor.’ It’s amazing that we’ve had over a year of fun with this project! We collaborated with Rack & Pinion on this visual, depicting a selection of resilient women on different paths, dealing with different life hindrances, but bonding over and connecting with the go-getter energy that lies in all of us. With playful lines like ‘I just wanna get my M’s up … mmm mmm I’m a smartie though” and more personal lines like ‘They wanna gentrify dreads, but I’m the creme de la creme,’ I focus on my specific hustle – being a musician – and how I will remain true to the craft while growing this empire.”
