Samia has shared the new single ‘Mad at Me’, which is taken from her forthcoming sophomore LP Honey. The track was co-written with Rostam and features Minneapolis artist Papa MBye. Check it out via the accompanying video, directed by Samia and Muriel Knudson, below.
“The lyrics for ‘Mad At Me’ came from a poem I’d written about imagining what it’d be like to stop caring about what anyone was thinking,” Samia explained in a statement. “I was cosplaying a position that I haven’t experienced – which is of literally any confidence in my point of view. In the video we tried to embody that character – a bunch of girls having a good time in spite of it all. It is a big lie. I wrote it with Rostam Batmanglij on the day we met. Such an honor to have Papa Mbye on it!!”
Honey is set to arrive on January 27, 2023 via Grand Jury Music. It was led by the single ‘Kill Her Freak Out’.
