Need a pick-me up? “If you’ve got a dream you’ve gotta protect it, go get it, and encourage yourself!” Toronto songstress Staasia Daniels says.
Today (July 26th), she offers a bit of positivity on her new single “Laid Off.” Contrary to what the title may suggest, “Laid Off” is about staying focused on your goals.
“Around that time, I had just gotten Laid off, but I felt so rich in my spirit (feeling like I’m in the playoffs), plus, any other title would have been boring, lol. I wanted to have a song we could rock to, while still feeding our minds with positivity. Not another club turn up, or relationship record, but a song that can feed our faith, and help us to keep our eyes on the prize because ignorant people say nasty things to try and throw us off our game,” she told Complex.
“The funny thing about laid off is, I wrote it without a beat while I was vacuuming. It was just one of the many song ideas I had in my phone that I was planning on getting production for. One night, 5PiECE was cooking up, and I really liked the groove. I started singing some of the ideas I had, and this one worked best. Xpress aka DJXP and EverythingOShauN were there with me, and I was like, yo… can this work, or nah?”
“Laid Off” is off her upcoming project Hidden Gems which is scheduled for release on August 4th.
