Aiyana-Lee is ready to make her big debut!
The 21-year-old rising R&B-pop sensation just dropped her debut seven-track EP Wednesday’s Child (Side A) on Friday (February 25), and Just Jared is bringing you behind-the-scenes of her new music video for “Gangster of Love,” which is currently Top 10 at U.S. R&B radio and just recently got a live daytime TV premiere on The Real.
“The ‘GOL’ video is a visual piece that really captures the essence of the song emotionally,” she explains to Just Jared of the music video.
“My creative partner, Nicole Anderson and me, sat together and crafted this treatment, instantly inspired by the power of the song. Nayip, our incredible director did a great job adding and bringing it to life! I hope the cinematic essence and story captivates and immerses people into a story…it’s definitely to be continued.”
The EP includes collaborations with acts like Neff-U, Sebastian Kole, Nathalia Marshall and singer-songwriter Nicole Daciana Anderson, who is also Aiyana-Lee’s mother, manager and creative partner.
“Wednesday’s Child takes its name from a popular nursery rhyme that predicts a child’s character based on their day of birth. It says, ‘Wednesday’s child is full of woe.’ Although I wasn’t born on a Wednesday, I believe we are all Wednesday’s Child,” she says of the EP.
“We’re all dealt a tough hand in life, no matter who we are. Going through troubled times and being an outcast, feeling like the world is out to get you, is something we can all relate to.”
