We love your new song “Sit Down” and the accompanying video. What are they representing in your opinion?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it till they hate – women are superior. “Sit Down”, as a project, is a statement pushing back against men’s minimisation of womxnhood.
The song itself is a reflection of a time where I was just sick of male energy coming at me; going on like they know what it is to be female in this world. Sit Down is me telling them man to shut TF up. The video is just an extension of that. I wanted the visual to put female energy above male. We’ve got a young man representing the male species, DEJA showing the womxn how to stand up to him, and the beautiful group of womxn listening to and following the words of DEJA.
You’ve recently dropped your EP. What did it mean for you to finally release it?
It’s just a step in the right direction tbf. I’ve got albums worth of unreleased music waiting to drop so I’m just eager to keep it moving.
