For Samia’s latest single, the New York-based artist details some large emotions while reminding herself that she needn’t worry over spilt Milk. Tender and profound, the single weighs heavy with an honest bite. Of the song, Samia says:

“I was dealing with an eating disorder while my grandmother/family’s matriarch was dying. I was so mad at myself; it felt hypocritical to be encouraging someone else to fight for her life while I was willfully taking years off of my own. A lot of people have eating disorders and everybody’s grandparents die so I didn’t feel entitled to the deep sadness I felt. I do now! In the video, I’m really attached to these balloons which sort of represent the part of my identity that was emaciated and dealing with loss. The simplicity of the video reflects my grief; there was something comfortably uncomplicated about being totally sad.”
