Rising Indonesian pop/R&B singer-songwriter Naykilla unveils a new vibrant single and video “You”, a heartfelt confessional about unrequited love that translates into a new wave of positivity.
In Naykilla’s latest offering, she touches on the familiar sting of a significant other becoming distant, despite being given repeated chances to fall in love again. The song is an earnest nod to the need for self-love as she moves on from misplaced trust in a relationship. Naykilla shares, “Happiness starts with ourselves–a little less expectation will minimise the pain, so let’s just vibe along to the song! ”
The accompanying music video is a characteristically vibrant visual montage that is reminiscent of the uplifting and bubbly energy that the song encompasses. “In the video, I wanted to portray more of the fun and enjoyment of having “me time” to celebrate the decision of letting someone that I used to really like go,” Naykilla elaborates.
Naykilla began her passion for music at a tender age of 13, joining various singing competitions in Indonesia as well as uploading song covers on her social media platforms, which led to the starlet winning over an audience in Indonesia with her enchanting and lush pop-leaning vocals.
At the age of 16, Naykilla’s first foray into stardom was the release of a string of singles “Dreams”, “Changed”, and “Honey & Lemon”. Even with more than half a million followers on social media under her belt, it is her authentic relatability online that has gained her swathes of fans who rally around her. The starlet is gearing up to release more original music this year, and is definitely one to watch.
