Miami-born singer-songwriter and rapper, Kat Dahlia, is not here to croon over a broken heart. She’s here to show how easy it can be to bounce back from a breakup with her new single “Facil.”
The Cuban-American incorporates pop and R&B influences into the track, while also drawing influences from her roots.
“It plays up the character of this girl who’s just killin’ it after her breakup. It’s like the glow-up after the breakup,” Dahlia said in a press release. The bilingual-track alludes to the fear of getting over the breakup and being alone more than actually breaking up. The single also serves as the third of a four-part series leading up to her upcoming album,‘SeVeN,’ due October 23rd.
Channeling vintage infomercials that showed little empowerment for women, the video transitions from black and white to vibrant colors as Kat releases her sorrows. “Facil” sends a powerful message on the intersection of independence and sass, dismisses the traditional rut appearance and highlights how a break up can be the perfect opportunity to upgrade and let go of toxic habits.
First seen in the industry with tracks like “Gangsta” and “Crazy,” Dahlia’s new project solidifies a new phase: “The last seven years have been a crazy journey in terms of my career,” she explained. “It’s an interesting time in my life. This project feels like me.”
