Meet Niia. She is a Berklee and New School-educated jazz vocalist who has recorded and toured with Wyclef Jean.
In an email to BuzzFeed News, Niia said the song was six years in the making. “Over the years it stayed in a folder as I gained new experiences, new lovers and ultimately grew up,” she said. “For me the challenge was to find a way to make sure the song felt true to who I was back then, but also who I am now… the song is a perfect blend of the young me — eager to fall in love — and the current me that has a better idea of what I want and deserve.”
