Japanese singer Sena Kana released her brand new single "Up" today. Premiering exclusively through Billboard, "Up" is an upbeat collab with Wiz Khalifa and Sheppard.  

The music video for the optimistic song focuses on Sena and Wiz Khalifa, and alternates between moments of sobriety and euphoria, vacillating between lush outdoor shots and hazy party scenes. It was directed by Brian Petchers and shot in Los Angeles.

The melodic “Up” is a piano-enhanced dance track produced by Lindsey Jackson with Katalyst.

A rising artist coming out of Tokyo, the sweet, strong-toned Sena has seen several songs make their marks European digital song sales charts, with last year's "Truth Or Dare" peaking at No. 1 on the France Digital Song Sales chart dated Feb. 17, 2018.

To commemorate the collaboration, Sena gifted Wiz Khalifa a 300-year-old samurai sword.
