When Donna Missal released her debut album This Time, she quickly cemented her place as one of the fresh, new faces of alternative R&B music, with the occasional penchant for songs to bang your head to (see "Keep Lying"). But today, the star is shifting into a bigger, brighter sound.
On Friday (Oct. 25), Missal released her new single "You Burned Me," a gloriously vast breakup anthem that sees the singer embracing sweeping sounds, like a chorus of horns, to deliver her all-too-real message. Fans of the singer will be familiar with the song's messaging — Missal details a break-up, but this time with an ounce of complicated happiness as she revels in watching her former life go up in flames. "I've been looking for reasons/ Not to feel what I'm feeling tonight," she belts. "But baby, you burned me/ You burned me for the last time."
The lyric video, which is premiering below, takes a simpler approach to the star's message. The grainy, slowed-down visual shows Missal wandering through an abandoned campground at dawn, while a smoldering pile of sticks and (probably) feelings burns through the background.
