Meet budding pop star MIIA. Hailing from Norway, the talented singer/songwriter is a product of the Scandinavian pop scene. Signed at age 14, MIIA’s (pronounced MEE-uh) debut single, “In The Light of Love” reached #24 on iTunes Pop chart in Norway and has been used in several synchs on film and TV. Since then, her cover of Sia‘s “Elastic Heart” (featuring Brandon Skeie) has generated 1.1M views to-date.
And now, today, she returns with her next offering in the stunning ballad “Dynasty.” Listen to the exclusive premiere via Billboard here.
“I thought we built a dynasty that heaven couldn’t shake. I thought we built a dynasty forever couldn’t break up,” she croons on the heart-rending track, before relenting on the repeated line, “It all fell down, it all fell down.”
The powerful heartbreak anthem, which the singer wrote following a break-up, features striking multi-octave vocals, that create a unique yet familiar sound that is part Adele, part Demi Lovato, and paired with the edge of Tove Lo and Imogen Heap. For fans of all four, you’re going to want to keep an eye on this young crossover talent.
