Sweden by way of Gambia singer Luana Kiara has released a poignant video for her debut single ‘Trigger’.
The video addresses the issue of domestic abuse and captures Luana dancing with a man as romance begins to escalate into violence.
The song is a dark R&B roller and reinforces the message that you can never truly know the daily struggles other people face. The platinum selling and Grammy-nominated Christian Nilsson and Mårten Fohlin produced the track.
‘Trigger’ was released last month as part of the New Balance Scandinavia International Women’s Day campaign. Luana Kiara was the face of the campaign, for which ‘Trigger’ was the soundtrack, and as part of this she spoke about her background and the importance for women to stand up for themselves in a moving mini documentary.
‘Trigger’ follows Luana’s collaboration with the Scandinavian production and DJ duo Tungevaag & Raaban, where she was a featured vocalist on their smash hit ‘Bad Boy’, which was released last year and has clocked up over 14 million streams on Spotify alone.
Now stepping to the forefront with her debut single ‘Trigger’, Luana Kiara is proving herself to already be an important name on the Swedish music scene. She is a strong female figurehead and set to take the world by storm.
