Amidst the cacophony of a business meeting, Claudillea enters the visual for her brand new track “Controlla” in tow with an infectious beat. Under the harsh lighting of a corporate office, she flashes a forced smile and starts her verse with a classic hip-hop tone, delivering a narrative that pokes at the prejudice and imbalanced power of the commercial world. Regaining power herself, Claudillea turns the track on its head — unleashing her operatic vocals featuring a fiery verse from Armani White.
“‘Controlla’ is about how the media and powers that be, try to control us; which leads to conspiracy theories and a lack of trust in the system. Off the back of my last track, ‘Release You’, I’m continuing to explore the idea that people are awakening to the realities of the world and systems we live in. We have leaders in power, but actually, WE the people have the power. There is definitely a shift, with my generation and the next; we are not going to be controlled,” imparts Claudillea.
With “Controlla” furthering Claudillea’s mission to bring the world of opera into the relevance of the modern world, it is safe to say the artist’s restless energy and fierce songwriting won’t be simmering down any time soon.
