Directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz (Blood Orange, St. Vincent, Fetty Wap…) and shot in Los Angeles, ‘Selenas’ is a visual punch in the face, perfectly complementing Maya’s kick-down-the-door arrival into tomorrow’s music scene.
With a poet’s sensibility, Maya B explains, “Art was that whisper I heard at 5, telling me this is what you’re meant to do. Growing up, I was stuck between quick confessions and eternal silence. I was stuck between Mom and Dad. I was stuck between breaking the mold and being cemented into the cracks. I’m still stuck to the way art touched me…. Art is that feeling I get when I lose. Art was the push telling me to use this hurt as fuel. Art is spring food for my eyes while irritating my nostrils. Art is the calm sun squeezing through the blinds, waking me up and telling me, ‘get the fuck up and work’.”
