Kiana V's latest track, "Dazed" and movement visual first released over the summer followed by a 5-track EP of the same name. When we last chatted with her, Kiana talked about the meaning behind the dreamy track which was to achieve inner healing. She reflected back at a time where there was a lot of negative self talk that kept her from initially finishing the song. However, she pushed through as this was an opportunity to reintroduce herself to herself.
The BTS gives you a glimpse of the process behind the movement visual. Shot during the pandemic, we catch Kiana V with choreographer Shayna portray an internal dialogue through movement. The track not only helped her navigate through rediscovering self-love, but to tell everyone not to be so hard on ourselves. Kiana V's music goes deeper than providing the right aesthetics. She expresses a deeper vision as an artist by combining lyrics and movement that match her message.
