Today, Malaysian pop artist turned international star Yuna debuts the video for new album track “Pink Youth” featuring Little Simz; watch HERE.

Conceptualized by Yuna and Adam Sinclair, the video was written, directed and edited by Esteban Valdez, with executive producers Carl Jones and Brian Ash (The Boondocks,Black Dynamite).
“When I was writing ‘Pink Youth’, I wanted to celebrate being a girl,” explains Yuna, “When I was younger, I remember a lot of people didn’t believe in me just because I was girl trying to do something amazing… this song is for all the girls out there, who never got the encouragement & support they deserve.”
