An ode to those that have done us wrong, “New Bitch, Who Dis?” shows Cuja reclaiming the energy in her life and giving the middle finger to anyone who tries to stand in her way. After finding herself shrouded by negative experiences in the music industry, Cuja enlisted the help of two fellow powerful women, producer Alina Smith and artist/songwriter Elli Moore. Together they created an impassioned yet relatable song that highlight Cuja’s sultry vocals. “I was feeling like I needed to be heard and if people were uncomfortable or didn’t like it, that’s on them,” Cuja explains.
Inspired by other girl-power artists such as Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa, Cuja has put her own spin on pop, creating a shimmery, electrified sound that serves as her authentic storytelling canvas of heartbreak, love, pleasure, and pain. Cuja has a drive to succeed like no other. Part of her drive stems from her frustration with the lack of Asian-American representation in the music industry. She hopes her story as a Filipina-American artist will inspire others to pursue music and encourage the music industry to invest in opportunities that promote inclusivity for all minority groups. After releasing her debut EP titled Vol. 1 on June 21, Cuja is ready to roll out more heavy-hitting singles that touch on the complexity of life.
