Following her two latest stellar single releases ‘Body Pump’ and ‘Warrior’ – taken from her now confirmed forthcoming debut solo album ‘Renaissance’ – Aluna delivers the goods yet again, this time with the help from her friends Princess Nokia and Jada Kingdom for ‘Get Paid.’ A feel-good dancehall summer jam with an important message, ‘Get Paid’ “is an aspirational celebration about black women and women of color getting paid, in opposition of the reality that we are consistently undervalued for our work.” Aluna explains. “On the other hand, this is a song about believing we deserve to get paid because as society keeps telling us we are worthless, we internalize that notion, which is almost more damaging because it stops us from advocating for ourselves.” “The song is such a vibe, as soon as I heard it I just had to jump on it. Aluna is so dope and an icon too.”Jada Kingdom continues. “This record is an instant classic, I’m so glad to be a part of it — dancehall to the world!” Lastly, Princess Nokia reveals, “I loved working on this song with Aluna, I’ve admired her work for years. I was happy to collaborate on a dancehall song that is nostalgic to my childhood and bring a new version to life with these talented women. The record is fun and daring, and hope all of our fans enjoy this.”
