With already tens of thousands of streams online, not to mention being added to more than forty Spotify playlists and supported by blogs such as Synth Pop Lover and Come Here Floyd, LA-based artist Maripo$a has now returned to unveil the official video for her latest hit single ‘Call Me Back’.
Produced by Fantom, ‘Call Me Back’ looks to take the bold and exciting alt-pop direction of artists like Charli XCX and Clairo to glittering new heights. Filled with bright and bouncing production, alongside her own sugary sweet vocals, the new offering is the perfect remedy to get you through these troubling times.
The new self-directed video, working alongside videographer Mike Williamson, sees the artist escape through a number of bright and glamorous guises that fit her own multifaceted direction.
Speaking about the new single, she said, “‘Tell me you know something about love, tell me you know how to pick me back up.’ I wrote this song during quarantine and knew the world needed a positive vibe for the summer. I took myself out of the sadness and placed myself in the perspective of a perfect summer time. At first listening you’d assume i’m speaking about another person here but I’m really speaking about myself, and being able to take myself out of a bad time and create my own happiness. The song is about love, loving yourself and sharing that love with someone special. Remembering to live in the moment and just have fun, even when that seems impossible.”
Maripo$a is a singer, songwriter, and stylist who grew up in Miami, Florida. Music has helped her understand herself and get through everything, good and bad. It’s something she’s been passionate about for as long as she can remember. From singing karaoke to her family in my living room to building her own home studio in Los Angeles. She was taught from a young age to figure things out on her own due to hardships growing up and writing and singing is and always has been her escape from those dark times. She wouldn’t change anything because it molded her into the strong, passionate artist she is and aspire to be, and she is forever grateful for that.
She has always had an itch for a creative outlet; With having multiple passions like photography, modeling, styling, writing and singing. After graduating high school four years ago with musical theatre experience and a poem publication, she combined her passions into one and created Maripo$a. Her brand, her creativity, emotions, music all in one. She then moved to LA two years ago to follow her dreams where she accomplished her first and now second music video, released four singles (which her last two hit over 30k streams) became a stylist to lots of people she looks up too, and was able to meet and learn from artists that have always inspired her.
Her number one purpose is to follow her dreams. She wants to be able to inspire people who have been through difficult times and to know that anything is possible. There’s always light at the end of the tunnel and she wants to be that reminder to the world, within herself, her music, and everything she lives for.
“Maripo$a (which means butterfly in spanish) symbolizes the growth of life, from unhitching out of my cocoon to spreading my wings and soaring into making my dreams a reality.”
