Saya Returns To Music By Bearing Her Soul In ‘Vulnerable’ New Dance Anthem ‘SICK’

Saya Returns To Music By Bearing Her Soul In ‘Vulnerable’ New Dance Anthem ‘SICK’

After years away from making music, alt-pop star Saya kicks off her comeback with an electro-dance track that sees her ‘explore emotions that I’ve been afraid to admit’ she had.

It’s been a while since the world was blessed with a new song from Saya. After debuting in 2016 with her mix of R&B and alternative pop, she fast became a viral sensation, but for years, it’s been quiet. That silence ends today with “SICK,” her first new song in years. Oh, and Saya doesn’t come back with a whisper – but a roar! With shadow-laced vocals and a production that’s as dark and alluring as midnight, “SICK” has Saya confront a lover (“you’re sick as f-ck”) before making a startling admission (“and I like it.”)

The message of the song runs deep for Saya. “After taking so much time off from releasing music, I wanted to give my listeners something they haven’t heard from me,” she tells HollywoodLife, “which was this type of vulnerability expressed throughout the track. It always takes me a long time to process my sadness, and I haven’t always been able to elaborate on those feelings into a song. I’ve had a wall up for so long that writing ‘SICK’ was a huge release for me.”

“The chaotic story revolves around several different instances and emotions I’ve felt at times in love. SICK allowed me to explore emotions that I’ve been afraid to admit to myself, and in a sense, let me own them,” she adds.

For Saya’s fans, “SICK” is a welcomed return, a resurrection of a career that exploded with 2016’s “Wet Dreams.” Shortly after turning heads with this debut, she released a handful of follow-up tracks that culminated in a pair of EP’s – Chills & Thrills and Sugarcoated. After falling out of love with music due to a bad experience with the music industry, Saya rediscovered her passion after a 2019 songwriting session, the same that produced “SICK.”

Since then, the Toronto artist has been busy putting together a new EP, READY TO BURN. The project, due out in 2022, continues the themes of Saya reclaiming her power, dealing with toxic relationships, and the pain of power dynamics – all while incorporating new sounds and expanding on her sonic portfolio. Saya is back, she’s better than ever, and we like it.

SICK” is out now.

Adele & Rich Paul: How They’re Feeling About A Potential Engagement & Marriage

Adele and boyfriend Rich Paul are reportedly ‘in love’ and are starting to think about their future life together, a source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.

Adele, 33, is head over heels for boyfriend Rich Paul, 39, and apparently, things are heating up between the couple. “Adele and Rich are in love,” an insider revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife. “They both find each other great driven people that really work hard. That is something that inspires both of them. She is so charming and lights up any room she is in, and he lets Adele be Adele. The success of him being an agent is to let his clients shine while he is in the shadows so to speak getting everything else done.”

The source went on to reveal that the sports agent, with whom Adele has been pictured a lot lately, also “finds commitment very important,” and that the couple are considering their future –while trying to stay grateful for their present, of course. “They would welcome [the idea of marriage] but there is literally zero rush for that to happen and is not on the horizon as they are really enjoying being boyfriend and girlfriend and getting to know each other more and more each day.

The source went on, “They make it simple for each other and they want to be in that sort of relationship right now before they take it to the next level. It is nice to think about, but they are currently happy with where things are at this moment.”

Another insider also recently spoke with HL about how “connected” the pair has been in the past few months they’ve been dating. “Adele is having such an amazing time with Rich, they really have connected over each’s sense of humor, and they really admire each other’s work ethic,” the source revealed. “They allow time to spend together and also give each other plenty of space so they are not overbearing with each other.”

Another insider also discussed the couple’s upcoming holiday plans on Nov. 5. “Coming into the holiday season, she is really looking forward to making more and more memories with Rich,” they revealed. “It is not a honeymoon phase type of situation; it is two people that have clearly found the right person and it genuinely just works.”

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were two of many celebrities who attended fashion designer Virgil Abloh’s memorial at the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Chicago on Monday.

Kim Kardashian, 41, and Kanye West, 44, appeared in the same place at the same time this week when they both showed up to Virgil Abloh‘s memorial at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, IL. The exes, who filed for divorce in Feb., were photographed separately at the ceremony for the late fashion designer, who died of cancer at the age of 41 on Nov. 28, and seemed to try and not pay attention to cameras. They both wore black outfits and sunglasses and were seen walking at the location as onlookers surrounded them.

In addition to Kim and Kanye, others stars that were seen at the memorial included Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Drake, Frank Ocean, and more. Tyler the Creator delivered the eulogy and Lauryn Hill gave a performance.

Before her appearance at the memorial, Kim has been making headlines for her outings with Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. The two were seen holding hands on at least one of the outings and it’s been reported that they’re casually dating. A source previously told us that Kanye was “put off” by their speculated relationship and the pics of them holding hands and does “not like it.”

Kanye was really put off by Kim holding hands with Pete and he did not like it at all. He asked Kim to ‘please refrain’ from showing public display of affection with anyone until their divorced is finalized. He told her that it doesn’t look good for their family and it doesn’t look good for her, or in the ‘eyes of God,’” the source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.

Kim and Pete were first spotted together after she hosted SNL and did a sketch with him that included an onscreen kiss. “They were having a good time — you could see that there were sparks,” another source EXCLUSIVELY revealed about their time on the set together. “You can tell they became quick friends while she was on the show.”

Selena Gomez ‘Dying’ Over Working With Taylor Swift Squad Pal Cara Delevingne On ‘Only Murders’ S2

Selena Gomez revealed she’s having ‘so much fun’ working with her pal Cara Delevingne on the second season of ‘Only Murders in the Building.’

Selena Gomez, 29, just revealed how “excited” she’s been working with her friend Cara Delevingne, 29, on the second season of Only Murders in the Building. “I’m so excited! We just did our first day together yesterday and it’s so much fun working with your friends,” she shared with Extra TV on Dec. 6. “We had never worked together — or, actually, we did a long time ago, but on something completely different — [so] it’s so fun, we were just dying laughing most of the time because we just know each other so well.”

The Texas-born actress shared that she didn’t exactly ask showrunners for her friend to be on the show, but that “they actually wanted [Cara]” and she, as one of the executive producers on the show, was able to give them “a little push.”

Fans know Selena and Cara as part of the Taylor Swift squad of gals, as both stars famously made an appearance in the singer’s star-studded music video for “Bad Blood” in 2015. They’ve remained friends for some time, recently having a sweet, silly moment at the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 17. The two actresses were put on the jumbotron in the middle of the game, and Selena sweetly leaned over and gave the model a little kiss on the cheek. The duo may have taken note from Selena’s other adorable video with their mutual pal Taylor, when the two took a cute TikTok together backstage during Taylor’s hosting gig at SNL.

A source close to Selena EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife on Sept. 20 that Selena felt like her role as Mabel Mora in the crime comedy with Steve Martin, 76, and Martin Short, 71, could be something of a career-defining part. “After all the things Selena has done in the business both in acting and in music, she feels like she finally has realized where she wants to be and that is thanks to the success of Only Murders In The Building,” the insider shared. “To have worked and to be working with Steve Martin and Martin Short on something that has been so well received she feels it has and will catapult her into roles that she really wants to do.”
