Cuja is a pop artist based out of Los Angeles and today Cuja has released her debut four-track EP ‘Vol. 1’.
Featuring tracks like ‘Maneater‘ (about an anthem for woman who work tirelessly), ‘New Friends‘ (a song about first-time butterflies), ‘Don’t Forget About Me‘ (inspired by a heart break up), and ‘Back Seat‘ (about being over fetishised); Cuja has put together a solid, simple EP that not only explores the aforementioned themes throughout, but Cuja also uses her EP to express her views about female empowerment.
Speaking on her own influences of living in the United States, Cuja explains how people “think that dark emotions stops you in your tracks and makes you completely immobile”, however, “there are plenty of people that can feel joy and still be sad.”
Cuja adds, “I’m so psyched you guys!”
“I’m so excited for you to hear these tracks together in one happy little place! Special thanks to @alinamusic for the insane production that brought my vision to life!”
After having given fans a taste of the EP with 3 previously released songs, Cuja’s ‘Vol. 1’ is just a taste of what Cuja has to offer the music world.
CUJA BREAKS DOWN ‘VOL. 1’:
“‘Maneater,’ inspired by all the powerful HBIC’s in my life, was written to serve as an anthem for the women who work tirelessly to combat the culture of slut-shaming and be empowered by their sexuality.”
“‘New Friends’ was inspired by those first butterflies you feel that make you want to risk everything in your life, especially your friends.”
“This song was inspired by a hard breakup my friend went through. It’s about moving on, but still hoping you forever haunt your ex.”
“I wrote “Backseat” about being over fetishized as an Asian-America women and treated like an exotic experience or mistress, then the boy goes home to his ‘real life’ and I’m just ‘sleeping in the backseat.'”
