Lisa Danaë has released her new single “STARLET,” which highlights her personal journey while forging her own path in the music industry. She sets herself apart from other artists within the pop realm, as she’s established her own unique style, creating dark pop compositions that shine brightly with words of hope and encouragement. This track features an infectious chorus and inspiring message of perseverance. The song describes the challenges that Danaë has experienced along the way, facing the pressure to follow the masses (“I wanted to be just like you. / Always so glamorous, posing for the cameras.”) and receiving criticism and negativity from cynics (“They say I’ll never make it, like do I have a Plan B? / ‘Cause it sounds kinda risky, like a pop princess pipe dream.”) who aim to bring her down and dissuade her from pursuing her passion. Despite these opposing forces, the dark pop princess has learned to embrace her identity and stand resilient in the face of adversity. Empowered by her struggles, Danaë seeks to connect with her fans, lift them up in their difficult times, and let them know that they are not alone. The message to take away from “STARLET” rings clear: “Be who you want to be, and ignore the ones who doubt your ability to succeed in life. You are in control and you will make it. Become your own starlet.” Through her artistry, Danaë exhibits her strength with her honest voice, independence, and passion for her craft. “STARLET” is a gem of an anthem, showcasing Danaë’s fierce spirit of determination and starlit power as she works hard to turn her dreams into a reality.
“I’ve learned to let the hurt melt away.
Brush off every word that they say. /
‘Cause I’m a starlet,
Baby that’s me.
Shining bright for the world to see /
I’m a starlet.
Feelin’ so free,
When I’m putting on a show.”
