Leyla Blue – F*ck Yourself

NY artist Leyla Blue is the daughter of two photographers. She credits the city of New York for awakening her musical talent and becoming a professional songwriter at 16. She was accepted into the Clive Davis Institute of Music at NYU. She has taken a bold and empowering stance on her music talking about mental health, or misogyny.

“It’s a weird conundrum,” the singer admits. “But when I make sense of something myself and own up to it, I feel empowered. I can’t control the chemicals in my brain, but I can understand it and direct it towards something productive. My OCD and eating issues have absolutely what has made me who I am, so I’m just telling my story and hope that inspires others to be open about their own story.”

Her newest single is simple and strong. The guitar and vocals draw in the listener on this acoustic song about inequality and more. Blue is a recent signing to Island Records, and we look forward to more.
