Breakout soul singer Niia has been on a roll since the release of her impressive debut album I in May.
After teaming up with Jazmine Sullivan on the remix to “Sideline” the songstress premieres a remix/new version of her lush ballad “California.”
Over the ethereal production, Niia sings about a relationship that has her questioning the decisions that lead her to this point.
“Came to California, nothing but those blue skies / Why’d I leave my old life? / Blame it on your grey eyes,” she sings. “Cause every time you need me I fall apart / And every time you trust me I break your heart / And every time you kiss me it’s just okay / And every time you’re with me I’m far away.”
The remix features rising west coast rapper Boogie, who adds his own conscious tale of growing past his old life and looking for brighter days.
“Lets draw a space and erase all the borders / Lets follow our faith and not follow no orders,” raps Boogie. “Losing myself while I’m chasing a fortune.”
