Following her 2017 party anthem “PRE GAME” emerging artist Star Martin returns to kick off 2018 with some “KARMA.”
Produced by Maliredd and written by Star herself, the new single demonstrates what goes around comes around, and her lover needs to realize that “payback is a bitch,” she says.
In the black-and-white video, Star pushes back against being mistreated by her man, while encouraging him to be prepared for the repercussions of his actions.
“I’m so cool on you / Lets get that out the way,” she sings. “This is bigger than me and you / You gon’ learn today / All of your lying ways it’s a deadly game to play / The tables are turning / And it’s not in your favor babe.”
Speaking about the video, Star says: “The ‘Karma’ video is a rhythmic and sexy musical of real life situations. The moment you hear the guitar you are drawn into the contrasts of relationships, the anticipation turns into a heated wait of karma to do her work.”
“PRE GAME” and “KARMA” are just warmup records for what’s to come on the 3-part EP series ‘4 PLAY,’ that Star Martin is currently working on with producers Rill Noize, Squat Beats, Grammy Nominated Engineer/Producer Mike “Snotty” Miller, and Deats.
The R&B singer-songwriter was born into and raised by a family of musicians, who groomed her diva potential through her preteen years. Unlike the cliché story of having a voice developed in a small town Baptist Church, Star’s vocal expertise was cultivated by years of studio experience. With Beyoncé as her inspiration and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC as her mentor/God Mother, Star based her approach on authenticity, heritage, and real experiences.
