Diana Espir is a season two contestant of The Voice France but is gradually taking over of the U.S pop scene with the release of her female empowerment anthem “Side Chick.”
The single is a follow-up to her 2015 hit “Tomboy” featuring Grammy Award Winning rap artist Nelly, which earned Diana a coveted spot in the iHeartRadio Rising Star Program.
“Side Chick” was co-written by Victoria Monet and Tommy Brown as well as produced by Brown. The music video was co-directed by Diana Espir and Damien Sandoval.
Diana Espir is known for her phenomenal vocals and being more than a triple threat – a classically trained vocalist, pianist, dancer and songwriter. With her petite frame, flawless skin and British accent, Espir has the whole package–the sassy, independent and free spirit who is blind to labels on love, race, and gender.
The single is a pop-rhythmic female anthem track speaking to all the ladies or anyone who feels as though they must be treated fairly! It will have the ladies replaying it over and over with its compelling melodies and words about a girl demanding love and loyalty from her tricky man who is all trussed with another female.
“Side Chick’ is about spreading the empowering message of liberation and that all women deserve to be loved. In today’s society, young women don’t have to settle. They can command respect and not be afraid of going after their dreams of happiness,” says Diana Espir. “I hope that through this song, that we can break down stereotypes and labels and get to know the unique stories of women, not seek to divide us.”
The gorgeous Diana Espir will be portraying a classic Marilyn Monroe in her music video, who is well-known for being the other woman.
In the video, Diana plays a girl in love with a guy who is already in a relationship. The guy spoils her with diamond bracelets and necklaces, and he throws a private birthday party with just the two of them – for fear of being seen in public with another girl. But she grows tired of being the “side chick.” The girl seeks validation and wants the guy to man up and do the right thing.
Diana Espir will be releasing her breakthrough EP in early 2016.
“Side Chick” will be available for sale on October 23 on Google Play, iTunes and Amazon.com.
