It was only a year ago when I was browsing through the music department at Target and came across the debut EP of Pittsburgh singer Daya. Like most at the time, I had no idea who she was but once I heard “Hide Away” and “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” I knew the world would be hearing a lot more from her. Turns out, I was right, as it’s pretty obvious that pop radio would be crazy not to embrace everything the emerging 17 year-old singer has to offer. Perhaps electronic duo, The Chainsmokers, had something to do with this as their collaboration with the singer on “Don’t Let Me Down” has dazzled the masses since its late winter release, and justifiably so!
From the anthems for the ladies with class to girl power to making the boys work a little harder, the sky’s the limit for this girl and with the release of her debut album, Sit Still, Look Pretty, on October 7, we’re finally going to get to see what she’s made of. Of course, this is only the beginning and we’re excited to see where her career goes from here.
