Co-written and produced in Metropolis Studios (London) with David Stewart and Jessica Agombar, the pair behind BTS’ mega hit ‘Dynamite’, ‘7 Billion’ sees Marina recount the end of a toxic and painful relationship via a hauntingly honest pop ballad.
The video embodies the torment to leave a poisonous relationship or fight to save it whatever it takes. Trapped in silk, Marina is battling to rejoin her lover, after what she thought would be a last goodbye to this ‘twisted lullaby’. Described by the Daily Star as a ‘massive track’, ‘7 Billion’ already counts over 1 million streams across streaming services.
Speaking about the track, Marina says: ‘7 Billion is a representation of how lonely you can feel in a relationship, you know you’re with the wrong person because you’re both suffering, but you also know you won’t move on because you’re too scared to rebuild something new with someone new’.
Regarding the video, Marina adds: ‘The music video was shot in Paris a few weeks ago and I couldn’t be prouder of the result. It is full of hidden messages about toxic relationships in general and the aesthetic is exactly what I had in mind for ‘7 Billion’. I can’t wait for people to see it!’’
Praised by Pop Justice as ‘highly listenable’, ‘Twisted’ is a tapestry onto which Marina threads her tales of love. Full of deeply personal and honest moments across a sprawling palette of huge ballads, r&b and electronica, the album garnered support from the likes of the Daily Star ‘Rising Stars’, 1883, Euphoria, Atwood Magazine, and was featured in The Independent ‘Now Hear This’ playlist. It will be available on vinyl on January 8th.
In 2015, Marina Kaye’s debut single ‘Homeless’ reached Number 1 in France. Her following first album ‘Fearless’ also reached Number 1 in her home country, and is now certified triple platinum. Marina’s talent hasn’t gone unnoticed: Sia has written her a song, ‘Freeze You Out’ (listen here), and Marina has supported the likes of Lindsey Stirling and Thirty Seconds to Mars on their tours through France. Marina’s musical memoir isn’t yet complete. In truth, she’s only at the beginning of her story: one that nearly wasn’t told. Twisted marks an exciting new chapter for Marina.
