Daya Takes the Reins and Uses Her Voice For Upcoming Music
This past weekend fitness enthusiasts, music lovers, and trainers gathered in LA for a one-of-a-kind event: Propel Co:Labs Fitness Festival. For three days the event lined up an impressive roster of partnerships and collaborations which included: Mark Ronson X Speedplay, Julianne Hough X Simone De La Rue, Ludacris X Nicole Winhoffer, Icona Pop X Gideon Akande, Daya X Modelfit, and Yuna X Playlist.
We got to speak with a few of the artists participating in this event, including Daya! Most known for her collaboration with The Chainsmokers, "Don't Let Me Down," and her single which climbed to No.23 on the Hot 100 "Hide Away," this starlet is far from your ordinary teenager.
When it comes to staying fit she admitted that hip-hop and instagram is her go-to for staying motivated. "Music is such a crucial part in working out and fitness its really motivating," states Daya. "Seeing people with very fit bodies and working out every morning sort of gets me in the headspace! I actually was a runner when I was younger and I do 5k’s sometime. It’s the most therapeutic for me." With her active on-the-go lifestyle she confessed that she uses an app called 'abs and core,' to do a few core exercises while on tour.
In terms of new music, let's just say we can't wait either! "I am working on a couple of releases coming out soon. It fees like a new era for music," exclaimed Daya! "I took the reins on the writing and it will be a lot more of my voice coming through."
From a breakout single to perfecting her craft we have been lucky enough to watch her career take shape and we can't wait to see what she releases next!
