Wafia Releases New Song “Pick Me”
- Australian singer-songwriter Wafia has unveiled a new song “Pick Me” with an accompanying lyric video.
Produced by John Hill and co-written by Caroline Ailin, and Chong the Nomad. The video was handmade by Wafia’s sister Ruaa Al-Rikabi.
The track is the first single of 2020 following “Flowers & Superpowers” released last October.
Wafia wrote about the song on social media, “I wrote this song with @carolineailin after coming out of a bad relationship last year. The break up period dragged out way more than it needed to but in all of our angry calls and texts I came to see how much he resented me and my career. The version of me he wanted was meek, obedient, not muslim and a lot less ambitious. We worked on my music together but the better my music would do, the tighter he’d hold on. This song really isn’t about him though. There was a version of me that existed last year that was almost prepared to be what he wanted just to stop the fights and the yelling. I’m not proud of that. I caught a glimpse of what that would look like 20 or even 5 years down the track and I knew how miserable and resentful I’d be. I didn’t want that for him but most of all for myself. Love shouldn’t make you pick like that and if it does, it’s not the right one.”
