Nova Miller Releases New Music Video for “Man's World”
- Back in October 2020, Swedish singer-songwriter Nova Miller released her sophomore EP “The Passion” for the first time in two years.
The EP comprises of 8-track and is inspired by '70s -'90s pop, R&B and disco sound.
From the EP, she dropped a new music video for “Man's World” on January 15, 2021. Directed by Niko Lamere.
“This music video was shot during the last couple of weeks of 2020, a year where we've all had to make a lot of adjustments,” Nova Miller said of the video. “As an artist, there was so much that I wanted to express while shooting this video since this year was so transformative for the world. “Man's World” is really all about taking control of your feelings and finding the inner strength to not need anyone and not let anybody tell you who you are and what you can and can't do. I wanted to tell that story using the symbolism of being in the mechanic shop and channeling my inner motorcycle baddie. The bike is a metaphor for you to fix you, fix yourself. Fashion-wise, we took inspiration from the gorgeous 90's supermodel era. I'm so grateful for my wonderful team special shoutout to my stylist Xavier LeBron, director Nikko LaMere, manager Lolene, and day to day manager Vendela for always making my visions come to life.”
- She told PAPER Magazine about the song, “If a boy don't make it better, why [do] they say it's a "Man's World"? I wrote this song right before I had one of the most emotional conversations of my whole life. My fitness mentor — Daryl from the Dungeon of Discipline (Yeah, they don't play around) — looked me in the eyes and said, "You better work harder, Nova. This is a man's world." It stuck with me, and it really shook me up for days. It gave this song so much meaning, and so, so much passion. I'm not gonna be okay with being underestimated for being a woman, or young, or ambitious. I needed to hear this when I wrote it. Like, Nova, you don't need a man to validate you. You can tell yourself you are amazing. I'm gonna do my thing until someone comes along and makes it better. We gotta meet in the middle, I'm not settling anymore.”
