In a long-form interview following the release of her debut single, “Flowerbomb”, Billboard Magazine called Siena a “pop music fiend ready to write songs that you love to hate.” It’s a backhanded but appropriate compliment for a quickly-rising artist who unapologetically values provocation and pushing boundaries as much as she values beauty. With 100,000 streams to the song and an opening slot for Doja Cat this month, it’s clear she’s onto something with her approach.
On October 9th, Siena released her racy, pop/R&B follow-up single, “Naked” that is laced in tones of sex and physical attraction. The song comes alongside an advocacy campaign on Siena’s Instagram for body confidence, calling out the politics behind “pretty”, and reclaiming ownership of female bodies from the industries that profit off false beauty constructs. It’s a song intended to make girls feel beautiful in a world that constantly lies to them about flaws and imperfection.
The last piece of the puzzle is the outstanding Naked visual directed by the young phenom, Nick Margetic, best known for his work with Tee Grizzley, Lil Yachty, Sada Baby, Sam Austins and more.
