Genre-bending artist Nilüfer Yanya has dropped a new video for a rework of her Miss Universe track, “Heat Rises” titled “H34T RISES.”
“The original song ‘Heat Rises’ came together over a year or so, maybe,” Yanya explains in a statement. “I felt really lucky I was able to work with Dave Okumu on this, there was a lot to learn just being in the room with him. I had the rough demo and beat on my phone for maybe a year, but it wasn’t until the lyrics were fully realised that it really took shape as a song for me. The original track works perfectly in an album but when I decided to re-release it as a single, I thought a few changes to the mix and structure might help it jump out more.”
The accompanying video looks at the fictional storyline about the dystopian organization WWAY Health frequently mentioned throughout Miss Universe.
