Montreal-born, Toronto-based singer/songwriter/actress Aiza (of Burundian heritage) is charting her own path as a genre-bending Afrobop queen making waves across Canada. Armed with her commanding vocal tone, unapologetic and self-empowering lyrics and undeniable charisma, Aiza dabbles in the audio-visual world seamlessly and on her new single “Sovereignty”, she reminds us of her higher status and strength as a black woman crushing restrictive societal rules and customs. Over the rousing and dynamic soundscape made up of rich bassline-driven grooves and lush anthemic textures, Aiza delivers a powerful statement of inner strength, resilience and divine feminity rooted in rich cultural values with an underlying theme of empowerment.
The anthemic tune also comes with a cinematic visual that captures Aiza in all spheres of life. From the colour-coordinated aesthetics, expressive dance routines, visually gripping set pieces and costumes, viewers are transported into her world where black women are celebrated.
“Sovereignty” is the title track of her new album, listen to it below.
