Although it is true, RL Grime almost always hits the mark when expanding on his artistic vision.
The song brought us a breathtaking vocal performance from Daya. She showcased her flawless vocal prowess and took all of our hearts on this melodic heartthrob. Today, we present you the official music video for “I Wanna Know”. The video allows fans to enter the vocalists perspective of her lyrics. Directed by Megan Park, the film serves as a celebration of female empowerment
“I love the angle that Megan took on the messaging of the song; she took the desperation and hopelessness of the lyrics and spun them into more of an empowering feel through the gathering of supportive females in the space. Between that and the obvious late 90s/early 2000s references in the wardrobe and props, I think it was the most colorful and exciting shoot I’ve done to date. Excited for the world to see <3”- Daya
