From a young age, it was clear that Shantaia was meant to be an incredible country artist. Before she was nine years old, Shantaia was singing, playing guitar, and writing music that made a lasting impression. After gaining a strong presence in her community during her teen years through performing, Shantaia graduated from high school and continued to pursue her dream. Her music is now being recognized on an international level, with fans discovering her sound on country radio stations and outlets all around the world. When she is not playing iconic venues, making appearances at festivals, and writing with some of the biggest names in country music, Shantaia is busy releasing moving songs and music videos, like her latest “Broke to Brand New.”
An exciting country pop masterpiece, “Broke to Brand New” finds Shantaia reflecting on a past relationship. Over steady rhythms and strong chords, Shantaia tries to move on, singing “Left me in the dark and it’s all coming back / I’m just so sick of being sad” and wonders, “Will I always feel jaded, like love’s overrated?” It all leads up to the catchy chorus, where Shantaia asks, “How do I go from feeling broke to brand new?”
In the music video for the single, we see Shantaia surrounded by very breakable objects, such as a vase full of flowers and a glass lamp. With an ominous baseball bat in hand, Shantaia channels her anger into smashing these objects, breaking them one by one. It is a creative take on the message of the song, with these broken objects representing Shantaia’s broken feelings. You can check it out below.
