There is a chance you might already know Shuba, the genre-bending pop artist who has racked up 5.6 million followers on TikTok. Fans, including Celine Dion and Shakira, are drawn to Shuba’s compelling sound, which is inspired by artists like Ariana Grande, Eminem, and Freddie Mercury. By mixing the pop and rap stylings of these performers with the flair of Bollywood, Shuba is carving out a spot in the music world that she can call her own. Following the release of her last single, “Icon,” which spoke to Shuba’s aspirations as a first generation Indian-American artist, she is giving fans a moment of catharsis with her latest effort, “True Colors.”
A colorful and liberating breakup banger, “True Colors” has Shuba calling out an ex. Utilizing her pop-rap sound, Shuba throws down spiteful and witty lines before contrasting them with bubbly choruses. With lyrics like “You can tell all of your friends / That they can go to hell” and “If you want to break up with me, that’s fine / All you ever did for me was waste my time,” Shuba makes her feelings loud and clear. By the time she caps her feelings with, “All your true colors show,” we hope that the person being exposed knows to back off. You can check it out below.
About the single, Shuba shares,
“Sometimes you think you know someone, but it takes a breakup to show you what they’re really like. ‘True Colors’ is the song you scream in your car when this happens. It’s that awkward and angry moment where you realize the friends and person you were with don’t really have your back after all. The good this is, now you’ll never go back.”
You can listen to “True Colors” on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
