22 Cents Less Video Shoot

My goal as a songwriter is to inspire – to move people, whether it be through the chord progression, the powerful message behind the lyrics, or the tone in which I sing my lyrics. As someone who shamelessly loves pop, as well as its sub-genres (pop/RnB, indie pop), l strive to make a memorable and unique sound differentiating myself from other artists we hear on the radio every day. My songs should be catchy and fun – easily fit for any demographic, but they need to be from the heart and relatable.

My next single, 22 Cents Less, will especially fit to these characteristics, and I couldn’t be happier with how the progress is going!

This past weekend, we shot its music video here in Boston. This was the most professional music video shoot I’ve had…a make-up artist, a large crew and everything.

The incredible production team, Half Lit Smile even hired actors! I had the pleasure of meeting many different women (actresses), all different backgrounds, ages, races, ethnicities.

The production team was very professional, sticking to a by-the-minute schedule. One of the most exciting things at the shoot was the fact that the producer got a hold of Beyoncé’s mic (yes, her ACTUAL mic) that she used on tour for the video! Like what. How does that happen. I put a picture below. That’s probably the most valuable mic I’ll ever use in my life.

There were two full days of shooting the scenes before hearing, “That’s a wrap.” I don’t want to spill TOO many details…those can wait until the final release. But let’s just say the theme is FEMINISM. 🙂

22 Cents Less, the song and music video is set to be released at the end of October (no specific day yet, but it will be announced soon).

lots o’ love,

mina
