Indie singer-songwriter PIA MIA has teamed with Vevo for the premiere of her debut video “Red Love.” The stunning video was shot in the Mojave Desert by director Damien Sandoval (The Dream) and serves as the companion clip to Pia’s new single, which Ryan Seacrest premiered on his official site and which iTunes recently spotlighted with the top position in their “Ahead of the Curve” pop section.
The flurry of media activity surrounding “Red Love” arrives weeks after Pia lit up the internet with the release of a home video that showed her seated between Kanye West and Drake at a dinner party belting out an a capella cover of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” The clip was shot by Kim Kardashian and has already racked up more than a million views.
“I had no idea Drake was going to be there,” Pia told MTV News. “We’re in the middle of the meal and Kanye just, like, calls me out and says ‘Drake, Pia’s a singer.’ It was really nerve-wracking because Kim and Khloe (Kardashian) were sitting across from me videotaping. I never thought I’d be able to sing Drake his song, so that was something I’ll remember forever.“
The Guam-born Pia originally built a diehard fanbase by posting cover songs on YouTube, amassing close to a quarter-million Twitter followers, almost a million Instagram followers and racking up more than 10 million YouTube views. She’s currently putting the finishing touches on an EP set for release on Christmas Day. “It’s a mixtape of songs I’ve been working on,” says Pia. “I want it to be a holiday gift for my fans.”
Fans can also access behind-the-scenes footage from Pia’s recent trip to Dubai, viewable at PiaMiaMusic.com.
