Dana Williams – “Stuff” music video
“Maybe, I’ll keep trying, maybe, I’ll keep wrestling the wind. Maybe, I’ll keep lying to myself in this life of sin. ‘Cause life is weird and life gets hard. You walk a mile but go a yard. I always make the same mistakes. Why can’t I give myself a break? I can’t find myself. I place it on the highest shelf with the rest of the stuff.” – lyrics
‘Stuff’ tells a heartfelt tale of a young woman who is searching for herself. Apparently, all these years of living in her skin have caused her patience to grow thin. Now, she’s feeling tired and her confidence is at an all-time low.
‘Stuff’ contains an emotional narrative, dreamy vocals, and rich harmonies. Also, the introspective tune possesses vibey instrumentation flavored with contemporary R&B and dancehall elements. Furthermore, “Stuff” was co-produced by Jordan Ware and L.3.G.I.O.N. who collaborated with Williams on her previous singles, “Underwater” and “Knife.”
“‘Stuff’ is about the difficulties of losing yourself to the expectations of others and then trying to get to know yourself all over again. It’s about feeling worn out as a Black female artist by the industry’s and society’s impossible standards and expectations.” – Dana Williams stated
Dana Williams is known for her introspective lyrics and stunning vocals. She effortlessly mixes soul, folk, and jazz genres—bringing a timelessness to current trends. Currently, she has over 700k Monthly Listeners on Spotify, and her song HONEY was a Spotify Fresh Find and just broke 4.5 million streams.
“Selecting imagery of myself as a child serves as a reminder to be kinder to myself. It reminds me of the passion I felt that drove me to become an artist and it also serves as a reminder of where I came from.” – Dana Williams
