LUCIIA is a Grammis-nominee singer-songwriter with one foot in Havana, Cuba, and the other in Malmö, Sweden. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “SAME THING NEW MAN” single, produced by Maleík Loveridge and Marl Farrell via WILHELMINA. The song is yet another sign of LUCIIA’s fast ascent to stardom.

“My self-confidence is starting to emerge, and the lyrics are written with a sense that what I receive in relationships is never enough. I feel misunderstood again and again, and with that comes men who don’t quite know how to approach me. In the song, I express that frustration.” – LUCIIA explained the meaning of the song
‘SAME THING NEW MAN’ is a silky-smooth jam that merges classic ‘90s R&B with LUCIIA’s cutting-edge sound. The song is another testament to the growth in global interest for LUCIIA after she was recently handpicked by Coldplay to open four consecutive shows at Ullevi Stadium in Sweden in July 2023. Furthermore, “SAME THING NEW MAN” is the enticing first single from LUCIIA’s upcoming EP, entitled, “WITH II EYES,” set for release in October 2023.

“The songs on the EP reflect a newfound perspective of mine. My vision has cleared up. My relationship with myself has in a way become more natural than my relationship with others. Previously, I struggled to accept myself or to know who I truly was, which led me to engage in destructive relationships. I suspect much of this stems from having a strained relationship with my father. As an adult, I have had to teach myself to be deserving of good things that come my way.” – LUCIIA explained
‘WITH II EYES’ is characterized by a warm and affectionate expression unique to LUCIIA. With the assistance of London-based producer Maleík, LUCIIA has managed to forge her own sound, where classic ‘90s R&B blends with the sonic image of the future. Many took notice of LUCIIA when she toured with the Swedish rapper, STOR. “That tour was a defining experience. I learned a lot, and that was where I was introduced to a larger audience.”
Last year, LUCIIA released her debut EP, “365,” which garnered media attention and earned her nominations for both the Grammis and Manifest awards in Sweden. In addition to finalizing her second EP, LUCIIA is now primarily focused on rehearsing with her London-based band for the Ullevi shows with Coldplay in July. “Ever since I was little, I dreamed of performing in stadiums. The fact that it’s now becoming a reality feels completely insane but very, very exciting.”
To say LUCIIA literally grew up on stage is no overstatement. Shaped by equal parts Havana, Cuba, and Möllevången, Malmö, her father toured the world with the Afro-Cuban All Stars, and her mother ensured her daughter participated in talent shows from the age of four.
The stage is where LUCIIA feels most comfortable and at ease, something she demonstrated in front of an international crowd at the Brilliant Minds Symposium in Stockholm, headlined Debaser with Dr Martens last year, and secured two official showcases during SXSW 2023.
