NSTASIA & D*L*P – “Couch” music video
The Shadae Lamar Smith-directed video finds NSTASIA draped in crystals while dancing joyfully across a spacious loft evoking feelings of comfort and serenity. She blesses her space with sage and summons bright positive energy to wash over her.
‘Couch’ speaks on finding peace of mind and space to think within the chaos of the world. The likable tune contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the song possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with a contemporary R&B aroma. Furthermore, “Couch” was personally chosen by Pharrell Williams and KP as the lead single from the compilation album, entitled, “i am OTHER”.
“Sometimes the best thoughts come from right here on the couch.”
‘Couch’ was one of 12 outstanding songs selected from a contest for Pharrell Williams’s ‘i am OTHER’ and SoundCloud’s “i am OTHER, Volume 1” album. The compilation was born from the post-coronavirus outpouring of creativity. Since then, it has landed on Apple’s “Alt-R&B” playlist and made way for D*L*P to partner with SoundCloud in launching his own label, The Future Will Bang.
“The very talented D*L*P sent over a loop and instantly the lyrics and melodies came to me. It inspired me to speak my truth regardless of what others think. Being a part of this amazing compilation motivates me to continue allowing myself to show vulnerability through my music. This is just another confirmation that we are hardly ever the only ones who feel the way we feel.” – NSTASIA stated
NSTASIA has accumulated over 120 million streams online and over five million fans on Spotify. Her undeniable skill as a songwriter and her ability to create indelible songs has positioned her as one of tomorrow’s most promising new stars. Her debut single, “Trap Or Die”, is the #4 most shared song on Spotify in the U.S. Followed by her second single, “Parachute” (produced by Skrillex). Also, she has a 5x’s platinum record and a #1 spot on the Italian Billboard Charts for 14 weeks with Italian rapper Salmo.

“Producing ‘Couch’ was special. The energy of the melody just took me somewhere else mentally. NSTASIA always finds a way to inspire when we work. It was amazing to find out we were selected by Pharrell and KP to be a part of ‘i am OTHER’ compilation album, a true honor. In addition, I couldn’t be more happy than to launch my label, The Future Will Bang, with this special single release and to announce my partnership with SoundCloud.” –D*L*P stated
