Sophia Messa – “moneydontfixlonely”
“Introducing an artist visually is never an easy job, but I wanted to make something that was true to Sophia and her message. I wanted to capture the beauty in her pain and loneliness as well as her strength and growth. We combined references from Ancient Greek statues, French paintings, and ‘60s cinema to create a visual poem about self-love.” – Daddy, director
‘moneydontfixlonely’ tells the tale of a lonely young woman who is in a relationship with a guy who possesses wealth.
Apparently, she starts to feel like one of the expensive items which he owns. And that troubling thought doesn’t sit too well with her.
All she wants is his love, and what she desires most is for him to entertain her with his presence and hold her tight within his warm embrace.
‘moneydontfixlonely’ contains a relatable storyline and ear-welcoming vocals. Also, the bubbly tune possesses luxurious instrumentation produced and co-written by Ido Zmishlany (Camila Cabello, Demi Lovato).

“‘moneydontfixlonely’ is about our culture’s obsession with chasing after material things and the wrong dreams, instead of real and meaningful relationships. The video is an expression of loneliness and rebirth. In the video, I walk through an empty house to discover the value of true connection with others and with myself. I’m so excited to finally share this with the world.” – Sophia Messa
