Stacey Kay – “New Type”
“A few years ago, I met with a ‘big wig’ in the music industry who said I had to lose 90 pounds, get a space between my legs, and change my hair and my clothes. He told me the way I looked wasn’t accepted in the ‘pop music industry’ and it was going to be too hard for me.” – Stacey Kay
‘New Type’ tells an inspiring tale of a woman who addresses the beauty standards within the entertainment industry. Also, the song contains a relatable storyline, heartfelt vocals, and lush instrumentation perfumed with a commercial pop scent.

“I’ve never been a fan of the saying ‘it’s what’s on the inside that counts’ because then that implies that the outside may not look good. I’ve always thought that so many people of all different shapes and sizes are hot. So why do I think that I have to look different for people to think I’m attractive?” – Stacey Kay
