Queer artist Ria Mae premieres music video for “Hold Me”

Written by Divine Magazine

Ria Mae debuts the video for her single “Hold Me” feat. Frank Kadillac. “Hold Me” is the second single from Ria’s forthcoming EP, set for release early 2019.

The dreamy visual depicts a yearning for a simpler time. It follows Ria as she wanders the colorful city in hopes of finding her way from the busy, social landscape of adulthood back to the pure, authentic ease of childhood. The video also features cowriter, collaborator, and friend, Frank Kadillac.

“The song started as a conversation between Frank, myself and Lowell,” says Ria. “We were sharing how lately we felt unsure of how to engage online and remain positive in the current social climate. We were talking about how easy life used to feel when we were young and how anxious a lot of our peers seem to be right now. I wanted the visuals to represent a deep long for peace from this deafening social landscape.”

Ria’s forthcoming EP is a follow-up to her critically acclaimed My Love. The EP’s first single, “Bend,” became an instant hit, skyrocketing to Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 10 at AC and Top 15 at CHR radio, reaching platinum certification status. Ria was nominated for “Pop Album of the Year” at the 2018 JUNO awards for My Love. Two years earlier, Ria also earned a JUNO nomination for “Single of the Year” for her platinum-selling hit “Clothes Off” that has over 13-million streams worldwide.

On November 7th, Ria began the second leg of her cross-Canada Never Coming DownTour and tomorrow she will play the Mod Club in Toronto. Click here to purchase tickets.
