Gina Naomi Baez’s Drops Euphoric, Empowering Pop Single: “My Time”
Here to show us the power of inner strength, Gina Naomi Baez’s single “My Time,” produced by Matthew Tryba (Taylor Swift, One Republic, Ariana Grande), showcases the artist’s ability to fight through even the darkest of times and come out fighting.
Exploding in passion, the affecting vocal distortions sit under a tense, building, tower of synths into the ultimate euphoric pop song dancing in a dreamland of Baez’s stunning vocal might and tender tone.
Gina Naomi Baez is an actress, singer/songwriter, YouTuber, and influencer from New York City. With a flourishing acting career having landed roles in Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It, Orange Is the New Black, and numerous off-Broadway and regional theatrical productions, Baez has been a name on everyone’s radar. However, her love and passion for songwriting and music have always been the true driving force behind her creativity, with the artist using her platform to spread messages of positivity. Pushing boundaries and defying genres, Baez’s music beautifully blends pop, country, and folk, creating a sound reminiscent of Sia meets Taylor Swift.
“My Time” is the ultimate power ballad, providing a beacon of light and declaring words of wisdom. Dubbing this song as a pep talk to herself, the single was written following a period of intense self-doubt and low confidence.
“The music is inspired by my life experiences and facing bumps on this road we all call life, Baez confides. “Being a childhood cancer survivor, I’ve always felt like I’m a fighter and warrior. Literally, nothing can stop me.”
Embodying the strength of “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten, one of her inspirations for the single, “My Time” is no short of powerful. Written and produced alongside Matthew Tryba (Taylor Swift, One Republic, Ariana Grande), the song enters with a delayed vocal distortion giving off 1989 Taylor Swift-esque energy. The dynamics take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion, as the track builds with subtle, electro, raindrop synths and echoing vocals flooding the soundscape, Baez lets go, showing us her stunning, power-house vocals. The inspiring artist shares,
“If you’re feeling down, I think it’s a song that can bring back your confidence and help you find your inner strength.”
Baez has also seen great success with her YouTube channel, which has built an impressive following. Her infamous “Lizzo’s Truth Hurts x Hocus Pocus” parody music video went viral after Lizzo herself and Bette Midler reposted it. The channel features creative, unique original music videos, covers, and parodies of popular songs and has garnered worldwide recognition. Propelling in all areas of the industry, Baez is clearly a force to be reckoned with.
