In March, we spoke to MAS1A (Masia One) in anticipation of her performance at Sing Jazz 2018, and she teased a music video that she said had a "CRAZY concept that aims to change the stereotype of Singaporean women". That video, for the comeback single for 'Time Wastin'', is out now.
Directed by Leona Ziyan, the video for 'Time Wastin'' fleshes out MAS1A's aesthetic direction for her forthcoming album Empress from the Far Eastside with glamour and opulence.
The video features Ragga Waka dancers with some fierce choreography at the dinner and mahjong tables, and numerous prominent women in Singapore's creative scenes: burlesque performer Sukki Singapora, artist Samantha Lo aka SKL0, DJ A/K/A Sounds of ATTAGIRL, creative consultant Tracy Phillips, and television presenter, emcee and writer Anita Kapoor.
And of course, there's MAS1A, rapping her ass off with panache in this hip hop-dancehall track produced by XXXSSS Tokyo (XLII & DJ SARASA). 'Time Wastin'' is the first single off Empress from the Far Eastside, which will be out September 2018.
