Hailing from Knoxville, Tennessee, but now living in Los Angeles, emerging pop artist Dina Renee has created her very own Barbie Dream World in the new video for her latest single, ‘What I’m Not Gonna Do’.
Dina Renee is a self-made artist, and has taught herself all the necessities of singing and songwriting, having followed her passion, which began in childhood. She takes her life experiences and puts them into her music, and her latest track, ‘What I’m Not Gonna Do’, is as catchy a pop single as you’re likely to encounter, with its bustling and electric rhythm, as well as its high production values making it perfectly radio-ready.
‘What I’m Not Gonna Do’ zeroes in on the realities of a toxic relationship, with the accompanying music video displaying all the emotionality that goes with it.
The clip follows along the song’s narrative, with the thought processes that one goes through when realising the severity of the situation. Expertly conveying the emotional expressions, Dina Renee shows her potential as a performer, and our anticipation for her further releases grows exponentially.
Speaking of the video, Dina Renee said,
“I wanted to create a dreamy Barbie world that I lived in with my Ken who happened to be gay. I wanted it to say to people that even in a paradise pink palace things aren’t always perfect and what is important in life is living your truth and stepping out and being who you really are. The song is called ‘What I’m Not Gonna Do’ to inspire people to know their worth and not make the same mistakes as before. This video was directed, styled, and produced by me and I put my heart in soul into it. I hope you guys will catch a glimpse of who I am as a person and an artist. And yes, I’ve actually fallen in love with a gay man.”
