LIVVIA is breaking through in the music industry.
Dropping the music video for her single “Damn,” the 24-year-old spoke with PEOPLE about her newest music video.
“‘Damn’ is an empowering song about making the right decision to leave a relationship even though it won’t be easy, but it’s also a very nostalgic song,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “The video plays off this nostalgia, and especially the line ‘wish we could start over but we can’t,’ by telling a love story in reverse: we start with the breakup and end with the first time they see each other.”
The video shows LIVVIA alongside her love interest as they go through a relationship in reverse.
“It’s a powerful juxtaposition of a breakup song and a montage of the blissful beginning stages of a relationship,” she adds.
