Alternative R&B artist Yuna debuts the music video for latest single “Make A Move,” a shimmering, out-of-this-world performance that KCRW calls “smooth and sexy.” The video finds the international singer-songwriter immersed in deeply saturated hues of blue, pink and white amongst intricate settings of florals and stars. Directed by her husband Adam Sinclair, the luminous video pairs well with Yuna’s rich, silky vocals and laid-back energy. “Make A Move” is the latest single from Y2, which is the most recent installment of Y5, Yuna’s full-length album due out in the fall that is being released as a series of five projects over the course of the year. Y1 and Y2 are out now.
Yuna says of the new single, “‘Make A Move’ is about meeting someone for the first time and you find yourself constantly thinking about them. You know that even if this person knows your name, it’s not enough to spark something real, you have to make the first move to talk to them and do something before it’s too late or before the situation becomes a ‘could-have-been’.”
Yuna was recently featured on The Recording Academy's "Positive Vibes Only" for an intimate at-home performance of her single "Pantone 17 13 30" (watch here) and she also surprised audiences at Coachella earlier this spring for a guest performance with Tokimonsta.
After years of major label backing, Yuna is releasing Y5 as an independent artist, producing her own songs and operating on a release schedule that gives fans time to fully digest the lavish soundscape she's cultivated.
In addition to Yuna’s innovative new release strategy, she has long been a trendsetter on the global fashion scene, using her platform to talk about biased beauty standards in Asia and making modest clothes more fashionable.
Known for music that speaks to the soul, with a breezy and effervescent tone that organically blends pop, folk, and R&B Yuna’s sound is entirely her own. Her personally charged songs are deeply felt and melodically irresistible, combining her engaging voice and expressive songcraft with imaginative production to create wholly distinctive music that's won her accolades around the globe.
