After being publicly launched last month, P-Pop girl group KAIA is now ready to seize the spotlight with the release of their pre-debut single ‘KAYA’.

Derived from the Filipino word which means finding one’s own courage, the upbeat electro-pop track tackles the importance of coping with the turbulent times, and being able to bounce back stronger amidst the adversities in life. The song is written by Maegan Adriano and KAIA themselves, who took inspiration from the hardships that they’ve gone through as a group. 

“We are nervous and excited at the same time,” the all-girl ensemble shares in a statement. “We are excited to show people what we’ve been working hard for in the past months, and we’re hoping that people will give love and support to our pre-debut single, KAYA.”

The release was accompanied by an official music video, shot by Jonathan Tal Placido.
