CloudKid Presents Mia Vaile - Can't Tell Me Nothing
CloudKid welcomes Mia Vaile to the label — and her first track with us, ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,‘ a classic ’00s song with an new, inspiring, genre-transforming twist. Originally written and performed by rapper Kanye West, Mia’s version is a unique blend of melodic energy with dark and alternative tones to it that’s easily infectious, with lyrics that dig deep and a grungy beat to carry them.
She says, “My rendition of the song is raw and emotional, yet fun and upbeat…in an unconventional way. It’s a song about regrets in regards to wealth and material things. To me, this song acknowledges that there are much more important things in life than material possessions, yet it’s SO easy to get lost in the lavish lifestyle and lose sight of who you are and what is truly important to you. I personally added in the line // I don’t want to make anymore mistakes // to the chorus, because I wanted to hone in on this theme and make a point. I want listeners to really feel the struggle of juggling the money and fame with the more important little things in life that have an even greater value than those things.”
