Rising pop artist LIVVIA has partnered with Yahoo! Music to premiere the official music video for her debut single “Catch A Body” featuring Quavo of Atlanta rap trio Migos, which premiered on Complex on Jan. 18. The video, directed by Jay Martin (Shawn Mendes, Sabrina Carpenter, Nas, Cold War Kids, and more), is an action packed mini feature with LIVVIA portraying a special agent who seeks to eliminate a threat. LIVVIA stars as the female action lead, performing all of her own stunts including fight scenes which incorporate combat training she went through in preparation for the video. LIVVIA tells Yahoo! Music, “Sometimes when I write a song I visualize what the ideal music video would be. In this case, I immediately envisioned a scene from an action movie — James Bond, John Wick — because of the story within the lyrics.”
Within the first week of its release on Jan. 19, “Catch A Body” raced to the top of the streaming charts reaching No. 10 on Spotify’s “Viral 50” U.S. chart and No. 15 on its Global “Viral 50” chart. The song has amassed more than 630K plays and 345k unique listeners on Spotify and has been added to Apple Music’s “Pure Pop” radio in the USA; tastemaker playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday in the USA, Canada, Germany, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, and Norway; Spotify’s Hot Rhythmic and HIIT Pop playlists; Apple Music’s “Breaking Pop” in the USA and “Best of the Week” in France, Germany and Austria; as well as key playlists on Tidal, Deezer and Napster. Further, on LIVVA’s SoundCloud the song has accumulated in excess of 460k plays.
Originally from the Bay Area, now primarily living in Los Angeles, LIVVIA is a singer, songwriter, dancer, pianist and guitar player. When she was in her late teens, LIVVIA toured internationally as a solo artist with such artists as Jessie J., Meghan Trainor, The Jonas Brothers, and more. Now, just a few years later, LIVVIA has embraced a more developed sound on her debut single “Catch A Body.” The track is fun, flirty, and a little dangerous. “The fact that Quavo was inspired to jump on this track was a dream,” LIVVIA said. “The first time I heard his feature through the speakers I thought, ‘this is amazing.’ He totally bodied the song.” The infectious pop single is off of her forthcoming EP, which is produced by hit-makers Rock Mafia (Miley Cyrus, Eminem, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, ZEDD, and more) and due out early 2018. In the meantime, LIVVIA is completing her degree in Economics from the prestigious University of California, Berkeley.
