Ahead of her upcoming North American headline tour, bass prodigy and burgeoning pop icon Blu DeTiger unveiled her upbeat new single, “Elevator.” Using an elevator ride as a metaphor for escaping a draining relationship, she delivers a spacy, infectious kiss-off and revels in the instant boost to her outlook. Listen HERE.

“‘Elevator’ is an upbeat, tongue in cheek way of expressing how I feel when I’m stuck in the elevator (of life). It’s about moments when I’m down and need to be taken back up,” explains Blu DeTiger. “The song is about turning a bad situation, like being caught in an elevator with someone you don’t like or just feeling down, and going through it and getting past it. It’s encouraging. The lyric ‘I could be a big shot too’ reminds me that I can take control of my own journey and path.”

Blu redefines elevator music in the visual, which she shot in a Los Angeles elevator with director Christina Bryson (blackbear, Sedona, Bailey Baum). As she performs the track, the lift takes on and drops off an assortment of riders, including influencer Vinnie Hacker and musicians Alexander 23, Rebecca Black, Uffie, Chromeo’s Dave 1, Gavin Bennett (Bad Suns) andRex DeTiger (Blu’s brother).
