“Hazy” is a new record by Washington, D.C. artist Lua Faye. While the R&B-pop track sounds so chill and upbeat, the lyrics portrays quite the opposite.

“…it’s funny because the song is pretty upbeat, it’s chill but the message is deceptively sad. I wrote it about my best friend who no longer wanted to speak to me. It was quite literally driving me crazy, hence the song title: Hazy. “Lua Faye
The singer’s emotion-filled vocals doesn’t betray her gloomy lyrics, either. The music video for “Hazy” will drop on August 22.
