UK artist Claudia Valentina has just dropped the steamy video for her new single “Sweat.” The single is from her forthcoming EP “Foreign Affair” out September 9th.
Made with Lost Boy, Tom Mann and Digital Farm Animals, the track sees Claudia Valentina’s sultry vocals glide across the powerful track as she gives an insight of what to expect on her upcoming EP ‘Foreign Affair’. ‘Foreign Affair’ was recorded by Claudia Valentina while she travelled back and forth between London, Guernsey, and Los Angeles with a collection of producers and co-writers from various backgrounds. The EP explores relationships/situations that young women find themselves going through. For Claudia, whenever things would get too complicated in one place, she’d simply pick up and go to another.
Speaking on the EP Claudia says “I'm fascinated with different sounds from around the world and as I’m from a small island, I longed to get out of there and discover a new world of sounds since I was young. Growing up in London and LA has allowed me to be exposed to different types of music through the people I work with. I’m inspired by the producers I work with and their own individual sounds and I learn so much about different cultures of music through them so I like to merge all these sounds together to create something that’s unique while putting my own musical stamp on everything to tie it all together. This EP is global sounding, it encompasses everything that has touched and inspired me in my life.”
Claudia Valentina, a confident 21-year-old superstar-in-waiting, is ready to become the new dominant force on the pop landscape. Born and raised in Guernsey, a small, picturesque island between England and France, Claudia spent her formative years singing, dancing and looking for any and every opportunity that would propel her into the music industry. After scoring her first break at age 10 in a production of Billy Elliot, she convinced her mother to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music full-time. In the studio she began to hone her craft with some of the most prolific pop producers in the business, with many of those sessions laying the groundwork for her self-titled EP, which was released in 2020. Her debut single “Seven” has amassed over 10 million streams across all platforms, with Billboard calling it a “stunning debut track” and TIME naming it one of "The Best New Songs of June 2020." Her single “4:15” received over 200K streams in its first week of release, with I-D proclaiming it “an absolute smash.” In addition to being selected by MTV UK as one of their Push artists for 2021, Claudia was named an artist to watch by British GQ, Hypebae and PEOPLE. Earlier this year, Claudia released “C’est La Vie,” the first off her new EP “Foreign Affair” coming in Sept 2022, giving us a taste of the energy and bangers to come.
