Today, Billboard Chartbreaker and HITCO recording artist Dixie (Dixie D’Amelio) drops her new single “Wild”.The singer-songwriter, with over 625 million streams to date, co-wrote the track alongside producers Jenna Andrews and Stephen Kirk, most notably responsible for BTS #1 hit singles “Dynamite”, “Butter” and “Permission to Dance”. “Wild” releases today along with its official music video.
Additionally, Dixie has announced her highly-anticipated debut album, a letter to me, will be released on June 10, 2022, via HITCO. The album includes 12 tracks, including the hit single “Be Happy” which entered the Billboard US Top 40 Chart.
“This single is an amazing introduction to a letter to me – which really is an honest compilation of things I have experienced and learned from. I’m so proud of what this album is as it represents growth, not only personally, but professionally and musically.”
“Wild” is all about finding that true most wild version of yourself, not in a crazy partying way, but instead the song represents wild as a sense of freedom where you are able to be the most authentic, true version of yourself, feeling most comfortable and free. When co-writing the single, Dixie shared how she has a hard time being her true self at times, finding herself holding back most of the time unless she is surrounded by people she truly knows and trusts. The music video shows how she wants to break out of the personal prison she creates within herself, where she hides her full self, feeling caged in and unable to be free and wild.
The video, directed by Darren Bush (Big Sean, Snoop Dog), follows Dixie as she searches for her true ‘Wild’ version of herself. As she embodies different personas of herself when she is surrounded by different people which leads Dixie through a dark hallway where she finally breaks through onto the roof where she finds her most free, true and wild self. “Wild” is available to buy and stream on all platforms, you can watch the video HERE.
Dixie will join as a special guest on select dates on Big Time Rush’s “Forever Tour” this summer, shortly after her album is released in mid-June. She will perform on stage at Madison Square Garden for the second time on June 30th. For more tour information, please visit bigtimerushofficial.com.
