Now Gia Lily will expand upon her blossoming reputation as she shares her brand new single ‘Good Enough’. Moving into a moodier, melancholy sound without losing any of her instant pop addictiveness, Gia’s voice flows with grace, whole-hearted emotion, and an abundance of talent. Listen HERE.
Gia says, “‘Good Enough’ is about looking back on a relationship where you put the other person first despite going through your own ride of life struggles. You’re constantly bleeding into the other person’s issues, which makes you feel like you’re not good enough. It’s an emotionally-charged song with a realisation that you are and always have been more than just good enough.”
‘Good Enough’ also delivers upon Gia’s desire to bring guitar solos back into modern pop, with a searing performance from her boyfriend Callum Rich. Callum is building a following on TikTok for his talented guitar demonstrations as well his takes on songs old and new. Fans are definitely invested in the couple’s relationship, and everytime they appear together they’re always greeted by comments declaring them to be “The cutest couple on TikTok!”
The song was first developed when Gia wrote its chorus and pre-chorus on the piano in her bedroom. The song was subsequently elevated during writing sessions with Lucan Mills and its producer Rhys Fletcher.
As an artist who has become known for connecting with fans for online collaborations, it was a natural next step for Gia to ask fans to participate in the lyric video for ‘Signs’. Featuring lip-syncing fans, a guitarist, and a surprisingly cooperative pup, the result was a wholesome celebration of growing initial international following. That continued as the year ended too, with numerous fans posting ‘Signs’ or Gia Lily as part of their Spotify Wrapped lists for 2021 – despite that being her only single that was out at the time.
Making music that’s at turn both sassy and sad, the Londoner is influenced by empowering, high impact artists such as Charli XCX, Dua Lipa and Miley Cyrus – but also with an inspiration for longer-standing icons such as Gwen Stefani and Freddie Mercury. Her own talent is also being recognised by those in the know, following collaborations with Lewis Gardiner (Megan Thee Stallion, Ellie Goulding), Jonathan Quarmby (James Arthur, Tom Walker) and Leo Stannard (KC Lights, CamelPhat). Those sessions have resulted in a growing catalogue of potential hits, which Gia will be unleashing in the near future.
In addition to her talents as a performer and a songwriter, Gia is also rising in the worlds of acting and modelling. She featured in ‘Cognition’ alongside Andrew Scott and Jeremy Irvine, and will star in the upcoming sci-fi feature film ‘Light’.
