“Take your loss and go! We don’t dwell on those!”Miah Travis
|Fun fact: “This song was written the day Miah was fired from his previous job, one of which paid a really good salary. That maybe had been one of the lowest points in Miah’s life at the time, [he] just could never catch a break; and we’ve all been there.”|
The ability to face trials and tribulations upfront to manifest your OWN destiny is what we like to call TRUE resilience. Throughout the brightly-coloured BluMajicBeatCo production, the 21-year-old artist’s combination of punchy wordplay and quotable hooks make for a persuasive and rather motivational record.
The Out Of Sight visual captures variations of the same outcome via various employers; termination. The detail to expression emphasizes looks of defeat, frustration, and irritation from each of the terminated employees. It almost appears to be a domino effect, as their terminations lead to another when the bartender decides to take a free shot with the 3 unemployed men, only for his boss to catch him in the act of doing so.
The Virginia artist has yet to put out a body of work, however, has recently appeared to be more and more active in exercising his catalogue. Starting up a series, as of late called Miah Mixes, the Empire artist really starts to provide glimpses of his full potential, flipping records such as Erykah Badu’s Fall In Love, Ty Dolla $ign’s record Purple Emoji, and even Kehlani’s The Way.
