If quarantine has you feeling down, popstar Ashlee Keating’s new single is here to get you dancing and make you say “YASSS.”
The Billboard chart sensation, dancer, songwriter, and actress’s newest song, “YASSS,” racked up nearly 150K streams on Spotify, and now the anxiously awaited music video is out.
“YASSS,” which is a single from her upcoming EP (set to drop this summer), is a fun pop/dance track that emphasizes the importance of self-confidence. With its upbeat sound and catchy lyrics, “YASSS” is the perfect quarantine dance party track.
Ashlee is highly regarded in the LGBTQ+ industry as a supporter and activist, and she wrote this song with her LGBTQ+ friends in mind – she wants to give them the confidence through her music that they give her when she performs.
“We’ve gone through some tough times during the last few months, and I wanted to do my part to try and bring hope and happiness through my art. The world needed a pick-me-up, and I wanted “YASSS” to be that. I hope that the lyrics encourage empowerment and confidence, and the uptempo beat will help people forget about their worries for a minute. Creatively, I wanted the video to be colorful, poppy, and most importantly, fun! I wanted people to hear it and feel inspired to get up and do that in-home work out, have that dance party in the mirror with themselves or their quarantine buddy, or just feel the positive vibes for a few minutes, to help make it through another day at home,” said Ashlee.
Preceding “YASSS” is Ashlee’s single “Hurt Me So Good,” which skyrocketed up the Billboard Dance charts to #8 within days and has more than 1 million streams on Spotify. Following “Hurt Me So Good,” Ashlee’s “Bad Mistake” was released as her #1 breakout song and held its own on the Billboard Dance charts for weeks.
