Poppy Ajudha Asserts Her Boundaries On Jungle-Produced "No!"

Poppy Ajudha Asserts Her Boundaries On Jungle-Produced "No!"

August 10, 2022

Arriving as the first release since her striking debut album Power In Us, Poppy Ajudha returns with "No!" and it's brimming with empowering messages.

Here she taps into her outspoken songwriting style to reassert her boundaries over her mind and body with a punk-pop production from Jungle. A crunchy guitar solo erupts halfway through as we settle into the intensity of Poppy's vocals, expressing her unwillingness to hold back on being her true and authentic self—a powerful reminder that Poppy Ajudha is a true force to be reckoned with.

She comments: "In a world where anyone can reach you at any time, and say whatever they want through a computer screen, 'No!' Is a rebellion against, the criticism and internet trolling, a social commentary on a world of chaotic political narratives, dishonest public figures and the ongoing flow of conflicting public opinions.

"The track is about owning who you are, being unapologetically yourself, and saying NO! to other people's expectations of you. I wrote 'No!' with Jungle on our first time meeting, our energies just clicked and we created the perfect rebellious and urgent record that speaks to how I feel in this moment."

Hit play on the Dylan Hayes-directed visuals to see chaos erupt.
