With over 700,000+ streams across Spotify and YouTube, award-winning Canadian pop artist Christee Palace steps into “Danger” with her newest single — available now.
“‘Danger,’ for me, is a song about conscious self-defiance,” the Windsor-born, Toronto-based singer/songwriter says, offering context surrounding the track. “It’s about understanding full well what you are doing, and knowing it has the potential to have serious emotional consequences.
“In this specific situation, I knew what the end result was going to be, but I felt like I was persuaded into staying in that position.”
The video — sitting at 40,000+ views and rising — is a stunningly intimate cinematic peek into Palace’s mindset. “I think the video really takes you on an emotional journey,” she says. “It gets the audience into my headspace and takes you through each phase of emotions I went through.
“Since we live together, we were able to pull this off,” Palace adds of the video’s technical accomplishment. Directed and shot by her photographer/videographer boyfriend Jaden D., the pair created the song’s visuals during some of the earlier isolation days. “I knew my initial plans for the video would have to be altered given the restrictions in place, but we made the most of it and it turned out better than I could have imagined.”
Christee Palace’s debut EP Alive Today — and follow-up singles “Out of Time” and “Light It Up” — kicked off her career, climbing the charts within their first few weeks at radio. From there, sophomore EP Harden My Heart and singles “Harden My Heart” and “Love Me In the Dark” amplified the call, adding to the more than 400,000+ streams (and upwards of 34,000+ monthly listeners) across Spotify, and well over 300,000+ views on YouTube; single “Wrong to Say Goodbye” was featured on influential playlists New Music Friday, New Music Now, and It’s a Bop.
She’s been featured on GlobalTV’s morning show, and opened for the likes of Sean Kingston and Walk Off The Earth. Additionally, she opened for — and received a — 2019 Indie Award(s) after taking top prize in the Jim Beam National Talent Search.
“Danger” is available now.
