Unhinged serves as an anthem that celebrates the fear and courage it takes to make a major life change.
With music and lyrics by Cenza, music, production, and mixing by Jay-Elle, and additional mixing and mastering by JD Moon, “Unhinged” marks Jay-Elle and Cenza’s third collaboration and features a richly complex alt-pop mix and crisp vocals.
“I wrote this song when I realized I needed a change. I needed to cut a cord and enter a new chapter in my life,” says Cenza. “Breaking free of something that is stunting your growth is terrifying and can throw us completely off-balance, but it’s ultimately the best thing you can do for yourself. Feeling like you don’t know what’s next should be something that is celebrated and embraced, because that when the good stuff starts to happen. That’s what this song is. And just wait for the music video,” continued Cenza.
Cenza released her first two singles, City Lights and Thriving in 2020, and has since been featured in numerous magazines including Aesthetic Magazine, Mixx Magazine, Music Crowns, Skope Magazine, Switch Bitch Magazine, and more. The singles were praised as “an example of her creative genius, artistic musicality, and ability to inspire.”
Cenza is currently working on her debut album with a music video for “Unhinged” in pre-production slated for an April release.
