About the track, Rao said, "I wrote 'You Say I' about the experience of letting someone go who brought out my insecurities and self-doubt, and feeling so much happier and more confident after having done so. I believe we should strive to surround ourselves with people and ideas that lift us up, and it’s important to me to put that message out into the world. Sometimes we are passive with our relationships and with the media that we take in. Once I realized I could choose who and what I surrounded myself with and how important it all is in my life, I gained a better sense of self and direction."
A bunch of other artists make cameos in the "You Say I" video, including Keaton Simons, Melissa Polinar, Connie Lim and Kasi Jones, as well as Ruthie Alcaide (Real World Hawaii), Max Lugavere (host of Current TV) and Dia Frampton (The Voice).
How much do you love Sonia Rao?
