Hotly-tipped New Zealand pop act Robinson revealed her brand-new single ‘Karma’, out since the end of January via Ministry of Sound Recordings. The track is an empowering response to being mistreated in a relationship and the consequences that come with breaking someone’s heart.
Sony Music released these details in a statement.
‘Karma’ is Robinson’s first release of the year, following an array of successes for the pop newcomer. In 2018 her debut single ‘Nothing to Regret’ achieved 2 x PLATINUM certification in Australia and she received two nominations at the New Zealand Vodaphone Music Awards for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Single of the Year.
“It’s about opening up your heart to someone who ends up taking that for granted, then when you end things, they try and come back like nothing ever happened. I really wanted Karma to explore the pain of early heartbreak. I also wanted it to have real power to it – you can’t break someone’s heart and then act like you didn’t.”
Robinson also finished a successful UK and European tour supporting Hayley Kiyoko and her follow up single ‘Medicine’ became an instant hit, which has already garnered over 10 million streams to date. To top off 2018, Robinson joined Australian favourite Dean Lewis on his national headline tour – and in addition – the pop starlet performed her very own debut Australian headline shows at The Lansdowne Hotel in Sydney and at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club.
Robinson recently announced her debut performance at SXSW festival this year. She also was revealed as one of Vevo DSCVR’s One’s to Watch 2019 as well as one of Youtube’s Artists to Watch 2019. With over 90 million combined streams and counting, 2019 is certain to be a monumental year for Robinson.
