Collaborating with, “Growing Up” is accompanied by an intimate video featuring Miki Ratsula setting the mood for what’s to come. Dana and Miki have a long history together. They quickly became friends after Spotify matched them through “Fans Also Like.” Their first endeavor was co-writing Zach Hood’s first original single “Flashbacks,” garnering over 50 million streams. Later in 2022, they once again joined forces working side-by-side on Miki’s sweet single “Sugarcane.” Now history seems to be repeating.

The song’s lyrics are both honest and uplifting, providing the perfect soundtrack for anyone looking to find solace in their journey.

We got Dana and Miki singing in a small room. It’s impossible not to feel the passion behind their words while watching them sing.

“‘Growing Up’ is about the unraveling of a longtime friendship and coming to terms with that. Like any breakup, I’m grieving the loss of a loved one. I think it is possible to care for someone but to also to understand that your values no longer align. In order to grow into your full potential, sometimes, it’s important to let go of certain habits and relationships, in order to cultivate the best version of yourself.” – Dana Williams
