And with the song’s heartbreaking lyrics that reach the deepest, darkest corner of the soul, the universal language of raw emotions, pain, and anguish, it touches even the coldest heart.
Available on Lying Boy Entertainment, the new single really shows the artistic potential of this incredibly versatile artist. Bella is a chameleon who can change shape and form so easily and yet always stays true to herself.

Directed by Vicente Cordero and produced by David Gnozzi, the song and visual is a production of the highest level that pours out pure emotion.
