Toronto’s AJA cleans up “The Mess You Made” with bold new single

Bursting onto the scene in 2020, Toronto pop powerhouse AJA has quickly established herself as a force to watch this year. At just 17 years of age, she leads the pack of a new generation of young Canadian talent crafting punchy, empowering pop.  

AJA’s combination of heart on sleeve lyricism and standout vocals quickly won her press acclaim and over three million streams since her first two singles, “NERVE” and “Who’s Gonna Love You?”

In collaboration with eight-time GRAMMY Award-winning producer Scott Storch, AJA blends her infectious pop sensibility with sprinkles of R&B, on “The Mess You Made.” A bold follow-up to her breakout success, landing her on Youtube Music’s Artist on the Rise.

On the track, AJA shares,

“It was an incredible experience having worked with someone like Scott Storch. The message behind the single is that your emotional & life experiences can only help you become a stronger person. It’s never fun to clean up someone else’s emotional mess but it’s a process that can only make you stronger.”

There are times throughout our romantic encounters we may feel the urge to go running back to our partner thinking he/she or the circumstances of the relationship have changed, but that is not always the case.

A love we think should be simple is often everything but, and we begin to form ideals around our expectations, in order to save ourselves from disappointment.

Caught in-between another lover, AJA comes to see through the lies of her significant other, refusing to let them back in.

When we become caught in the middle of emotional turmoil, sometimes the only way to go is forward. We must never let ourselves veer off to the left where nothing is “right,” nor right where there is nothing “left.”

If only this love were forever and not for now.
