WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Hayla, international singer-songwriter and percussionist with lush vocals, is enjoying Billboard chart success with new single “I’m Free.” Hayla divulges that “I’m Free” was written after she discovered her boyfriend of 7 years in bed with another man. Born into a musical family, Hayla was raised by two lesbian moms and is the daughter of a gay hairstylist. Experiencing the wrath of prejudice during her youth, Hayla is all about love and compassion today. She believes that everyone should be free to express themselves honestly.
“I wrote ‘I’m Free’ because I surprisingly found my boyfriend of 7 years cheating on me with another man,” explains Hayla. “But guess what? I didn’t freak out at all. Everything was cool because a person needs to be true to himself first. I was just so amazed that I didn’t figure it out sooner! [Laughs] We were both set free to find our true selves.”
Hayla moves into the #23* spot this week on the Billboard Dance chart with “I’m Free.” The single is gaining at radio and is currently in rotation on BPM on SiriusXM, MusicChoice, FusionRadio.fm, PNN.fm and iheartradio.com.
“I feel so blessed to be supported by all these immensely talented remixers on ‘I’m Free’,” states Hayla. “The clubs have always been a home to me. I’m sending a big hug and smooch to each and every DJ and radio PD out there spinning ‘I’m Free!'”
