Burgeoning viral modern pop star Havanna Winter has released her latest single “Death Wish” which was produced by David Arkwright (Bella Poarch, NCT DREAM, Illenium) and written by Maya K, Havanna Winter, Anette Winter, and David Arkwright.
Havanna says, “Deathwish is about love and how romance is unpredictable and a bit of a double-edged sword if you will. Sometimes it’s a blessing and other times a lesson, but you never know in advance, and you have no choice but to gamble, even with your heart at stake, because if you don’t, you might miss out on the most incredible part of life and something true, real, and meaningful.
The inspiration behind it came from one of my favorite movies: Baz Luhrmann’s 'Romeo and Juliet.' I am so obsessed with the theme of the movie, with a mix of Shakespearean and the Roman Catholic, modern-fashion-pop-culture, being the most beautiful, yet most tragic love story of all time.”
