Earlier this month, Colbie Callait released a video that made us do a double take. The song is called “Try” and it shows a cast of beautiful women, Colbie included, going from full makeup and fake lashes to their fresh-faced, natural selves.
Inspiring, to say the least, “Try,” is Colbie’s statement on how women shouldn’t have to “try so hard.” It was actually born out of her own frustration when her label told her that her music needed to change. After being pressured to be more like the pop stars that have set the standard – you know what we’re talking about – Colbie decided to scrap her new album and write a completely new one. The result was Gypsy Heart Side A, an EP with a lot of honesty, strength and so much inspiration.
