Diamante reveals Thelma And Louise inspired video for 'Had Enough'
Made in support of the #MeToo movement with an all female team, it pays tribute to the classic female friendship road trip film
"I think especially in today’s social climate, it’s both important and powerful to be able to tell the world ‘I’ve had enough, I’m pissed off, and it’s time for change." - Diamante
'Had Enough' follows Diamante’s 'Coming In Hot' official video which has now been streamed more than 1 million times
“Diamante has been making a big noise. With a series of feisty, well-received singles...the anthemic 'Had Enough' [is] a perfectly timed cover of a song originally released by English alt-rockers Lower Than Atlantis in 2016." - Team Rock (She Rocks Campaign, 2018)
As her sultry and show-stopping video for 'Coming In Hot' crosses 1 Million YouTube streams, 21-year-old Diamante shows she’s more than meets the eye in the brand new video for her female empowerment video anthem 'Had Enough'.
Shot on location in Palm Springs CA, Diamante enlisted an all-female team to create the ultimate gal-pal road trip video, which pays homage to the classic pissed-off-chick-flick Thelma and Louise. Taking the desert by storm alongside actress Mackenna Johnson, the video features a behind-the scenes cast including Director/Producer Sofia Lane, production crew Rose Lu and Alyssa Mordal, and camera work by Tania Espinosa Cueva. Each woman is up-and-coming in her respective field.
“It’s critical to see more women at the top of fields traditionally dominated by men,”explains Diamante on her decision to hire women for this shoot. “But in order to do that, we need to give women a chance to get their foot in the door. It was very important to me to create opportunities for other women in the making of this video”
Originally recorded by Lower Than Atlantis, Diamante decided to put her stamp on the song because the strong lyrical content struck a chord. “Something about its unapologetic honesty really captivated me. I think that level of honesty and bluntness of being able to tell the world: 'Hey! I'm pissed off!' is very powerful and something that music has been craving, especially in today's climate”
'Had Enough' is the fourth track released from her forthcoming debut record due out later this year on Better Noise Records, following 'Haunted', 'Sleepwalking' and the breakout track 'Coming In Hot'. Produced by Howard Benson [Chris Cornell, Kelly Clarkson, My Chemical Romance, Halestorm], the upcoming collection brings to light a signature sound the artist has been developing meticulously since age 13. With her edgy style, sultry vocals, pop sensibility, and unabashed swagger, the Mexican-Italian-American solo artist draws from myriad influences and calls to mind legends from a spectrum of rock icons including Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Debbie Harry, Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, and Bowie.
