While isolating during a pandemic isn’t the best way to work on new music, singer-songwriter Kiiara is making the best out of an unfortunate situation. Based out of Chicago, the 25-year-old musician is celebrating the release of her latest single, “I Still Do,” which tackles how inexplicable your feelings about love can be. Her previous releases include “Open My Mouth” and her Linkin Park collaboration, “Heavy.” Fans may stay in touch with her on Instagram and Twitter (@kiiara), Facebook (@kiiaraofficial) and on her website (

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?

A: Florida. I love going to Miami or Fort Lauderdale. I always feel so relaxed and refreshed there. I think it's the combination of the humidity, wind and ocean. I'd recommend just relaxing by the beach and eating sushi every day. Get a hotel with an ocean view where you can walk across the street and be at the beach within less than a minute.

Q: What was the first trip you took as a child?

A: Florida. I have family there, so we'd always go visit. It was something we'd do at least once a year. I remember going to Walt Disney World a lot. My favorite ride was the Pirates of the Caribbean one. We'd also go to the beach a few times a week.

Q: What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?


A: I've learned to just go with the flow and to never forget to bring headphones or you'll end up having to buy a pair at the airport every time. I have way too many pairs of headphones at this point. I'll just leave them at my friends' studios.

Q: Would you prefer to have a casual meal at a street cart or fine dining at a nice restaurant?

A: Any sushi restaurant and STK Steakhouse, because I try to eat as healthy as possible. I have low iron, so I have to make sure I eat red meat.
