Having become a household name in her homeland Sweden and adopted home Kosovo through collabs with rapper French Montana and a spot on The X Factor Albania, Dafina is just getting started in the USA — and she wants to come in swinging. The siren recently put out her new single, “Told Ya,” a chilled out yet hard-hitting ode full of self-confidence and impressive bravado for a new artist. And today, the music video is premiering exclusively on V.

True to her stateside aspirations, the R.Steel-directed video shows Dafina and her crew prowling around the heart of New York as she claims her space in the city and lets us know that she’s aiming straight for the top. It’s hard not to get sucked into the hypnotic hooks and fizzing synths. “Believe in yourself and never doubt your craft," she said to V about the clip's message. "People can feel your energy!" Judging from the video, that's very accurate. Watch below.
