"I'm excited for people to hear and kinda see a different side of me"
Meet rising pop star Tania, who's launching her sophomore music video, "By You," here at Popdust.
Describing the song's inspiration, Tania says, "I'm excited for people to hear and kinda see a different side of me that I never really show. It's a tough world out there when it comes to love and relationships. Women have needs too and I do fantasize about my own perfect world sometimes. 'By You' really brings that out and focuses on that person that holds you down, that person you can't live without."
Tania burst onto the scene with her debut track, "Break Up To Make Up," which amassed over 1 million views on YouTube and hit the 14th slot on Billboard's Dance chart.
Originally from Corona, California, Tania grew up singing karaoke, but she abandoned her musical aspirations to study law at the University of LaVerne. After a friend heard her sing and raved about her voice, she decided to chase her dream. One thing led to another, and she soon found herself in the studio with Rico Love, Poo Bear, and Eric Bellinger.
"By You" opens on a shimmering pop melody, flavored with R&B textures. Tania's velvety, seductive voice infuses the tune with infectious harmonies.

Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
About a year after being accused of selling furniture to ICE detention centers, e-commerce site Wayfair is in another controversy.
Wayfair, the e-commerce website beloved by millennials on a budget who don't want their apartments to look just like IKEA showrooms, is no stranger to controversy.
Last summer, employees of the company organized a protest after allegations surfaced that Wayfair had sold $200,000 worth of furniture to border detention facilities. Now, Wayfair is being suspected of trafficking missing children in their furniture.
