Artist, entertainer and songwriter Anaya LoveNote has something to say and she’s not holding back or biting her tongue for anyone or anything. Breaking out with her anthem for females titled, “Preference.” this Texas-bred and California-residing entertainer is winning over the hearts of the industry with her candid takes on life, love, and relationships.
Taking back the labels that men impose on women like “hoe” or “gold digger,” Anaya LoveNote wants to level the playing field of dating with her new video, so that men understand that it’s just her “Preference” to date the kind of men that just so happen to have a big bag and the means to take care of a family.
“If men can be out here focused on their bag, then why can’t we as women do that? I’m not trying to get married, I want to focus on my bag, I want to focus on me. I want to fix me, but at the same time I don’t want to be just boring – I want to enjoy my life – I want to be able to do that. It’s not fair that men take that and flip it. It’s like what makes me a hoe and you a player?” Anaya LoveNote asked.
Having been in a relationship with an A-list celebrity, Anaya LoveNove lost herself to the thralls of a relationship that was one-sided, and although she was happy for a time, ultimately she lost herself and her focus to be a singer and entertainer like she had always dreamed about.
“Preference is a song inspired by how I was dating a really really huge celebrity and at one point I lost myself in that person. I was very distracted. I wasn’t going to the studio, and working on me and he ended up breaking me to the point where I lost myself.” Anaya LoveNote said.
Flipping the tables on the double-standards of modern day dating where women are negatively labeled and men are propped up for the various relationships they flaunt, Anaya Love Note wants her “Preferences” and standards known out the gate.
But the road to finding success where she is touring weekly and recording with the best of the best wasn’t easy for Anaya LoveNote who grew up in foster care. Upon arrival to foster care when she was seven, Anaya took to singing and dancing, practicing and singing to Monica and Whitney Houston.
“When I got into foster care at the age of 7, I didn’t know I could sing or dance. I would listen to Monica and Whitney Houston and I would sing to them. Then one day this foster care person told me I had a gift and from there I loved the sound of my voice. I fell in love with music and I wanted to know how far I could go.”
Encouraged by the foster care staff, Anaya has continued to pursue her dreams of being an artist and entertainer since then and has ultimately written for the likes of Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang, Too Short and more.
