Mia Rodriguez Daydreams About Mending Her Broken Heart in 'Superglue'
The 19-year-old pop artist puts her unique charms on full display on the track, with a warm and breezy pop sound and delicate vocals that make it the musical equivalent of a daydream. Packed with fairytale allusions, it's a song about trying to fix a broken heart, and wishing it was as easy as gluing it back together—and the Studio Ghibli-esque music video will have you enchanted from start to finish.
The Story Behind 'Superglue'
Mia Rodriguez: It's a very "escapist" song about being hurt. I've always been a very sensitive person; people have always made me feel different for being so. I was bullied most of my life and I still carry some of the trust issues and heartbreaks. "Superglue" is a representation of my dream to escape the reality of emotional pain and confusion.
What 'Superglue' Means
MR: This song feels really significant to how I've felt most of my life. I hope my listeners feel like they're not dealing with this alone.
Mia's Favorite Lyric
"Wish I could dive in that ocean blue, and fix my heart with some super glue." I've always felt so peaceful deep underwater. "Dive in that ocean blue" is a metaphor for escaping and isolating myself into a peaceful place and healing myself. However, I "wish," because other life obstacles stop myself from healing. I can't stay underwater (in comfort) forever.
