Samsaya is a Norwegian singer set to make her mark on pop music. With a heart painted over her left eye, which she calls “a reminder that everything I meet and see, I will look upon with my heart and see it with an open mind,” Samsaya delivers pop music with smart lyricism and touches of funk and soul.
