Gia Woods' latest single, "HUNGRY," marks a new chapter for the rising pop star and emerging voice in the LGBTQ community. Unlike anything she has released before, the song — a fierce mash-up of hard-rocking guitar pop and confident lyrics — is all about taking control of her destiny.

Directed by Daddy, the music video follows Woods as she embodies various characters, from bedazzled dancer to homicidal cheerleader. The song is similarly liberating, as Woods addresses doing her own thing without apology. "HUNGRY" also possesses the perfect clapback to unsolicited opinions: "I'm not hungry, bitch/ Leave me alone."
