Pop singer-songwriter Aiela Angela’s new song “Dance With the Devil” illustrates her forte for making true pop music. Being a rising artist in a crowded pop scene, Aiela Angela’s influences come from very distinct modern pop icons like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, and Rihanna. 

Angela has released “Dance with the Devil Versions,” which includes four tracks. The song is a dreamy club song recounting a villain origin story – the ideas of infidelity are coming from the perspective of someone cheating on their lover with another person. 

The original version of “Dance with the Devil” is filled with the melodic synth sounds and heartbreaking lyrics. The song is reminiscent of American club music, while having clear influences from pop icons.  “Dance with the Devil – Piano Version” is the first song on “Dance with the Devil Versions,” and it provides the listeners with an amazing sense of a slow, soft ballad. 

“Dance with the Devil – Acoustic” is a bit more jumpy and an exciting, stripped back version of the original song; the repeating snaps and guitar strumming give the beat a little more life. “Dance with the Devil – Songwriting Recording” is the club tune, centered on the melody, rather than the lyrics. 

Fans of Sia, Halsey, Dua Lipa, Katy Perry, and other emotion-evoking pop writers should listen to Aiela Angela.  Angela’s music has been featured on DWJE Radyo Pangasinan, EJazz Radio, and more.
