Shayla Souliere Shares The Inspiration Behind Her Song “Screw U”

Meet up and coming pop singer, Shayla Souliere, who is from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Back in 2012, she was accepted into a singing contest called “Edmonton Undiscovered,” It was there where Souliere found her true passion in life, music. In late 2013, she came into contact with Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter Alex Cantrall (he has produced/wrote for Beyonce, P!NK, Jojo and more). He took Souliere on as an artist and has been mentoring her ever since!


Flash forward to July 2015 when Souliere teamed up with director, Nayip Ramos, to shoot her music video for her latest single, “Screw U.” With the release of “Screw U” on her YouTube channel in December 2015, the song has gained some notable attention. “Screw U” landed Souliere radio play and interviews with some major radio stations including her hometown radio station, Z99 Regina. The song has also gained some exposure on the popular app, Musical.ly. There, many fans and even some major artists have created musical.ly’s to the song. “Screw U” is an energetic, catchy song that gives a big screw U to past relationships.

Screw U / Yeah you wanted me too / But you had your chance and you screwed it up / Screw U / Middle finger to you / Look around, everybody knows ya suck

Souliere talks about where the inspiration for the song came from:

“For my single “Screw U” I collaborated with my songwriting/production team Alex Cantrall, Jeff Hoeppner, and Rhett Fisher. We recorded this at ES Audio Recording Studio in Burbank, CA. We all sat in the studio and I mentioned to the guys that I had some friends going through issues with their boyfriends and that everyone goes through times in their life where they aren’t getting along with someone or someone’s really annoyed them. That was when we thought up the idea of “Screw U.”

“Screw U” is definitely a song that you do not want to be on the wrong end of. Keep an eye out for future releases from Souliere and for future covers that will be posted to her YouTube channel.
