Why Daya's 'Hide Away' is a Star-Making Single

FUSE TV - Why Daya's 'Hide Away' is a Star-Making Single

When Daya released the single "Hide Away" six months ago, she was still an ordinary Pittsburgh high schooler -- she had to balance her musical aspirations with homework and prom preparation. The day that "Hide Away" came out last April, her teachers played it in their classes and some of her friends would be blasting it on their phones in the hallways, and Daya figured that would be the extent of its popularity.

"I didn't know if it would ever be on the radio, if people across the country would ever hear it," Daya tells Fuse. "I just thought it was some little thing."
