Jinan Laetitia reckons with others’ expectations on new single ‘Mannequin’

The Indonesian pop artist's third single this year

Indonesian pop artist Jinan Laetitia has returned with her new single ‘Mannequin’.

The 19-year-old wrote the single, released today (October 22) on all major streaming platforms via Warner Music Indonesia, at a time when she was in a confusing place and feeling the burden of others’ expectations – which often differed from her sense of her own identity.

“’Cause I’m your mannequin / Pretty porcelain / Cut me off, dress me up / ‘Til I’m pretty,” she croons on the chorus. The pink-hued music video finds the artist in a fantastical space in the heavens, surrounded by mannequins and porcelain figures. Watch it below:


Co-produced by Jinan Laetitia and osvaldorio, ‘Mannequin’ is her third release this year following the tracks ‘Forgive’ and ‘Picture’, which also tackle self-exploration and also received lavish visual treatments.

Jinan Laetitia made her debut in 2020 with the three-track EP called ‘POV: The Prelude’. She soon released three more singles in the same year – ‘Jaket Merah’, ‘Tug Of War’ and ‘WHENEVER’.
