INSPIRED by the sounds of Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, pop dance singer Keeda said her latest single had been a long time coming.

"It's like a big secret I've held on to for so long, so I'm so excited to get it out there and share it with everyone," she said yesterday."I wrote a year-and-half ago, it was meant to be my third single release but it wasn't really ready and now that I've put so much into it, it's great to finally be able to tell everyone."

Recently moving to Rockhampton this year to be with X-Factor's Zach Russell, also where they both first met, the Sydney-born actress, singer and dancer is offering up her single Loca, released Thursday.

Describing Loca as a pop dance tune with a European feel, Keeda said it's somewhat different to her previous tracks.

"My previous songs have been very commercial sounding, but I wanted this one to be a little different and being that I've got a European background so I wanted to incorporate a bit of myself in to it," she said.

"So think that's my point of difference."

Also balancing her acting and dancing career with her music, Keeda said she'd enjoying her time in Rockhampton and also teaches dance classes at Michael Robertson Studio of Dance and Musical Theatre.

"I really do love it, I'm in Sydney at the moment and I miss being up there," she said.

"I'd never lived out of home or travelled so it's been a great experience and I think it's given more inspiration for my writing as well."

As an independent artist, Keeda said Loca was something she'd poured her heart into in every aspect of both the songs and video.

"I'm a very visual person so if I sit down with the producer and they've made a beat, I'll envisage the film clip for it and write the lyrics from that," she said.

Keeda said although the entertainment industry can be tough, it was important to stay positive and continue following her dream.

"I have a really strong support base and when people are actually buying my music, it just makes me want to keep going."

LATEST TASTE

Loca is available on iTunes for download now.

The video will be out on July 14
