Classics on the radio: J. Maya’s "Achilles Heel"

February 22, 2021

Congratulations to Janani Krishnan-Jha '20 on the success of her first single, entitled "Achilles Heel," which generated over a million worldwide streams within a month of its release in January! She has just signed to Expand Music as their second artist after the hugely successful Conan Gray and is in discussions with the world’s biggest labels about a record deal. Long a fan of Greco-Roman mythology, Janani loved learning more about ancient Greek culture and its modern receptions when she took CLS-STDY 152: The Construction of Gender and Sexuality in Ancient Greece in Fall 2019. Listen to the song and spot references to Sisyphus, Echo, Icarus, and more! You can also read her annotated lyrics.
