How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
I usually come up with a concept before going into the studio so I have a clear idea about what I want to make. After I get a concept and a solid track the lyrics just seem to flow.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?
I feel the most important thing in songwriting is the song’s story followed by the structure of lyrics and melody!
Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?
I haven’t felt scared because music is where I express myself and it makes me feel safe!
What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?
To be completely honest my favourite lyric is to a song that isn’t out yet but it’s coming! I’ll give you a hint… it’s about love.
What inspired the song “SIKE,” your latest single?
‘SIKE‘ is a confidence anthem. I was inspired to write ‘SIKE‘ to show that it’s okay for you to cry and feel emotions. but at the end of the day… just know that you’re amazing and some people only want to bring you down because they want to be like you.
And “Kiss Me Slow”?
‘Kiss Me Slow‘ was completely inspired by my Boyfriend Carlos, I actually freestyled 80% of the song with my eyes closed just thinking of him!
Do you remember the day you wrote “Take Your Man”?
Yes, it was such a fun day! I just received my pink mask from Amazon and I was sitting in my room. I looked into my mirror and started feeling’ kinda cute. My boyfriend Carlos walked by and I said to myself (while looking in the mirror) I can take your man if I want to but lucky for you I don’t want to…the song was born!
Will you release an album/EP very soon?
Hopefully! I’m working on a lot of songs right now!
What is the best suggestion your producer gave you?
My brother 8ky taught me how important ad-libs are to a song!
What are your plans for 2020?
I plan to write and release more music so I can tour and DJ all around the world.
