Your journey and resilience are a significant part of your music. How does "Purr" reflect your personal and musical evolution?
Purr reflects my personal and musical evolving because the influence of the industry is heavily flooded with sexually derogatory music from both sides, and I want to set the tone that you can be classy and sexy and passive-aggressive about what you are working with so don’t come over here trying to play me like it’s less than.

I think another female artist would complement it well because we only know what it takes to be a women in this time with men thinking we should bring something to the table other than ourselves. These days, women are asked if it is too much to hold up when we are the glue to a lot of things and egos that walk amongst us.
