Welcome to BuzzMusic, Betta. We truly appreciate your single, "Stalker." What inspired you to write this? There was a time when my Facebook feed and also Instagram were full of memes about a series called "You", which is on Netflix. I got curious, and I watched it. It was really crazy, and I felt like writing a song about it because I wanted to experiment with something new. I never usually sing stuff like that. I have always been singing love songs or sad songs (like my first single, Loneliness) but singing about stalking, obsession, and killing, was a real challenge that I made to myself, and I am glad that I did it. I found it very creative. What does "Stalker" mean to you? What's the message you'd like people to take away from it? For as a person, maybe not much, but the song is a new milestone that I achieved in my music career. This is the first song where I experimented with other genres and other topics, and now I simply can't imagine myself singing love songs again. I never actually released my old songs because I felt like something was missing, something catchy that Stalker definitely has. The message that I want to transmit with the lyrics is to be careful, especially when you're young. be careful with your feelings; what can be love can turn out to be an obsession, and that's bad. The message that I want to transmit with my experience, though, is that you should never hesitate or be scared to try something new because it can be the best decision you can ever make. Tell us a bit about your journey. What would you tell someone who's just starting to create music? I just started as well, and the only advice that I can give is to don't be afraid. Don't be afraid of judgment, and don't be afraid of trying something outside of your comfort zone. Music is art, and art is a way to express our feelings. We are not always feeling the same way, so why should our music always be the same? What's your favorite lyrics line in "Stalker," and why? "I'm a lady, but I hunt my prey" I love this line because the main character of the series is a man, and I wanted personification in the song. I also wanted to break the stereotypes. Usually, it is the man that goes hunting and the man that goes to the woman, but I am a woman, and I am empowered. The lyrics made me feel that way as well. What's next for you, Betta?
Next for me is to continue writing songs as much as possible. Exploring my potential. In fact, I tried to sing rock, pop, afrobeat, and even reggae. If you stay tuned, you might find out my musical potential because I am not planning to stick to one genre. I wanna sing all types of songs.
