What initially inspired you to create such an empowering, relatable, and spiteful tune with "Godspeed (Marcothatsall)?"
HAVS: This song started as a freestyle. It was supposed to be a venting song. I recorded it at home using the beat that Marco sent me a couple of days before and sent it to him as a joke (kind of, half-serious). He liked it and suggested releasing it as his first song as a producer. We've been wanting to work on something together for a while so this seemed like a kismet opportunity. I think the realness in the song is what makes it so empowering. I wasn't worrying about what anyone would think, it was purely for me.
You mentioned that Producer Marcothatsall and yourself went 50/50 on the creation of "Godspeed (feat. Marcothatsall)." What was your collaboration like when making the track from the ground up?
HAVS: Marco made the beat in his time, and I put together the lyrics and melody/flow in my time. From there we've been working collaboratively on the artwork, release, and any other decisions or ideas. He sent over a few beats that he made with me in mind and Godspeed is the one that I felt the most aligned with.
Did Marcothatsall help you write the lyrics for "Godspeed (feat. Marcothatsall)," or was your songwriting process an internal experience?
HAVS: The process of writing the lyrics was very internal. Like I said it was initially just me venting to the mic. I pressed record and liked what I got from it. From there I finalized a few lines and turned it into what it is now.
How did Marcothatsall manage to formulate the production to offer such serenity and warmth within "Godspeed (feat. Marcothatsall)"? What sort of feeling and atmosphere did you want the production to provide?
Marco: I was listening to a lot of "partynextdoor" at the time that I made this. I wanted to implement some of the darker sounds with a heavy bass line. I made a few beats with HAVS in mind and this was the one that she ended up using.
What can we expect to see next from you?
HAVS: I have a couple of singles and videos lined up for 2021. I've also been collaboratively working on some healing songs to accompany meditations.
Marco: I'll be going public with my beat store (Marcothatsall.com) on November 27th with a ton of vibes including trap, afrobeat, etc.
