Welcome to BuzzMusic, Mainza, and congratulations on the release of your latest single, "Pills N Candy." Touching on vices and the sweeter things in life, what moment or story brought this concept to life?

It sparked from a small conversation my brother and I had one night. He built the melody through piano cords, I came up with the hook right there, and "Pills N Candy" was born that night.

Does your sound tend to take this thoughtful approach? What played into the deciding factor when choosing the direction for "Pills N Candy?"

I am a lyricist, but I hardly ever think about what I'm writing until after it's done, and I'm like, "Oh shoot, that makes sense," or "that sounds cool" lol. That's how it was with Pills N Candy. It wasn't until after the song was done that I saw the many messages people could take from it. With music, I'm just chasing a feeling, it could be happy, sad, etc., but I won't hold back when expressing that feeling.

At only 19, you speak on some mature subjects. Have you always been received as mature for your age when growing up? Do you find this helps your songwriting?

Yeah, I like to be very conscious and aware of the world around me and the many realities people face. That's definitely been my biggest aid when creating music.

What does "Pills N Candy" mean to you in your own words?

"Pills N Candy" to me, means and represents all the not-so-great things that one could find satisfaction doing. Things that could potentially drive a wedge between people in relationships, any kind of relationship. It doesn't just have to be drugs, as one would assume based on the word choice. It really can be anything.

What's next for you?

I am currently working on my debut project, one that I'm really having fun creating and playing with different sounds, tapping into different genres. I can't wait for the world to hear it!
