Welcome to BuzzMusic, Lucid Kidd. Your new single, "Smooth Sailing," is truly a vibe and a half. What inspired you to create this passionate and hard-hitting track?
Hello, thank you for having me. The last 3 singles released were really just telling a story about personal growth. The first song showed the emotions of being lost and lonely, the second showed realization, third included the love concept. As a 4th single smooth sailing is a song about acceptance of life not being always fair; therefore, when excepting the factor, the wavy and stormy 7 seas become smooth.
What was your favorite part about creating "Smooth Sailing?" Were there any specific moments or experiences that stood out to you?
I just loved the vibe in the room when that song was a work in progress. It was truly some pure good energy going with the flow, which can be clearly seen in the song because the vibe/mood in the room reflects the song's energy. Also, I loved shooting the video because it was throwing many creative and random ideas into one video, making it pretty original.

When you go with the flow, you accept the fact that not everything always will go your way, which will make even the stormiest seas smoother.
