Hello MALI AMA, and welcome to BuzzMusic. We adore the limitless passion and lust you've delivered within your recent single, "Oh My." Where did you find the inspiration to create this warm-hearted track?
Thank you! To be honest, I don’t recall the inspiration at that time of crafting now this masterpiece, ‘Oh My’. I do remember it was late 2019 when I heard the sample and was like, oh yeah, I gotta write to this! I was harmonizing at first, then it built to the idea hmm let’s share your experience(s) of meeting a guy you like & hoping he doesn’t hurt you or fck it up!
During your creative process for "Oh My," what inspired the sweet and cinematic string section within the sonics? What did this element add to the existing sonics?
Funny thing, I had taken LSD and played the song to get into the vibe before I headed to the studio to lay vocals and I just heard strings. I found what I was looking for, chopped it up real quick, added the strings then headed to the studio. I felt it took ‘Oh My’ to another level. The strings gave the song such a cinematic vibe.
Are you familiar with writing lyricism straight from the heart, or do you often face challenges with vulnerability and channeling your emotional thoughts?
If I’m not feeling the song it’s definitely a struggle to tap in and express myself lyrically. Once I find a good loop and I come up with a title it's a little challenge but really fun (I love a challenge) to think about all the things that happened to you and put it into a song where people can relate or understand me better. I also find, at times, to be very vulnerable in front of the mic a challenge, it’s weird, but I’m working on it. Definitely gotten better with it though!
Can’t tell but it’s true.
Seeing as you've released four singles in total, do your releases share similar themes, lyrically and sonically? Or would you say that each of your released songs brings something different to the table?
I have an EP under my old artist name, so technically 8 if we’re counting. However, I do believe the two ‘SAY’ and ‘Oh My’ share a theme. They are the prelude to my upcoming EP. These two songs tell a piece of the story. The story of me being in a “situationship” that turned toxic. ‘ Say’ is like the backstory or summary of what I’m about to really tell you. ‘ Oh, My ‘ is the beginning, how it started. The other songs on the EP will give you the rest of the storyline. As for ‘ Look at me Now’ it is a personal song of how I feel about myself on my growth as a person and artist. All of my songs are def a vibe. I feel I’ve found my signature sound. Each song just gets better!
What's next for you?
Working, praying, and hoping for a tour, sync placements, and a nice big budget to give you all an epic Album!
