Thank you for having me! Glow was created during the beginning of Covid. It was tough with all the things going on in the world and I felt I needed to be relatable but also spread some of my light.
Speaking of honesty, was it easy for you to be so open and real when writing your bars for "Glow (feat. Juicee Monroe)"? What was your songwriting process like?
Yes, it was easy, to be honest on Glow with my bars because I always write about my life and wanna give relatable substance we’re humans I wanna be able to connect. The process for Glow started with me making the beat. I started writing my verses first. Then my chorus came as I was humming to myself while playing with my verses and Glow started to form itself; it just was missing one thing, Juciee.

What I want listeners to take away from Glow is that it’s about finding your light in the darkness and spreading your light to others as you continue to be bright. I hope to leave listeners with a song to play anytime their light feels dim so they can recharge it and keep going and also share it with others who have a bright light and relate.
