Welcome to BUZZ, MAKO Girls! You've provided an exceptional listening experience with your sweet single, "AIN'T THINKIN BOUT YOU." What inspired your group to create this empowering song?


Our single "AINT THINKIN BOUT YOU" is a sassy yet fun song chanting about how we overcome challenges, Aint thinkin about people or things that are trying to stop us from succeeding. The song was super catchy with a chorus you have to sing along to, and it is filled with so much energy as soon as the song starts.


Did you all write lyrics for "AIN'T THINKIN BOUT YOU?" What was your group's songwriting process like when writing such an impactful song like this?


We pitched the idea for the song to a writing team to write a song, which they came up with. It was our style to the T, so we started recording immediately.


What was it like working with Kiki Ely when creating the "AIN'T THINKIN BOUT YOU" music video? What was that collaboration like?


This collaboration was amazing; it was the best one by far! It was a 2-week rehearsal for this video where we learned the different dance styles. Kiki Ely also helped get dancers for the video and had us working with one of the best stylists otheezystyledit. We could come on the set and just be the artist, which was the best feeling ever! Thank you, Kiki Ely and her whole team behind her, and there are definitely more videos like this coming soon.


On a deeper note, what was it like traveling back to your old high school for the "AIN'T THINKIN BOUT YOU" music video? How did it feel to be more successful than ever on your old stomping grounds?


This was a very special location to shoot at school because this was the high school we all graduated from. It wasn't only a walk down memory lane for us, but it was also a full-circle moment. We got to represent our school and allow some students to participate in an amazing production. And the principal was super excited and kind for letting us use our high school for the music video and being a part of it.


What do you hope listeners take away from "AIN'T THINKIN BOUT YOU"? What was your goal in terms of the listener's experience?


We wanted to leave our listeners feeling motivated and confident, knowing that there’s a light no one can dim in you. And that we are not thinking about the negativity because it doesn't benefit us on the way to the top!
