Welcome to BuzzMusic P Bailey! Cheers to your latest release, "More Than Just Friends," which explores the complex emotions of transitioning from friendship to something deeper. Can you share any personal experiences or inspirations that influenced the narrative of this song?

Lol...Being friend-zoned more than a few times made me pen this tune I have been carrying for a few yrs. Something you go through as an adolescent and, confronting your feelings then finding out the person who you have this tension for has the same tensions but hiding their feelings. It was time to finish this joint and get it out there.

Your vocals in "More Than Just Friends" echo beautifully across the industrial vibe of the beat. Can you discuss your approach to this unique vocal arrangement and how it enhances the song's narrative?

Thank you so much! I usually just let the song dictate how I will sing it. As I start with the chorus and build everything around it, the arrangements start coming to me as I hear it. As the song develops, so do the vocal arrangements. The rhythm is talking to me, telling me what she needs to help bring the song to life.

The beat in "More Than Just Friends" has a distinct heavy rhythm. What led you to choose this specific sound for the song, and how do you feel it complements the lyrics?

For this song, I was going for something heavy electronic dance meets Hip Hop subgenres Jazzy Hip Hop, Breakbeat. I wanted a funky bass line to compliment the vibe; I was going for a summer club banger that would make a statement and help drive the lyrics home.

"More Than Just Friends" delves into the theme of romantic desire. How do you hope listeners will connect with this theme, and what do you want them to take away from the song?

I hope the listeners, especially those who have been friend zoned, understand those feelings and can connect with them. Request it from their DJs at parties/clubs. Put it on their playlist,

share it with friends, and make it viral. The summer vibe begins now, so let this be the summer theme song!

With your extensive musical journey and the recent release of "More Than Just Friends," what are your aspirations for the future, both in musical style and your career?

That's a big question. Continue to release music 3 to 4 times a year with my new Ingrooves deal. Get on major playlists, sync licensing placements, grants, and more conferences

multiple income streams are the game's name, and some good collaborations.
