It’s always a pleasure chatting with you, McKayla Prew! Congratulations on the release of “Mine.” Delving into such a vulnerable subject, how does it feel to have this story off your chest and in the ears of the public?

Hi BuzzMusic! I am so excited to be interviewed by you again to talk about the release of my new single 'Mine.' 'Mine' was a very personal song to me that allowed me to put into words all the emotions I was feeling during that time. Personally, I am so excited to share 'Mine' with the public. I wrote it so that others who have gone through or who are going through similar experiences can have it by their side to surpass the temporary hardships of a breakup.

How would you say that your headspace has changed from the time of creating, to the time of release?

I wrote 'Mine' almost five years ago, therefore, the situation does not impact me as much as it did at the time of me writing it. Even though it was so long ago, looking at my lyrics I can still feel the confusion and the betrayal that I felt during that time.

In terms of themes and messages, what are you hoping that your audience can take away from a song like this?

In the second verse and the bridge, I transition the meaning of the song from going back and forth in a toxic situation to finally discovering your self-worth. I hope that listeners take away from 'Mine' the message that the actions of others do not define you or who you are. You are so much stronger than you think and the only love that you will ever need is self-love.

Compared to your previously released single ‘FAKE FRIENDS,’ how would you compare these two tracks to one another? What does “Mine,” say about you that ‘FAKE FRIENDS,’ didn’t?

'Fake Friends' and 'Mine' do have similar meanings as they are both written about people who you trusted and held dear to your heart going behind your back despite all you have done for them. Mine is different as it is written about a relationship with a significant other versus a relationship with friends.

What's next for you?

I have a whole album coming out in the upcoming future. Right now I am releasing singles off the album to get my name out there and build a fanbase before its release.
