We adore each passionate element within your sultry single "Pull Up (My Show)." What pushed you to create such a thorough and sensual song like this? Thank you! I wanted to put everything I could do musically on full blast. Singing, rapping, even a little bit of scatting. I’ve always wanted to step into my feminine essence and unapologetically be sensual while still being powerful and Pull Up allowed me to do just that. I think mainly it was a five minute song so I didn’t want people to get bored. I wanted them to hear something new every time.
Could you take us through the creative process for your single "Pull Up (My Show)"? Did you have any producers, musicians, or engineers help brings your vision to life?
People are often surprised when they find out that I get a lot of my beats from YouTube. I think YouTube gets a bad rep when it comes to beats, but if you search thoroughly, you’ll find some amazing producers who honestly should be working with the biggest artists out here. I got this beat from one of my favorites, Yondo. I also used his work when I made my debut EP Tour Eiffel in 2018. His beats are always such a vibe. It took me two days in total to write the song because I wanted to make sure that as dynamic as it is, it’s also cohesive as a track. I recorded the whole thing in about 2 hours and had it mixed about 7 times. I had a dope engineer that I go to school with named Jake do the main mix, but when I listened to his final mix I still felt like there was something missing. So I decided I was gonna finish up the mix myself. It was my first time doing something like that and it makes me very proud to listen back to. What was your songwriting process like for "Pull Up (My Show)" when writing your lyrics and bars? Is this a straightforward process for you?
I honestly don’t think that I have a process. I think my songwriting consists of beautiful chaos that turns into something magical. I always hear melodies first. I was inspired by Ari Lennox’s Chicago Boy and any Ari fan could hear that. I instantly knew I wanted the song to be confident and sexy. Did I think it was gonna get as risqué as it did when it got to the end? No, but that’s the beauty of the journey. Some of the most explicit lines came simply because I was trying to find a rhyme. For example in the third verse, I was rhyming words like “see that” with “relapse” and “recap.” As I kept going, I went to RhymeZone to look for a rhyme and the word that instantly jumped out at me was “kneecaps.” I asked myself if I was really going to go there…and I did. I feel like my wildest lyrics come when I’m simply looking for a word that rhymes.
Seeing as you're a Black Nöize artist who doesn't conform to any specific genre, how would you describe your sound to someone who's never listened?
I understand the gravity of comparing myself to this person, but my entire life because of my versatility people have told me that I remind them of Beyoncé. You know how Beyoncé can adapt her style so that it works on virtually any type of music whether it be Hip-Hop, R&B, Afrobeats or anything else? I would say that I do that in my own way. I can transform my style to fit an R&B record, a drill record, Afrobeats, French Pop, or anything else I’m feeling in that moment. Just know it’s always gonna be a vibe.
What do you want listeners to know about you and the music that you create?
I just want people to know that I love what I do. My music is an extension of my being and the expression of my soul. It’s authentically me and it’s the reason why I was put on this planet. When you listen to one of my songs, I want you to feel that. I don’t do it for acclaim or financial success (although I am welcoming that in my life), but I am wholeheartedly in love with music.
