1) Tell us something about yourself that your fans may not know.
A: Something about myself my fans don't know, I am a serious homebody haha. I hate the club, no lie. I don't like to get into trouble either. I would rather just be vibing at the crib with some friends chilling, so that way, we stay outta the way, haha.
2) How has Orlando impacted your music style, if at all?
A: Orlando is super dope and a lot of people don't know that. It's really a melting pot out here. We have people living here from up north, the Caribbean, Europe, just everywhere. That being said, it really has allowed me to learn different cultures and different music cultures. I love the fact that people can see, in my art, the influence of the Carribean and Europe.
3) Who are some artists who have influenced your music style?
A: As far as artists that have influenced me, I have to give credit to the absolute goat, T-Pain. He's mainly the reason I started making music in 2006 at 12. I have to be honest, in my writing style, I always say Kevin Gates and a lot of people don't believe me. In all honesty, I learned how he writes and he paints pictures with his records, so I've taken a lot of that into consideration in my style. Lastly, I kind of want to credit an era and this may sound weird, but that whole 2006-2009 Fall Out Boy era was super beneficial to me. I believe you can hear it in "You Coming Back."
4) If you could only have a feature from 1 artist for the rest of your career, who would it be?
A: Man, I'm not gonna lie, it is super tough for me to only pick one. If I have to shoot for the biggest possible feature, I would have to go with T-Pain. I say that with all respect to some of the legends, but honestly, he's the reason I started making music. It would just be like a personal and, hopefully, a Billboard fulfillment, so I can pay him back haha.
5) How did you come up with the idea for your new single 'You Coming Back?'
A: The idea came to me when the producer, ItsKmoBruh, showed me the joint. I instantly thought of the throwback, "Yellowcard" by Ocean Avenue, and the feelings I had hearing that record during the summer. I was like yeah this is some Florida beach love story for the summer, and I feel like we have all been there. Also, I don't want to give it away, but there may or may not be a remix with another summer legend on it in the near future.
6) What was the studio process like for the track?
A: I always try to keep it simple and work solely off of my emotions at that moment. I just begin laying melody takes, saying things that make absolutely no sense, but it's a vibe haha. After that, I just piece together the story and cut the record. It always comes back to haunt me because I never write lyrics. I just lay stuff down then when I have to submit lyrics, I have to replay the record 100 times haha.
