“Play It Back” is a song about how powerful ‘time’ is. You can gain anything in the world but time. Time heals all and everything takes time. I always say “take me back” when I think of good memories and I wanted the listeners to feel that same feeling when listening to the song so I called it “Play it back ” she explains.

Tell us about the genesis of your project. How did you get to where you are now?
I got to where I am now by being myself, I feel like when I first started making music I was so focused on what other people were doing and how they got to where they were — trying to follow their footsteps thinking that it would lead me into the same kind of success. But that’s not always the case, being yourself, knowing yourself, and believing in yourself has always been my way in doors to success.
What is the favorite song you wrote and why?
It isn’t released yet but it’s called VENTING – it was more of a freestyle of what I was going through. I messed up a good relationship with someone that is happy with someone else and as a woman, I feel like it’s hard to admit that you were the one that fucked up.
Who are your all time musical icons?
I would have to say my all time musical icon is Kurt Cobain.
What are some things to do to keep your inspiration alive?
Meditate and play video games. Sometimes I have to take a break from making music and my feelings.
Who are you binge listening to these days?
Good question… I’ve been listening to a lot of Ashanti and Mya lately.
Favorite movie or TV show?
My favourite movie is Bring It On, I know that movie like that back of my hand — line by line.

Sunny and exciting! I’m working on a joint project with a dope Canadian artist that I can’t wait to release.
Who inspires your style and aesthetics?
I never really thought about that because I feel like I take inspiration from different places and faces and make it my own. My aesthetic is pulled a lot from the 2000’s era.
What is the achievement or moment in your career you are the most proud of and why?
I made a song called ‘Heartbreak’ with my producer Kyleyoumadethat and I remember at the beginning of the session I told him that I wanted to create a ‘timbaland’ vibe. Few weeks after the music video came out, Timbaland liked the song – it was a full circle moment for me. The power of manifestation is crazy!
What do you think is the best way to make it as an artist nowadays?
Personally I think it’s about how consistent you are and whatever you think makes you different— go with it and don’t listen to anyone else because what makes you different, makes you stand out.
What would you change in the music and entertainment industry especially after this past year?
I would love for punk music and alternative rock bands to make a come back
