“Drama was perfect because it’s what’s constantly happening in my life. I wanted to record that was unique but also had a chaotic Ness to the beats I didn’t want a sad record I wanted a club banger I wanted something I’ll as an artist could do heavy Choreo to in performance while still conveying a story”
