“Parlay” is another record that caught our attention from your project. Can you tell us about the record, the creative process and how you were feeling on this record?
Random, I don’t know where that vibe came from, to be honest. I was sitting in the living room with my mom & sis (they was watching housewives & I was In the corner with my headphones on) I wrote that song so quick, I think just Bc I was surrounded by good vibes. That’s key, get u some good vibes baby.
