As a kid, just listening to I Want To Be Down, every interview I’ve ever had, she’s my favorite, my all-time, my mentor, everything. And I’ve been trying to work with her for years. It was a dream of mine.

“And when it happened this time, it’s not even just music, we connected like sisters. She’s someone that I speak to literally every other day. It’s beyond my expectation.”
