She said, “My Debut album is about great music. My last song was Gelato and honestly, I have a point to prove. I don’t want people to get it twisted; just because I’m a fun person doesn’t mean that I’m not a credible musician. I haven’t been doing this for a year for fun; I have art to create and I cannot wait for this album.”
