Tell us about the new song:
BAD is my favorite song I’ve ever written. It’s all about being bad and not trying to hide it. I feel like a lot of male artists sing about picking up girls and I really wanted to write something from a strong female perspective. It’s one of those songs you’re going to want to turn on with your girls when you’re going out and want to get in a playful mood.
Why is it called “Bad”?
When we were writing the song, I kept singing “whys it feel so good to be bad” before we had any other lyrics. There was just something so special about ‘bad’. It felt sexy and strong and I think that grabs people’s attention.
What’s your inspiration for the song?
First off I was inspired by the track. I had taken a year off to discover myself and my sound and I felt like when I heard the track for the first time, I came alive again. Then as soon as we started writing, I really wanted to write about my personality and who I am. I’m always the one encouraging my friends to go crazy and I definitely love to take control.
Tell us about a time when you were really bad:
Wouldn’t you like to know.
Which celebrity would you like to do something bad with?
Who would you love to collab with?
Bruno Mars! He’s the man.
What’s coming up next?
Lots of new songs and shows!
