The song came about because I have a Bestfriend and we have this crazy bond we’re I feel like I can be myself around her, so one day I’m just chillen and I just thought why not make a Bestfriend song that everyone can relate too, and it’s weird but I knew the song would get a lot of attention before I even recorded it.
How have you ended up in the music industry?
