Lastly, the artist opened up about her hit 2018 single “One Job.” The musician revealed that the song was inspired by her friend’s tumultuous relationship.

She kept going back to this dude and I was in a session trying to write a song and she was like, they were going through one of the biggest fights of it and I was like ‘I’m trying to be a good friend but also want to get this record done,’ because this record might change my life, which it did So I channeled trying to help her through the song. Then when I was done with the session, I was like, ‘Hey, here. Listen to this. Manifest. Breathe. Listen to this, listen to this, listen to this.”
