“I asked him to let us do something creative, so he wrote for me, and we discussed what could stay and what should change. I sit in the studio when he is writing, and then we look at what he has and say ‘let’s change this, this doesn’t rhyme’. I am very particular about the lyrics, I don’t want to use.”
Big Ivy also added that she has a single and an EP coming.
