Chemistry is Everything

There is something to be said about the chemistry between an artist and their producer. When a producer and artist understand each other the results are phenomenal. They create a joint message through their work, and it’s something that shouldn’t be taken for granted, especially in this ‘fast food’ music industry.

Since my Grammy features went over so well I am going to Continue reading
