“She’s been looking for love in all the wrong places and just can’t seem to meet the right one. Until she least expects it. It happens right before she finally gives up one night, not looking for it”.
“My approach was to start with the chorus first with every song. I picked this up from the way Dr. Dre produced the artists that he’s worked with through interviews I’ve seen. The hook literally just came to me as I pushed myself creatively through free-styling. I couldn’t help but channel Prince’s spirit as “Baby your loves in chains” came to mind. I immediately caught a second wind and the rest of the chorus became a natural performance in studio. The rest of the song was inspired by a music video I’d seen maybe two or three weeks prior to me being in NYC. It was a Prince video…Purple Rain – the one with the beautiful girl watching him perform. I don’t know why I thought of that, but my creative inspiration just seem to gravitate toward that mental visual. Hence the songs premise*”
