I honestly couldnt say. I love MJ growing up so probably like Dirty Diana or Billie Jean or something.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
“do it because you love to do it, not because you have to do it .” and ” Just have fun with it”
I used to be really concerned with whar people would say about me or think about m, but my pops always told me that i didnt need to impress anybody, because I loved it. And as long as I
enjoyed what I loved, then i dont need to care what anybody thinks.
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?
Have fun with music, it shouldnt be taken so seriously to the point where you start resenting. Remember why you got involved with music and if you ever feel discouraged, look at where you started.

Lmao the quote that popped into my head immediately was ” Life is like a box of chocolates , you never know what your going to get.”
