This feeling of gratitude never gets old. Finally seeing something you worked so hard on available to the world is truly fulfilling on a higher level. I’ve been a fan of Grande long before his debut mixtape, 800 and his signing to DJ A-Trak’s Fools Gold Records ever happened – this collaboration was a long time coming. We’ve both grown in our artistry over the years and I’m excited to release this song into the world.
“Don’t Feel ‘Em” is the result of our first officially released collaboration, and is a part of my ongoing project “Kids With Dreams” – meant to be a body of work filled with collaborations with new artists that I’m inspired by and have something to offer the current landscape of music.
This record is a call to action – it’s a song about bossing up, moving forward and bringing your people with you when you reach new levels. It strikes a balance between a vibe and a banger. I hope you enjoy the energy of this record. I hope it resonates and you feel what we felt when making the record.

Falling is, at its core, a song about vulnerability, moving on, and the amalgam of feelings that come with leaving heartbreak behind to fall in love again. This song is an honest, introspective look at the feelings one has when love breaks down their walls and asks them to find their faith in love again. This song uses chords, melody, and harmony to show the listener that the feeling of falling in love can be scary, but will make you a better person if you trust the process.
