The excited rapper couldn’t hide her joy to be releasing new music after a while. “Pretty much. (Feelin’ It) Is like a summertime anthem for my ladies. Basically my comeback after a long while of not releasing music I made this song for my ladies something to vibe to and party to. And it’s just also about all the fake people out there who aren’t really keeping it real, I’m callin’ them out too.” She said. The other tracks in the upcoming project include Uliza Uambiwe, Good Bye, Ratchet Tonight, and Straight.
