“I wanna spill my heart on this app like this, ‘Boy Alone’ might be the last time y’all will hear me cry on a song, On G, I was dead a*s down, insecure, scared, depressed, and losing my mind like. I was literally gonna kill myself.

“People I used to look up to stopped showing me love, I looked people in the eye and saw doubt, disrespect and hate. I lost myself, maybe I was just overthinking, I don’t know. “My babe served me breakfast at midnight. I wanted to go crazy,”
