“I only want to make things that mean something to me completely void of algorithms or strategy approaching my 6th project, i’m not chasing anything but joy with this s**t. f**k a box i love y’all for the way you love me!! “, she said in reference to the upcoming album Blue Water Road, which does not yet have an official release date.
