Love song “Text Threads” was produced by Ayo & Yung Ladd and samples Montel Jordan’s classic “This is How We Do It.” Paying homage to theme song of hit television show Living Single, “Overrated” was produced by D’Mile and celebrates his happy family life with his loving wife and newborn son. With its feel good groove and Caribbean influences, “Viral” was produced by Bangahs and is a party anthem celebrating the ladies.
