“I was cripplingly anxious … I took a break at the beginning of the pandemic. I started doing therapy [and] trying to feel better,” she said.
Her struggles will be evident on her upcoming album, the 25-year-old said.
“I just word-vomited into a mic in the form of a melody. It really doesn’t get more personal than that. I was all stream of consciousness,” she said.
She’s now in a better place, and she attributes that to her vulnerability and efforts to heal.
“There’s a sense of trust in myself that I feel like I didn’t have before because I was so anxious all the time,” she told People. “I really feel like I’m living my truth and I’m speaking my truth.”
“Familia” is set for release Friday.
