This was the follow up record to my self-titled debut full album. I was slowly coming into my own as a writer, and started writing ever-so-slightly more autobiographically. We split the writing between all three of us writers three ways, which was not the case on the album before, so I was able to stand up for myself much more easily. I had shot a video for the song “Real World” that was met with shock and horror by the fans that had known me as “the pop princess”….it was my desire to evolve and include more aspects of myself on this record and in the videos we shot for it. I think this record freaked out the people I was working with, and they eventually initiated parting ways with me for it….freeing me up to start with a clean slate and the freedom to include my true perspective and unique style without judgment.
