The singer admitted that it “took a minute” to get to the point where she was ready to release the new project.

The singer also revealed that she already did a photo shoot for the album with photographer Brian Smith. She then admitted that she wasn’t “sure if I’m allowed to say that.” However, she said she felt “really free” during the shoot.
