On how "Bunny" came to be:

"I've been working on music for a while—I'm kind of a perfectionist. My brother [music producer Zak Dossi] and I have been doing music together for so long. One day, I came home upset at a situation that happened and my brother made a cool beat. I was like, 'Wait, I'm going to hop on this right now and make some lyrics up!' My brother told me that I had a great voice and maybe we could make something cool together." 

On working on music with her brother:

"We've always been best friends which makes it really easy to tell stories about my experience in life. We have a great trust with each other—which makes it way easier to open up." 

On the story behind the "Bunny" lyrics:

"It's about my first real crush. He really hurt me. It's all about the emotions I went through and everything I was feeling. I *wanted* to hate him...but deep down I knew I didn't. The song was about processing all of those emotions." 

On the lyric that stands out most:

"I was hoodwinked when I blinked/felt like I woke up to a real bad dream. That lyric speaks to me—it's exactly how I felt. I went from being so happy to everything being gone." 

On what she hopes people heart about the single:

"If you're going through any heartbreak, play this song. It'll get better!"
