    Pierzy! (If I’m first anyway)

    They leaked that on purpose and they know it. Has anyone heard it by the way? Is it any good? I’m thinking of buying in for inspiring purposes.

      I’ve heard it. It’s something different than the typical music we getting. It’s not on no lyrical type stuff, but it is pretty left field. I’m buying it when it drops. It does give you ideas if you’re a writer or producer. It’s basically a fusion of various genres.
