Lending her own vocals to her zesty production style, “MIAMI” is a brilliant addition to her already impressive repertoire.
“MIAMI is one of those magical places everyone needs to go once in their lifetime. One night I was sitting in bed and played those 4 chords on my Casio then sang the first line ‘Take me to MIAMI I’ve never been before’ I know this year has taken a toll on all of us, and we all deserve the escape & free spirit that MIAMI embodies.” -XIE
