Artwork

Like many other songs, Artwork started off as something I came up with during one of my regular writing sessions.
Something about just throwing ideas out once or twice a week really works for me. I liked the idea so much after I started writing that I wrote the whole song or most of it that weekend.

It also helped that I was not too far removed from the inspiration at the time. 

Artwork is a song about a casual relationship with the “artsy” type / Witchy Vibes type.
A type that seems to be, MY type, I'm finding.

I guess it makes sense for creative people to attract one another.

This song also shared a lot of inspiration and mood with my recent song Be Up.

I worked with Dennis who made the beat for it at his place.
He also filmed the performance video in Downtown Fort Worth!

I went out to Music in Focus studio to have it recorded, mixed and mastered. 
This song was the first one in a while where I felt the need to track it twice to get my voice sounding just right.

Over time I am developing a bit more of an ear. I found it helpful for this song to think of what “character” I was embodying to put myself in the right headspace. 

I have heard several artists describe the various sides of their music or their personality as different characters with different names even. I am starting to brainstorm what mine are for the different kinds of songs I make.

For songs like this one, I also find a picture or two of the inspiration to look at while I am in the booth. Helps bring all those emotions back up. I used to do it when performing heartbreak poems and needed to try and emote a bit more since it doesn't come  as naturally to me. I'd look at photos of my ex before going onstage.


The Artwork was done by the artist Sasha Abramovich.

Hope you enjoy the track!

Lyrics

Hook

My favorite girl she do artwork 
Pussy sweet, starburst

She could tell you how the stars work

Hit the right spot
Make her sing just like a concert

And I'm feeling like I need her 
Got me wrapped around her finger

And I'm feeling like I need her 
Got me wrapped around her finger

 

Verse 1

Anytime is the right time 
Hit my line day or night time

I'm in her room 
Nightline

If I forget my lines 
Camera pan right

My hands wrapped tight 
Around her neck

Lil mama don't play games 
On the internet

She in her room with a painting 
That ain't finished yet

And a new acrylic set 
Looking like a fucking threat

They'd be hard-pressed 
If they tried their fucking best 

 

Pre-Chorus

She a bad habit 
White lies

I forgive her all the time 
Where is my spine

She make plans 
I'm straight to it like a guideline 

 

Hook

My favorite girl she do artwork 
Pussy sweet, starburst

She could tell you how the stars work

Hit the right spot
Make her sing just like a concert

And I'm feeling like I need her 
Got me wrapped around her finger

And I'm feeling like I need her 
Got me wrapped around her finger

 

Verse 2

Sage, candles
Set the mood before I come through

There's moonlight 
On her perfume

Illuminates the view

Our bodies go from two 
To one

I wanna make it feel 
Like love

Girlfriend for the night 
She always gets me right

She knows I love to hear it 
And I eat up all her lies

She tellin me she love me 
While she look me in my eyes

She tellin me she love me 
She know that she gets me high

 

Pre-Chorus

She a bad habit 
White lies

I forgive her all the time 
Where is my spine

She make plans 
I'm straight to it like a guideline 

 

Hook

My favorite girl she do artwork 
Pussy sweet, starburst

She could tell you how the stars work

Hit the right spot
Make her sing just like a concert

And I'm feeling like I need her 
Got me wrapped around her finger

And I'm feeling like I need her 
Got me wrapped around her finger
