"Now people only listen to a few seconds of a song, they don't really invest in the whole album. It's all about the single, the hype! There is so much that happens between the music, the artists and the fans. I didn't want anybody to give the message that my record is coming out I just want this to come out when its ready and for me to my fans," she added.
