“I have an understanding of contracts, marketing and more! It is also cool to know that for resources or additional knowledge, I can lean on my professors and former classmates." While at NYU, Whitt had the opportunity to intern at Roc Nation, Atlas Music Publishing, and TouchTunes.
To build enthusiasm for her music, Whitt has arranged a few contests on her Instagram page. Most recently, in support of “So Hard,” she gave away $250 to help pay a follower’s bills.
Whitt answered a few questions by email:
Tell us about your song “So Hard.”
“So Hard” is such a special song. To be transparent, I suffer from depression and I wrote the track back in March of this year. I also had Covid-19 at the time and on top of that, I was in between jobs making minimum wage and on unemployment. I wanted to write how I felt, what I was going through at the time. I wrote the first verse and hook and sketched out the second verse melodies but couldn’t quite figure out what to say. I had a conversation with my manager, Alexis, and asked if she could help me write the second verse. The rest is history! I wanted to create a song about real life things and share my story.
How has Obama’s playlist impacted your life?
What’s next for you?
More music, more visuals, and more content! I’m thankful to everyone’s support thus far!
NYU was an amazing experience! [I'm] grateful for the connections I made and the knowledge of the industry I was able to take away.
