Paul commented: “First and foremost, “Lil Boo Thang” is meant to be a good time. When I wrote it, I was stressed out on a Thursday afternoon so I just turned on some of the music that makes me happy and imagined that I was celebrating something. I think what makes the song special is the fact that so many of us are ready to just forget about whatever is happening around us and enjoy the good things in life – not just thinking back to good times in the past but creating new ones in the present day.”

“When I wrote it, I had been living in isolation at the cusp of the pandemic freshly after a breakup,” he recalls. “Despite all kinds of distractions, tours, and good things happening in my life, this person just remained a fixture in my mind.

And my friend said ‘you know it’s just funny how even years later those good ones can just creep back in there.'”

Shaé Universe Is Sensational on “Passenger Princess”
Speaking on the new single, Shaé said, “Passenger Princess was birthed from bittersweet feelings about my ex at the time. He’d sent me roses all the way from LA and I still wasn’t over everything we’d been through when I received them so I put all my mixed emotions into this song. I think Passenger Princess is a very special song because not only is the title current and relatable, but the song’s deeper message of not always knowing exactly how to navigate situations is part of being a human with feelings. A part that sometimes frustrates us but hopefully, through this song, people feel seen and confident enough to accept this grey area of life.”
