“I don’t know how young you are, but as you must know, when you’re at the end of you’re 20s it’s a very important growing time,” she says in a new interview.

“You kind of let go of childish things and accept the wisdom that comes with age,” she explains. That’s exactly where I am now,” she adds.

Her song lyrics read:

“So you wanna play with magic
Boy you should know what you’re falling for
Baby do you dare to do this
Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse.”
