Out of My Mind Featuring Manny Wave: For the second track the music is still high energy but with a smoother touch to it that adds a nice R&B and Pop appeal to it, that makes it sound like hit that was meant to travel. The melodies are masterful in their tone to slide through the music just right, while the rapping brings that extra flex on this stand out record.

6 Doors Featuring Indi Blue: After the high energy of the last record, they slow it down to make a true love song. The production setting an emotive tone with hard drums matched with piano and guitar chords to make the writing truly resonate, as the vocals deliver the right vulnerability necessary to bring it all home.
