Led in on a soft piano, its soulful entrance gives room for its hard-hitting core, where once again lead songstress Aux’ exceptional vocals dress the track with harmonies, melody and her own charming persona. Aux’ keeps it real, speaking to being resourceful and making it work on the minimum and with the new quirky visuals, she displays her own invention, channelling her creative background as she designed the eye-catching costumes seen throughout.
Speaking on the track, Aux states:
“This is a song about the hustle – starting out in the music game is hard work and the struggle is real. Artists who survive the game rightfully celebrate their success – making tunes and videos like 21 savage’s ‘A Lot’ or Leikeli’s ‘MONEY’ but right now I’m running on minimum capacity. I’m here like “Spotify keep me alive, please and thank you.” Thing is I’ve still got myself respect. I’ll do your BV’s for your gig or whatever – but I’m not gonna sell my talent for chips, my voice is all I have, so your gonna have to pay me, cause I’ve got a minimum rate.”
