TigerBeat: Tell me about the writing process of â€œLove Is the Nameâ€?
Sofia: “It was inspired by an original song â€“ the (5:18) track â€“ and when I heard the song, we just fell in love with the beat the rhythm, and it was so infectious. I loved it from the very start.”
TigerBeat: So how did you decide to make that song your single?
Sofia:“It was a collective decision between the two labels, the team, and myself. I think the fact that the original song was such a global hit already helped a lot, because that melody is very infectious and already in peopleâ€™s minds. We also loved that the song sounded so global, and thatâ€™s what we want with my music. We want it to be global and very international sounding. We all thought it was a terrific track because Iâ€™m a dancer, and dancing is who I am as a performer.”
As for being in the studio? There’s nothing like it!
“When youâ€™re inside that studio itâ€™s like no one exists besides you and the song, and you are kind of trapped in that world for a while. When you know that you finish the song and feel good about it, itâ€™s really, really special. Some songs you just click with. I really clicked with â€œLove Is The Name.â€ The session was really quick, and it was easy, and it was exciting for all of us. I knew something special was coming from it.”
We’re so thrilled for Sofia, and can’t wait to hear more music!
