What was the inspiration behind your latest single “One Minute”?
Sunny: It’s about a crush that I liked and he didn’t like me back sometimes and sometimes he did. So, I really wanted to touch on that and relate to other girls because I know they go through that especially at this age. I wanted to let them know that I’m going through the same thing as them.

How does this song differ from others that you’ve released in the past?
Sunny: Now, I have an idea of who I want to be as an artist and what I want to portray with my songs and talk about so I think we’re on the right track with this song.

What was your favorite memory from filming the “One Minute” music video?
Sunny: My favorite scene is the pillow scene where we get to throw the pillows at each other…I feel bad for whoever had to clean it up, but it was so much fun to become a kid and just have fun for a minute. I had so much fun on set.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?
Sunny: I think Post Malone is so great. I think Ed Sheeran is an amazing writer, he speaks life through his songs. I think Macklemore is very inspirational. They’re all very different in their own way and that’s why I like them, but they’re all amazing so they’re probably my dream collaborations.

What one message that you hope fans can take away from your music?
Sunny: Just be who you are because social media is a positive and a negative. Young teens get caught up in social media and the atmosphere, so they don’t really enjoy life. My new songs are really going to touch on that right now and just sharing love in the world. You only live once so don’t regret.
