Does PRETTYMUCH have an album coming soon?!
Following their epic New York City FOMO Tour show (which you can catch an up-close and personal look at in our Instagram Story, @TigerBeatNow) we caught up with the guys — Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Austin Porter, Nick Mara, and Zion Kuwonu — to get the inside scoop on their latest single, “Lying” (featuring 18-year-old rapper Lil Tjay), what artist they want to team up with next, and whether or not they have an upcoming album in the works.
Keep scrolling to catch the 411 on all things PRETTYMUCH, and find out what the talented five-some had to say!
What’s your favorite line of lyrics from “Lying” and why?
Brandon: “Just bought this California king and it’s expensive.” I literally wrote that because I recently got all new bedding and I balled out and spent way too much money but now my bed super comfy!
Nick: “It hits me right in the chest but I still wish you the best until I see you again” because I try to never have hate in my heart and no matter how much someone can do me wrong, I will always wish them the best.
Edwin: “But I’m lying when I talk to you ’cause you’re lying under someone new” because its such a clever way of telling the person you love that you really feel pain and can’t get over the fact that it’s over!
Zion: “I’ve been going out cuz I been goin’ out.”
Austin: “In case you’re wondering, I’m counting blessing” because it’s ear candy!
How does Lil Tjay’s musical style complement your own?
Brandon: He’s dope, we’re dope together. Easy!
Nick: Lil Tjay has more of a melodic style and he fits in perfectly because we all got along real well. He’s definitely one of the homies now!
Edwin: Lil Tjay is just so unapologetically him so I feel like our energies work well together. He’s also our age so we can relate coming up in the music industry at the same time.
Zion: Tjay’s style compliments us because he’s a trap-rap singer with crazy melodies.
Austin: We both respect the craft!
Who’s your next dream collaboration?
Brandon: I want to work with a DJ like Marshmello or Diplo.
Nick: Not sure, but whoever they may be, I want them to be a part of the whole song — not feel forced — just like [our collaboration with] Lil Tjay.
Edwin: Next dream collaboration for me would be Khalid…we’re great friends and would make the best music!
Zion: Next dream collab would be Lido.
Austin: Tobi Lou!
Can fans expect an album any time soon?
Brandon: Not sure when, but hopefully soon!
Nick: If it’s not an album just expect music! We are just working and creating good music.
Edwin: Not sure yet We are still working through our sound and what we want to album to be.
Zion: For sure! Expect one.
Austin: Yes! That’s all we will say.
