by Dev

Album: Bittersweet July (2014)


  • Dev told Artist Direct the story of the song: "I had the 'Kids' hook for two years and I had no idea what to do with it or how to record it or what verses to write. It is fun and nonchalant, but I sat on it for the longest time."

    "My producer did a rough version of the beat, then I laid the hook and then wrote the verses in one day," she continued. "It came out great. And it is fun. But it took forever. I am back in my zone."
