The project has already racked up over 155 million streams.
“When it comes to music I love, I don’t really get wrapped up in boundaries or genres. I thought we were gonna stop with the collaborations with Bettie James, and then I was like, man, there’s so much music out there that I love, so many artists that I love, and I just wasn’t done,” says Allen of the impetus for the new project. “There’s some pop, there’s some rock, there’s some country, there’s some R&B… When I was writing some of the songs, I was trying to picture each moment. I went to each artist to work with them so they could be who they are on the song and bring their greatness to the song – I feel like that’s what makes the songs better.”
