  1. Tell us about your collaboration with AleXa. How did it happen?
    • Spotify’s RADAR team approached my team and pitched an amazing idea to collaborate with a KPop artist, Alexa. I said yes right away and started working on the music. 
  2. Your music is very different from one another. Was it challenging to agree on a tune that you both enjoy?
