Produced by Trevor Muzzy (SonReal, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and more) and co-written with Muzzy and Ashley Maietta (of the trio, Luci), the track dives deep into Gavyn’s relationship with his mental health. “It’s a cry for help from a younger version of myself,” says Bailey. “It’s my personal experience with depression and crippling anxiety, and feeling the need to self-medicate to escape that dark place we’re all capable of falling into.” As a Mental Health Ambassador for CHOC’s (Children’s Hospital of Orange County) Mental Health Initiative, Gavyn’s focus with this new release is to raise awareness and show anyone who is suffering from any kind of mental illness that they are not alone. “I want to connect with others on that level because I know how important it was to me when I was younger to have someone who understood what I was going through,” he says.
