"Drunk Instead" draws inspiration from a situation that we can all relate to. We caught up with the vocalist and she shared her thoughts on the personal track's creative process:
"Drunk Instead" is an anthem for the girls who are tired of settling for situationships when they know they deserve something real and committed. The lyrics I wrote are like my own journal of standing up for myself and recognizing my own worth. The song captures the frustration and disappointment of being in a relationship where there's no real commitment — but at the same time, you love the person who hurts you. It's a message for anyone who's been in that situation and decides they're done settling for less than they deserve.

She shared the following statement on an Instagram caption detailing the track: "I’ve always believed that a woman’s love is one of the most powerful things in this world. While I’ve been open about my sexuality throughout my career, I’ve recently realized that my feelings extend beyond someone’s gender or preferences.
In my debut mini album, “Sweet Nothings (Chapter 1),” there’s a song called “Sugar N’ Spice” that personally stands out in terms of the way it was made. It’s a light, positive, and love-filled track, and interestingly, it’s the only one in the album celebrating a woman’s love. This song reflects my belief that love is love, and everyone should be free to love whomever they choose. This message isn’t just for the queer community; it’s for everyone who believes in love, no matter its form.
I want to share the beautiful experience of falling for a woman, something I treasure so deeply.
I’ve never been so excited for a music video to come out, and I hope you celebrate love with me in all its beautiful forms."
