Word on the street is you're working on an album? How has the process been for you and what can we expect from this release?
Chippy: Hi! How are you? Yes, I am working on an album. It's taking longer than I anticipated. LOL. It's weird, because I make music really fast and release it fast so holding on to music gives me so much anxiety, but it's fun, just working on music and not playing that many shows I guess. I'm just excited to finish it, put it out and tour. It's going to be really refined compared to my old stuff. A lot of pop sounding tracks, but also a lot of interesting, different tracks. It's going to be a full rounded fun album with some surprising elements of songs with actual depth and content. I think all my old songs don't really have any substantial content or a message other then like ; ' I don't give a fuck let's just have fun' which is a good message, but when working on an album I wanted to be more personal, vulnerable and maybe even make slight impact if I can.
We noticed you have been partying with Kreayshawn lately, can we expect one of your music videos directed by Kreayshawn?
Chippy: I mean, I haven't really been partying with Kreayshawn lately, we went to Skrillex Birthday party, but that was the extent of the partying. But she is a really close friend of mine and I love her. I think I'm going to get her on a song on the album, I like working with her a lot and with friends in general. I really want her to do one of my videos for the album for sure.
You have said that you cook Tandoori Chicken. Are you a secretly talented chef?
Chippy: Lmao! Well...my mom is literally the best cook ever. She forced me to learn how to cook a bunch of stuff before I moved out. I wouldn't really say I am a talented chef, but I mean I can cook a pretty good meal.
Swizz beats had begun to follow you on twitter, what artist has got you the most excited because they started to follow you on twitter?
Chippy: Skrillex. LOL
Finally Verified was a huge success and Bang Bang was a standout track on the EP, what inspired that track?
Chippy: I don't know if 'Finally Verified' was a huge success, but thanks. Bang Bang is my favorite track on the album. I don't I had been going into the studio with Felix for a while and he just played that beat for me, because he knew I liked 'ethnic' sounding beats, so he played that. I always say that when I like someone I would literally do anything for them, theres not much depth to that song. I like reggeaton and I guess I'm a self proclaimed 'ride of die chick' in the song. Lol
You recently remixed a Reggeaton song titled Rakata by Wisin and Yandel, what made you decide to go in that direction and are their future projects to be on songs with dem bow beats?
Chippy:Um...Basically I just got a new microphone in my room and I wanted to record something and I just like that song. It wasn't really something I over thought. I'm just obsessed with that song and I made it. So far there aren't any reggaeton-ish sounding stuff.
I might try to sneak one in there though..Lmao .
You will be performing at Brokechella, what can a new fan expect from your performance?
Chippy: I would like to think that my live show is the best part of me, as an artist. If you didn't 'understand' me before after seeing my live show and how much I care about it, how much it excites me and how much I put into it, I feel like if you don't understand why I am doing this after watching me live, you probably just have no heart...lol. My live show is something I put everything into and I hope that's transparent to people even if they don't really like the music, they appreciate my energy.
You will be on the same bill with the M|O|D crew at Brokechella, how has it been performing and partying with the M|O|D crew?
Chippy: Well I'm dating one of them, so we are all mostly really close...... lol...hope he doesn't kill me for saying this......*oops* They are all amazing and extremely talented people though and I've grown really close with them. I really hope this year they thrive as much as they deserve to, they are literally one of the best people and talented producers I've been around...and trust me I've been around A LOT.
Anything you want to tell your fans?
Chippy: Love you! <3 and stay happy and positive, even though I always have a hard time staying at a positive energy, I will always try to bring myself up for my fans and always keep making music and thriving for them and myself. <3
Luv xoxo Chip
