“I love to write in my mind as I’m driving,” she recently told Billboard about her creative process. “I put on a track, an instrumental, and just ride around and see what I come up with… I feel like that’s one of the major tests: Can I ride around to this song? And if I can’t, then I’m like, ‘We need to fix the song so that it’s one of those songs you can put in the car and drive to.’”
