Ashthon tells us about the inspiration behind her new song.

Boss XL Mag - What was the inspiration for this new song?

Ashthon Jones - I honestly wrote this song around the time Covid was slowing down and we were able to move around more in the world. It was like an anxious feeling to “Pop Out” and do what I wanna do. Secondly, I wanted to let everyone know that it’s my time! I been working so hard over the years! I had to put it in they faces and MAKE THEM SEE ME!

Boss XL Mag - What are your plans for yourself and the song going forward?

Ashthon Jones - My goal was to use this song as the gateway to my new upcoming music I’m dropping soon! I’m in the middle of working on my album! I feel like it’s a great way to start the summer and give people something to bop to while I work on my project! I’m so grateful to have my song Chart #8 on ITunes top 40 in less than a week of my release! I’m addicted to that feeling now, so the goal moving forward is to chart on Billboard!!
