Aly & Aj reveal inspiration ahead of 2020 re-release!
Aly & Aj have always kept it real with their fans and been open about the meanings behind their lyrics. The duo has finally shared how they feel about re-visiting their stardom past.
“None of it is ever a secret, we’re always willing to share,” the singer revealed. “It’s just that sometimes, speaking on songs that existed so long ago and were a part of your childhood — whether it was a heartbreak or a great relationship or whatever it might be — you kind of feel embarrassed to go backwards and address it because it was such a different chapter in your life. You don’t feel as connected to it anymore, now that you’re an adult.”
However, the stars have gone backwards and addressed their 2007 hit song. Not only did they remix it to become an explicit version but gave it a major glow-up. The 2020 release is out now so take a listen!
