If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
Directed by Boulevard P, “Love Me” was actually written and first recorded in 2012. GNA co-wrote the single with songwriter, Myles.
The video is a cute display of this, in front of a burger shack with her girls, being approached with same-o, same-o from guys.
She immediately loved the song and what it stood for. The track is about being a confident woman who knows herself, her worth, and above everything all loves herself first. We are seeing this trend and theme in pop culture right now, with women loving themselves and banding together. Perfect timing with “Love Me” and it’s girl power message. The song was produced by T-Nyce, Seth Dyer and Josh Francois.
The beat was originally meant for an intro, but the more GNA wrote to it.. the more it felt like a full out track. Writing this was therapeutic for her, because she’s never really spoken on some of the things mentioned in the song. So far, this is one of GNA’s favorite songs. She’s been getting a bunch of messages from different people telling her how much it’s touched them and how much they can relate to it.

Beautiful new songbird on the rise Ashelee Keating is making a lot of noise right now thanks in part to her new song, “Hurt Me So Good”. Following two years of true reflection of herself and the sound she has created. Not only has she written a hit single in “Hurt Me So Good” completely herself, the song is a real relatable coming of age song that tells her story.
Ashlee the making of “Hurt Me So Good”:
“Hurt Me So Good” brings out a fierce sassy side to me that hasn’t really been seen yet. It’s an upbeat pop/dance song with a little bit of a rock vibe mixed with urban melodic lyrics in the verses. I wanted to do something unique and different showing who I really am, my most authentic self. I was inspired to write this song by realistic situations in my life that can be very relatable to lots of people going through toxic relationships. The message behind it is talking about being with a guy that hurts me so good, but I love the pain so I keep on going back when I know I shouldn’t.”
