Stefflon Don Says “Expect More Meaningful Stuff” From The Album
She initially announced the project would arrive last year, but it never materialized. However, in a new interview, Stefflon Don declared she’s ready to share Island 54 with her fans.
“Expect more meaningful stuff because, as a person, I’m very big on important messages and reality,” Stefflon Don explained in her upcoming cover interview for Hunger Magazine. “I don’t feel like that comes across in my music because I focus on having the greatest time and twerking. So, yes, we have the fun element, and we also have another element where we get a little bit serious.”
Elsewhere during the interview, the “Hurtin Me” hitmaker shared a message of self-love, encouraging others to be their best selves.
“People think you’re competing with everyone,” she stated. “But if you’re the best version of yourself people can’t compare you to anyone else.”
The message echoed a similar sentiment Stefflon Don shared with her young fans earlier this year, warning them, “Stop idolizing the ‘It’ girls.”
