MEAWW: Congratulations on your American tour! Fans are so excited to see you that more stops had to be added. How do you feel about the overwhelming response?
CAMO: Hey MEAWW!! I’m so so excitedddd. Can’t wait to perform for y’all and show you these new tracks I’ve been working on!!!
MEAWW: Well, you have already established such a strong image. How did you go about preparing for an album till you are satisfied it is authentically ‘CAMO’?
CAMO: I haven’t got this question before. I love it lol. All my songs have been about love and life so they’re all 100% me. I’ve never put too much thought into my music because it came naturally to me. The next mixtape I’m working on is a bit different though! Definitely had to “work” more to find my sound and experiment with different beats and genres. Shoutout to my A&R Torsten. He’s 'sensei'.
MEAWW: You are going to be pretty busy next month. How do you relax during your downtime?
CAMO: I stay at home and eat good food hehe!
MEAWW: Is there anything new that you learned about yourself while touring last year?
CAMO: I think that I gained a lot more confidence in myself and my music. I felt so much love from everyone. Thank y’all so so muchhhh!
MEAWW: You definitely have gathered fans all around the world. Where else would you like to tour next?
CAMO: EVERYWHERE. I want to be able to visit every country out there.
MEAWW: Which song of yours describes your life the best?
CAMO: It’d be a mix of all of them! They all represent a specific part of my life, so together that’d be me.
MEAWW: You have so many cool tattoos. Do you have a favorite?
CAMO: I don’t have a favorite one haha!
MEAWW: If you were not an artist, what would you like to do?
CAMO: I think I would’ve studied for CPA or law.
MEAWW: You have worked with several amazing rappers. Who would you like to collaborate with next?
CAMO: A dope ass female rapper.
MEAWW: What genre of music would you like to try that you haven’t done before?
CAMO: Maybe POP?
MEAWW: You use your emotions to write your songs. So, what inspired your latest single ‘Freak Like Me’?
CAMO: I just wanted to make a bad b*tch winter anthem haha!
MEAWW: It has also been a while since you released ‘Fragile’. Can we get a spoiler for your next album?
CAMO: YESSS. I’m dropping a full-length mixtape so y’all are gonna get a lot of new songs and vibes! Can’t say too much, but you guys will be able to see soon. I can’t wait <3
MEAWW: What is something new that you want to show with your next album?
