And going by her fan's reactions, the EP is clearly a hit as many are already sharing their favorite tracks off there record. "Loving the ep!!!!" stated one fan, "My two ultimate favs are Sinner and Crisis," shared another and one fan posted a screenshot of the track 'When I'm Sober' playing off their playlist, adding, "My favorite off the ep."
