“Locked up at home, I focused more on the music. So everyday I sat in my home studio and just wrote and made recordings. I recorded over 50 songs, so I decided to select a few of the tracks, then added some popular singles I did for other producers and created this album, ‘FEND ‘.
“I’ve never waited for anyone for anything in my entire life. I always make my moves, and with that positive aggression, the universe always sends me help along the way. “FEND” stands for doing things without the help of others, and that word fits my description, so I decided to write a song based on that, and also give the name to the album,” Blake said.
