Justin confessed that If We Stay, his previous record took a bit longer to develop. That single had been in the works for over three years, but he never quite found the right place to put it out on. So, when Astralwerks/Universal, approached him with the idea for the Ninja album, he was all for it. He talked to Ivy Adara, and she knocked the vocals off on the single.
Getting a bit nostalgic, Justin shares that Mac Miller was a big influence early in his childhood. In reverence of the artist, he put together a tribute Best Day Ever earlier this year, with Rosie Darling in honor of Mac Miller’s life.
