The Texas artist relived the viral moment while talking to xoNecole’s Kayla Walker in an exclusive interview.

“It was crazy. It was something I didn’t expect to happen,” she recalled. “I didn’t know what I was gonna do with ‘Buss It,’ so when I signed to 1501, they were like, you should put this out.
