The Wave", which was undoubtedly one of the best songs of 2017, Los Angeles-based artist and producer Elohim returns today with her anthemic new single called "F*ck Your Money", which serves as a fresh precursor to her forthcoming debut album slated to drop later this year via BMG.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the track, Elohim says:
"I grew up with very little money. my parents put all of their focus on our well being; learning the joy of music, feeding us organic food, and living a life full of LOVE. We didn't have the fancy cars, the nice houses or expensive possessions. When my mom could feel my sadness as I discovered we were 'different' from other families, she'd remind me, 'we are rich with love.' I didn't fully grasp the incredible importance of those words until recently. Love has become my main focus in life and i now know how priceless it truly is."
As fro the writing process, Elohim continues:
"A couple of months ago i drove past my childhood home and started singing 'I got love fuck your money' out loud and it all came to me. I began to form the verses, chorus and instrumental melodies in the car. I got home, showered and couldn't stop singing it. I jumped out in the middle of my shower to make a voice note still covered in soap. When I finished my shower I drove straight to the studio to produce and finish the song. when your music and lyrics are coming from a deep genuine place they pour out of you like a faucet you canit stop. This is F*ck Your Money."
