Young M.A's breakout hit "Ooouuu" has helped the New York rapper become one of 2016's breakout stars, but the MC tells us she wasn't even sure if she should release it initially.
The FM First artist tells us how she initially treaded waters with the track after realizing it was a departure from her past material:
When 'Ooouuu' was created, I was a little scared. I didn't know how people were going to take to it, because it wasn't me crazy spitting bars, storytelling or whatever the case that people were so used to me doing. So I was kind of skeptical about putting it out because it wasn't on my mixtape. I remember playing it for my bros, nobody had heard it, and I was like 'I got something for y'all' and everybody just started dancing. They're like, 'Yo, this right here?!' Everyone was excited, but I was like, 'I don't know if I'm going to put it out or not.'"
