Russ' "Losin Control" is heavy with acutely realistic details and reflections on a relationship, but the singer-songwriter-producer says writing his rising hit was much more of an chance process than one that was thoroughly planned out. Watch above as the latest FM First artist shares his creative process.
"Lot of times, songs write themselves and a lot of times I have to figure what my intuition and my subconsciousness is talking about," Russ shares about his "Losin Control" single. "I know it's a done deal if the second the beat comes on that the melody pops out—and the first thing I started singing was the hook. At that time, I wasn't in a relationship so I was like 'What the hell is this about?' but that's what came out so I had to go piece back what the hell I was even talking about."
