A lot of artists tend to ignore the business aspects of their careers, personally, how involved are you in the commercial aspects of yours?
It is called “music business” so that means there’s the art and there’s the business aspect of music. I definitely will not rule out the part of the business. Although I love the art a lot and I want to be know for the art of music but the business is also as important as the art. “No money No music”
