It’s a collaboratoin that started when Pink Sweat$ reached out to us. He said he viewed my cover of his song ‘Honesty’ that I posted on Twitter. It also felt like destiny because he already had the song titled ’17.’

He is an artists with a cool mindset. He says he always makes music while thinking about the influnece it will have on people and that’s how I realized that’s the reason his music sounds so warm and comforting.

For Joshua’s interview, Elle Korea commented on how Pink Sweat$ mentioned the charms of K-Pop. Joshua replied and expressed how he loved the idea of artists learning from one another.

Q: “You collaborated with Pink Sweat$ alongside DK. He mentioned in a recent Forbes interview that one of K-Pop’s charms is its bright energy.”

We chatted over a video call and discussed how he learns from K-Pop’s energy, styling, and visual elements like videos. It feels good knowing that theres is this interaction, since we also gain inspiration from international artists.
