“It’s so crazy, timing for me is everything,” she says. “I think that everything seems to be working right on time. People have been asking about my solo album for such a long time. When I originally came from Cheetah Girls, I was making music that was real to me but not believable. I think there was a disconnect there. I am a grown woman and I’ve been through a lot. The most important thing about my music is that we don’t jump the gun and throw anything out there. I want to make sure that it’s going to actually connect with my audience.”
Indeed, the themes explored on Bailon’s solo album will likely reflect her views on the tribulations of love and relationships. After being involved in a highly publicized relationship while dating Rob Kardashian, Bailon has learned the value of doing things more discreetly when it comes to matters of the heart.
“I think the most important thing that I’ve learned is that you live and you learn,” she admits. “Try not to make the same mistakes twice. This time around for me, I think it’s just something you have to keep sacred. You have to keep to yourself and keep things private. Control it as much as you can.”
