Tell us about your new single “Do It For The Gram.”
I think my previously recorded music was coming from an honest place. I was really sad and very depressed when I put out my last project. Being an artist, I needed to get those feelings out of me. My new music is so unapologetic. I was tired of feeling down and depressed. So, when I hear my [new] music, it pumps me up and makes me feel better about myself, about life and starting a new day. So, I just wanted my music to feel like how I want to feel.
Describe the LeA Robinson brand.
LeA is lit. She’s cool. She’s somebody that you can talk to and pop off with in the same breath. I’m a chill person. I like [good] vibes around me, and I don’t like anything that does not add to having a good time. I love good energy, I’m such an empath, so I feel everything. The vibes around me have to be good. I’m a hard worker. I love God. I trust God with everything. My faith is super strong. I’m not a perfect person, but I’m a good one.
