“I had a lot of fun co-writing and building on playful and flirty ideas for FWU, which was very much a collaboration with the other writers, Alex Jacke, Merges, and Rikki Randall. This song is definitely one of my more explicit records, and that’s what I love about it, its edginess and a great beat. Although we recorded the song before the pandemic, I really wanted to wait to release it in the summer,” said Kocher.
“The idea for the music video was for my friends, dotted all around the world from London, Russia, Asia, and America, to remotely use Snapchat, in the safe environment of their homes, and create a unique video of their interpretation of the song. It was actually such a fun process, being able to see my friend’s reactions when they heard the song for the first time. It’s got quite the lyrics to it!
‘FWU’ is Kocher’s debut record with Laney Stewart to be released, with two more set to be released later this year. For her upcoming music, Tiana has collaborated with several GRAMMY award-winning recording artists including TLC, Faith Evans, Sage the Gemini and Latin reggaeton J. Alvarez amongst others, as well as multiple award-winning record producers including Leon “RoccStar” Youngblood, and Warren Kurtiss and Tyler Reynolds of Dawty Music Group.
‘FWU’ is available for download on iTunes and all digital streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Tidal, SoundCloud, Pandora, DEEZER, iHeartRadio, Google Play, and Xbox Groove.
