How did you get the mega TikTok influencers like Charli D'Amelio to use the song in their videos?
Lonr.: We reached out to Mark Thomas. We love his vibe. I've met him in LA and we've been vibing ever since. Like he's a cool dude. And so yeah, he reached out to the influencers that he knows and they did the videos and probably reached out to some others. And then I feel like from there people just saw a certain amount of influencers doing the same thing. So they're like, "Oh, I'm going to do that too." And then it just trickled down to the masses.
What's your personal take on challenges?
Lonr.: I like them.
Do you think they're cheesy?
Lonr.: I feel like TikTok is a strong variation of everything. So sometimes it could be cringy, but I honestly enjoy watching cringey videos. It's just something funny to laugh at. A lot of the ones that go viral feel almost contagious. They make you want to try them. It just seems like something fun to do. I've always liked to make videos and be a clown on social media. So TikTok is definitely that app where you can express yourself or you know, resonate with people in any way.
Now that you've built this, what's next?
Lonr.: My plan is just, you know, like you said, fan fan, the fire and keep it buzzing, keep it up. And then I've been, I've been working on music you know, staying ahead, just trying to make more music, you know, that would show people and showcase who I am. My plan right now though is to, you know, just push this "A.M." Record as much as possible until the next thing comes out. I like to make a lot of different music so you know, you, you might not like "A.M.," but you'll like "Safe Zone." If these aren't your favorites, that third one could be your favorite. Stay tuned.
