ilham on creating ‘in my room’
‘This is a fun song I made with Slim and Rain. When I got in the studio, they kept telling me to go into the booth and just sing, freestyle words. That’s really different for me since I’m the type of artist who likes to sit down and write lyrics. But of course, the energy was great, then I just began to freestyle and have fun with it. This song is a freestyle where we just sang whatever came to our heads. It’s a feel good song.
It’s also the first song I engineered myself. During quarantine I wanted to challenge myself and learn to record and comp myself. But I was so scared of the idea. However after a day of sitting with logic, I ended up learning something new and recorded myself for the first time, which is exciting.
what ilham wants her fans to get out of ‘in my room’
I hope this song enlightens peoples spirits and makes being in their room less mundane. Encouraging them to get up, dance, pull yourself together! It’s easy to feel lost in a routine while social distancing but we can use this time to work on ourselves.
