Throughout her career, Lorely Rodriguez (who writes, records, produces and performs as Empress Of) has always pushed her own boundaries, crafting consistently vibrant pop hooks that stick to the bone.
In our first installment of 25/8, we caught up with Rodriguez at her home studio in Los Angeles, where she told us how she turns fear into fuel and how she how she goes all in on her music. Check it out above, and keep an eye out for more episodes of 25/8 in partnership with Lexus, who recently went all in on their new sport sedan, the 2021 Lexus IS.
