Need a song to call out someone who has been projecting their negative thoughts and feelings on you? Look no further because “BEEF” by GROZ is a perfect fit for this. GROZ lets listeners know this behavior is toxic and unacceptable in this lyrically raw and powerful song. We had the pleasure of interviewing BIZZY, and here’s what she had to say:

Q: What is your best memory from the recording of “BEEF”?

GROZ: Definitely laying down the vocals in a badass recording studio! A bit of a rarity these days as everyone has such sweet setups in home studios, etc. But my producer Jay Marcovitz and fellow songwriter friend Emily Hulslander and I met up at Igloo Studios and had the best time writing last-minute melody changes and recording all the vocals in-house. So rad!

Q: What is one thing you’d like listeners to take away from this song?

GROZ: This is a “stop projecting on me” anthem! It’s a reminder that if someone comes at you hot/ testing boundaries/ twisting truths – it’s never about you. Go grab a mirror for them real quick and say bye!

Q: When did you know this song was complete and ready for release?

GROZ: I actually wrote this song maybe 3 years ago and started on the production, but it wasn’t until a few months ago when it resurfaced in my list of unfinished songs and I just felt it was finally time to put it out into the world!

Q: What do you enjoy most about creating songs?

GROZ: It’s absolute therapy for me. And when I get really deep into it, I feel myself shift/get out of my own way and start channeling some cool shit that somehow makes sense to put to music. It’s the best feeling – there’s nothing like writing a lyric or melody and just sitting with it like, damn that felt good to get out. It could be total crap, or it could lead to a sweet song. Nonetheless, the process is sacred and awesome.

Q: What’s your favorite genre for creating songs? Which do you think allows you to express yourself in a way that most matches your personality?

GROZ: I’ve always started all my songs just vocal/ piano. Intimate, singer-songwriter style with strong lyrics and unique storytelling at the forefront. From there, production steps in and tends to lean into the pop genre. But the creation is always very raw and close to the heart with just vocals and keys holding their own.

Q: What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

GROZ: I left my fiancé of 8 years, blew up my life in LA, and moved to Paris for a couple years! It was surreal, and daring for sure ^.^
