“West Like” ft. Kalan.FrFr was produced by her longtime collaborators, multi-Grammy Award winning and “Producer of the Year” nominated producers/songwriters The Stereotypes (Bruno Mars, Cardi B., Justin Bieber) who also co-wrote the track, along with Destiny and Kalan.
On “West Like,” Destiny pays loving homage to her West Coast and Latin roots, laying down a groove-heavy, talk-box-enhanced track inspired by the classic G-Funk records of the early ’90s.
“I’m Mexican on my mom’s side, and at family gatherings growing up there was always old-school hip-hop playing,” says Destiny. “This song came from wanting to make a record that perfectly captured that feeling and sound—it’s me talking about what it’s like to be from the West Coast while taking everyone along a ride with me.”
Destiny launched the video for “West Like” via MTV’s “Tune In” series.
