Artist Quote Explaining Inspiration For Making “Same Sky”:
Same Sky was created for self motivation. The title is pretty much enjoying the fact that none of us are the same but we all share the Same Sky. It was inspired by a lyric from my single ‘Rainbows’ where I say: “we might not all pray to the same god, have the same taste but we all got the same sky”. Those lyrics really spoke to who I am and how I view the world.
