“Gator Season” is basically me telling the world, ‘No matter how much pressure you put on me, I’m gonna pull through.’ That’s the most simple way I can sum it up. “Gator Season” is me loving on myself. Me telling you, this time is my time,” she told Girls United.

Through this new chapter, Brooke is about to embark on with Arista Records and Team Eighty Productions. With her latest visual for her single “Here I Come,” creating more traction for the rapper, she’s gearing up to drop new music this year with even more energy and punchy lyrics.
