The latest single ‘Started as a Joke’ showcases Smith not only in his creative element, but also a musician. In a conversation with What’s Trending, Smith said the song isn’t only one of his favorites he has recorded but also has a special meaning as well.
Smith said, “It’s just a story of me trying to I guess uh be a suitor toward Natalie, who this song is about. It’s about our little ventures in 2019.”
He went on to add, “It’s definitely one of my favorite songs that I have put out. It was a fun process and at the very end of the song there is a melody that’s from Natalina, so it all ties in together.”
