“When writing ‘Fantasy,’ I wanted to capture how hard toxic relationships are and that coming out of those relationships can be so powerful,” says Spencer Smith. “GAYLE and Em instantly connected with the topic and their verses helped take the song to another level.”
Adds GAYLE, “It just felt like such a Lauren Spencer Smith song. I heard this and I was like ‘yes b___h!’ and then I was like ‘wait you want me and Em on this!?? My favorite human beings in one song?’ Then I wrote my silly little lyrics and sang my silly little song, now I’m here, now Lauren’s here and now Em’s here.”
Em added her own thoughts, saying, “Just from the first bar the song is so cool and the fact that she wanted us on it was the greatest honor. We’re living out our Powerpuff dream.”
