Taking to Instagram to share the creation process of the album, Victoria said it was a tough process that forced her to tap on ‘Zebra energy’ as is seen in her album cover.
“Every part of creating Spirit Animal was a challenge … every single detail… I had to tap into that Zebra energy for real! I can’t believe it’s finally out. Thank you Jesus!!!!! One day I’ll tell the story about how It all went down … in the meantime… keep streaming and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and feedback so far,” she explained.
The album comes barely two weeks after Victoria dropped the visuals for ‘Remedy’ which is one of the singles in ‘Spirit Animal’.
‘Remedy 'is a sensual love song, in which Victoria pays tribute to her Kikuyu culture by adorning traditional attire.
