“It felt like a huge breakthrough, as it shifted the music industry’s perception of me and what I could do,” Petras said in an interview with Cosmopolitan.

“Therapy was necessary for me after having a huge song, to learn how to shut everything off,” she said.

“I had a therapist in my teen years and stopped when things got busy. But I missed having someone to let everything out to. I recommend therapy to everyone; it’s an essential tool … The music industry can get very hectic.”
