From Baby Shark to Airbnbs, Syd speaks on how she stays inspired

“It’s a feeling,” Syd tells us.

“You have to listen to something, and it has to feel right; it has to feel good. And if it doesn’t, my conscience holds me accountable.”

The GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter, and producer has crafted countless hits, both of her own and alongside the likes of Beyoncé, DEAN, and Tyler, The Creator. In celebration of the release of her new sample pack, Syd sat down with us above to discuss the sources for her seemingly endless creativity and how she stays inspired.
