With technology and social media degrading our ability to develop real life, interpersonal connections with each other, rising r&b/pop sensation Shenna
provides some commentary on the matter with her brand new single “Conversation,” released today (7/13/2018) and making its debut on PopDust
“I wrote this song because I feel that a lot of times people avoid telling someone they care about the truth, afraid they will hurt them but in reality it’s hurting both sides by not having a real personal conversation to hash out problems.” – Shenna
