In an interview with Billboard she stated:

“When I do ‘Sam & Cat,’ and when I act as Cat, of course I’m still going to be there for my younger fans, but I’m also growing up, I’m almost 20. I’m not going to do anything crazy, but I want to do music that I’m passionate about. I’m finally at an age where I can do the music that I grew up loving, which was urban pop, 90s music. I grew up listening to the divas, so I’m very happy to finally do urban pop. I hope that it’s received well.”
