DO I SAD?: An Andrea Inspired Mixtape
It’s been ages since I put together a mixtape and I’ve been sitting on a lot of gems, waiting to be unearthed. These songs aren’t really a bummer, even though the title suggests otherwise.

Anddddd, as usual…I’ve included a bonus secret throwback track for those of you who make it all the way through the end. Enjoy!
