We Are the In Crowd
about the infamous "
From the Interview Tay: Yeah. We haven’t really talked about this at all. Basically, there was a decision that was made for “Kiss Me Again” that wasn’t a make or break decision, but it was something where we wanted it one way, and somebody at the label wanted it the other way.
