Trina recently talked to the Recording Academy about a song she dedicated to her mom on her latest album.
“My mom was kinda sick when I was in the studio making this song, and I was in a really down place,” the “Love & Hip Hop” reality star told The Recording Academy at the time.
. “… I called her on the phone, [but] she wasn’t feeling so good, so that inspired the song. I just went into the studio with all these emotions … and that’s how it came out.”
“Respect, admire, love your mom,” Trina continued. “You only get one mom in the entire world. You can never, ever get another one. No matter what happens, one only comes your way, that’s a blessing.”
Just a few months before her mom passed, Trina wrote this about her on Instagram.
