When asked about her latest single Haley said, “I think that everyone can do better at times, so it’s a common feeling whether it’s a feeling that we have towards ourselves or the people we keep in our lives. Above all, I always want my songs to be relatable. I think that if you put your heart energy into any music that you create and make it come from a relatable place, that’s how great music is made. “Do Better” is a playful anthem for when we need to do better, because sometimes that’s really all there is to say – do better.”
