Originally released in September of last year, “Big Energy” has become a hit with serious legs, recently hitting a new Billboard Hot 100 peak at No. 3. Speaking on how the track fits into the larger aim of 777, which follows 2020’s Queen of da Souf, Latto recently told Jessica McKinney for Complex that the single marked an “introduction” of sorts.

“I wanted to solidify myself and where I fit in the industry,” she said in the March-published feature. “This is just the first introduction. ‘Big Energy’ is the pop sound from this project. I got an R&B sound. I got the rap trap sound. I got some rhythmic stuff that I did with Pharrell, just different swaggy stuff.” 

Further addressing the continued success of “Big Energy,” Latto explained how the knowledge of having “new eyes” on her work inspired her to keep versatility at the forefront. 

“I wanted to get my bars off and let people know that I do songs like “Big Energy” and showcase my versatility, but let them know where the passion started in the first place,” she explained. “And that was rapping—just getting the bars off, no hook freestyles.”
