Sway’s Universe: What’s the backstory on Black Widow?
Ernie Gaines: Black widow is a never ending love story about a girl I
used to know. Although physically we no longer exist, metaphysically
tht love burns eternally. Or is it all in my head?
SU: What do you want fans to walk away with after listening to your music?
EG: I want fans to walk away with a true connection and a sense of
nostalgia when they listen to my music.
