"I've gotten so many wonderful DMs from individuals, like, 'I lastly stopped talking to this individual as a result of I listened to "New Rules" sufficient instances!' And that's essentially the most you may hope for as a songwriter, I feel, that it's truly had an influence and helps individuals. That's the dream."
