The song "A Little Love" features Julia Pratt and Mt Joy, two Philadelphia natives. Mt. Joy's journey to success took off when they released their debut single, "Astrovan," in 2016. The bond between the two artists blossomed when Matt of Mt. Joy stumbled upon a cover of their own song posted by Julia on her TikTok. Enthralled by her vocals, Mt. Joy extended an invitation to Julia for her to join them on stage during one of their hometown shows in Philly, creating an instant bond. As their friendship deepened, Julia shared a collection of her personal demos with Matt, among them the track, "A Little Love". The moment Matt heard the track, he was immediately hooked, recognizing its undeniable potential. As a result of Julia's suggestion, the song became a duet. Together, their collaboration breathed new life into the song, infusing it with their unique styles and emotions.
