“Monster” features a calm and collected beat with a swaying, falling melody that oozes a fresh, lustrous vibe.

The lyrics detail a message of how some people bring out the best, or the worst qualities in us. “Monster” talks of that one person who made you feel something you’ve never felt before, reminding you to never take them for granted. Lloyd explains, “When you have something that makes you feel that good you need to hold onto it because at the end of the day happiness is everything. It’s possible to get blinded by so many things in life but it’s important to catch yourself and give praise and thanks to those who deserve it.”
