American singer/songwriter Shako released his debut single “99 Problems” on May 18th. The song was inspired by an experience Shako had when sitting on the E train in NYC.
He stated “I saw a beautiful couple. They didn’t look wealthy in anyway however, I have never seen two people so happy and in love which sparked the song idea.”
