About Little Crush:
“Sleazy Punk Rock n Roll with a Glamorous Royal coat”
The record “Little Crush” was written by Laudez Rose & producer Richard Burton. It sums up Indya pretty well! Leather, lace, in your face, glam, sexy, classy, sassy, her high heel fetish, seduction, being a tease. The song is about someone she had a major crush on about 8 years ago.
