“Scenic Drive is actually one of the spots that I go to or I went to a lot in El Paso,” the singer recent told Zane Lowe. “It’s this drive up this mountainside and then you look to the left and you see Juarez and see El Paso. Lights. Lights. It’s the perfect place to go at night. It’s one of those places you go with your friends and you park on the side and you hop out the car and you just sit in awe of how beautiful the city is.”
