Tuff Questions is our series where we ask artists a selection of incredibly difficult questions.

Next up in the Tuff Questions hot seat is German/Croatian producer Topic.

Topic propelled himself into the global spotlight with his 2019 hit single ‘Breaking Me’ with frequent collaborator, A7S. Fueled by viral success on TikTok, "Breaking Me" cracked the Top 5 on both the UK Singles Chart and Billboard Hot 100.

Topic has reunited with A7S for latest single, "Why Do You Lie To Me", which also features Grammy-nominated US rapper, Lil Baby. He's just revealed the twocolours Remix of "Why Do You Lie To Me", but how will he do with the Tuff Questions?
