Jason said: When writing a song do you find it easier to write by yourself or collaborate with others?

Alexz Johnson Said: I like both.... it's nice to collaborate with a producer - often there's so many things to try at your fingertips. It's also very important to be able to sit in a room by yourself and emote what you're feeling into your lyrics.
