The second song, “1000 Ways” shows a different side, a more confused, hopeless romantic WESLEY that we don’t see in “One Shot.” Telling his experience of loving someone but unfortunately the person he loves doesn’t reciprocate the love back. WESLEY shares with us what the message behind “1000 Ways” is, “While it may seem like another love song at first glance, 1000 Ways for me actually plays with the concept of the one that got away. I was with an amazing girl who I was madly in love with and would do everything and anything for,” WESLEY explains. “But sometimes even when you find you keep giving and giving your love, it in the end just isn’t reciprocated. “I love you 1000 ways and you only know one.” We eventually separated because of it. Love is a two way street. Perhaps one day that person will love you back, or perhaps it’s time to move on.”
Both songs have similar messages, as WELSEY explains why he decided to release both songs on the same day. “Releasing both at the same time was completely planned. I really feel like they go well together while showing two different sides/sounds of me as an artist; One Shot more pulling from today’s modern trap and chill pop vibes, and 1000 Ways pulling from my pop punk roots. They also complement Remedy, my lead single, in contrasting ways accordingly. I’ll probably do this type of dual-release again in the future. Sometimes two is better than one! They also foreshadow the variety of sounds to come on the full length album being released later this year. Cant wait for the rest of the album!!”
