So what's next for Martinez? This creative artist revealed her second album will feature an accompanying movie. 

“It’s all of the videos together of the next record, all thirteen, with dialogue and whatnot in between connecting all of them together. and I’m directing it and writing it and styling it and doing the makeup," said Martinez.
