Discuss your music career.

I started playing music in 2006 at the age of 16 as a DJ in France to Rabat and Varna to name a few.

 

During this period, I found myself playing with house and hip-hop favorites such as Laurent Wolf, DJ Snake, Big Ali, The Freshmakers and many others.

 

In 2017 I invented Sancii and came out with my first EP entitled ‘Night all day.’

YBC Tha NeRd is an aspiring hip-hop artist who became the talk of town for his unique talent of combining hip-hop with EDM.

 

The YBC stands for “Young Brotha n Charge” – which is his stage name.

 

Born in the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, YBC later moved to the South Suburbs which was where he grew up.

 

YBC Tha NeRd currently resides in North America in Indiana, but he still represents Chicago with all his heart.

 

Although YBC’s music encircles more of a hip-hop approach, he likes to refer to himself as a nerd which is one of the things he loves about himself, and as his stage name suggests. A diehard lover of video games, TV shows, and even comics, YBC has pulled most of his topics and bars from these things.

 

Moreover, the nerd in YBC happens to be an aficionado of science as well, and so, you are likely to hear a little bit of science with a mix of personal experiences, and in some songs, even politics. If that wasn’t enough, YBC Tha NeRd is also a lover of universal vibration and frequency, which he uses to write his lyrics and record his music.

 

For the future, YBC intends to add some history and culture into his music as well.

 

Belonging to the genre of hip-hop and EDM, YBC has a lot of big plans for the near future.

 

He grew up listening to artists such as MC Hammer, Crucial Conflict, The Isley Brothers, Kenny G, Luther Vandross and Sade. These artists helped shape YBC’s love for music and he always had a passion to return the same energy back.

 

His shows are normally highly energetic with crisp sounds and proper performance tracks.

 

YBC’s latest release is titled “Van Gogh” which is his third single.

 

His work has often times been compared to the likes of Flosstradamus and Futuristic, and “like something a major EDM DJ would make”, and YBC himself prefers to compare his work to Mickey Factz and Lupe.

 

Currently, YBC is focusing his time on recording his EP for a summer release, as well as a winter album release, all the while taking the opportunity to book shows any and everywhere.

.

.

.

Tell us how you build up the tune for this song.

This was a collaboration with an EDM duo named Electro Riot. I needed something with the right energy to match what I was saying.

.

.

.

Tell us the best means of becoming a famous artist and selling more records.

Well I’m not there yet, but I’ll definitely let you know once I get there.

.

.

.

Tell us how fans are reacting to your music.

This is my biggest song to date – with over 100k spins on Spotify.

 

I get great feedback on this song all the time. People like I how I mixed EDM with hip hop.

.

.

.

Explain how to deal with fear on stage.

You have to set that aside and perform as if you were in the booth. Remember the feeling you want to get across and act on that.

.

.

.

Tell us your point of view on the quality of production of today’s songs to old songs and point out what you think has changed.

The production quality is still great. But I think a lot of new music lacks live instruments.

 

Old school tracks had real drums, bass guitar, and horns.

 

I think live instruments would only help make a song better.

.

.

.

Tell us how you come across the lyrics of this song.

We’ll as u can tell by my name I’m a nerd. So I draw inspiration from anime, TV shows, comics, video games and movies. I take all that and turn that into the fuel and punchlines or metaphors that I use.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on using music to deliberate on issues affecting people like corruption, immoralities, politics and religion.

Music will always be the best way to get these pints across. All throughout time music has given a voice to the under-privileged and forgotten.

.

.

.

Discuss how you plan to create a timeless music that your fans can cherish forever.

By just being myself, staying true to what I know and what my fans like.

.

.

.

List the names of individuals you can point out as legends and state your reasons.

Lupe Fiasco, Daylyt, Mickey Factz – just based on the bars. All of them have amazing wordplay and depth.

 

Kanye west – because of his musicality and the way he produces.

.

.

.

Tell us your viewpoint on discriminating.

Discriminating against anyone or anything is bad. But with this internet generation everyone gets to voice their opinion to the public and it allows for this to be misconstrued and misrepresented.

.

.

.

Tell us your favourite books and state your reason.

The 48 Laws of Power: very in-depth book about people and personalities – how people interact with each other, and how one should interact with a certain type of person.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what triggers your creativity.

A ton of different things – sometimes it’s certain beat.

 

Sometimes I’m watching TV and see a special move from a character and I start spinning that in to bars.

 

Or a video game makes me think how I can flip this into a song.

.

.

.

Tell us how you generate musical ideas for your composition.

I base that on things going on in my personal life or in the world or what I think would be dope to talk about.

 

I try to keep my options open to all new ideas because something may hit you while you are shopping.

.

.

.

Tell us your greatest song and state the reason.

My greatest song is not available and may not even be written yet. I’m getting better every time I write and create. So stay tuned.

.

.

.

Tell us how you compose your song.

Sometimes the lyrics are first sometimes the beat is first. Just depends on if I’m writing alone or if a producer has sent me a beat ahead of time.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the song.

The song is about getting up and putting in the work to be where you want to be. The work may not be what you want to do at the time but it needs to be done in order to get to where you want to actually be.

 

Sometimes people get too complacent with where they are and they forgot about the dreams that they had of where they want to be. So you have to get up off your ass and get it done.

 

And if you see your friends, family or partners around you not putting in the work that they need to do then you tell them to get up and get it done.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

My name is YBC Tha NeRd. YBC stands for Young Brotha n Charge.

Clem Lo was born and raised in the south of Paris.

 

He got his first musical influences from there.

 

In his teenage hood, independent French bands like 1995 or L’entourage became huge in France and inspired him to start rapping at the age of 13.

 

Coming from a musical family, Clem worked in the studio with his father, his biggest mentor and influence at the age of 5.

 

His first instrument was drums but he eventually played keys with his grandmother at 6.

 

When he met the artist Areno Jazz in 2012, Clem decided that he wanted to make a career in rap.

 

At the age of 19, Clem received a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music and this experience changed his life.

 

Independent, but not alone, Clem has collaborated with more than ten artists in the last three years in the USA, including Mosie, GiantQueen, Lilacs, Goldspace and Lick Neon.

 

His newest EP FRE(n)ch is an important one as it is mostly in French and pushes both the linguistic and musical boundaries of today’s Hip-Hop.

 

The EP is a reflection on the millennials and their desperate need to exist through social media, and the issues and violence…

.

.

.

Tell us how you build up the tune for this song.

I got back from work and I had been listening to Asap Rocky…

 

I had his sororities on my mind and I sat down to make a beat. I started hearing this line: “French rap… fresh trap” and thought there weren’t any French rappers that openly represent French trap, as its own thing. So I decided to make a whole flex song about French rap.

.

.

.

Tell us the best means of becoming a famous artist and selling more records.

The one and only requirement to me is an unconditional love and passion for music.

 

If you wake up every morning and the first thing you think of is making music… you should probably think about a career in music.

 

No matter how much money you make from music – you have to dedicate as much of your time as possible.

 

Then there is networking… You have to like people, meet people, and share your love for music with them. And stuff will happen that you never thought was possible.

.

.

.

Tell us how fans are reacting to your music.

So far people have been very enthusiast and they want more French rap!

.

.

.

Explain how to deal with fear on stage.

To be confident on stage you have to be hella prepared. If you rehearse to the point you have no doubts about your ability to do your set front to bottom, then your amount of stress will be reduced.

 

People with stage fright, the only advice I have is to force yourself to perform as much as you can until this irrational fear leaves your body.

.

.

.

Tell us your point of view on the quality of production of today’s songs to old songs and point out what you think has changed.

I think people in the industry tend to appreciate a clean sound nowadays. – Meaning, flawless production and mix, with very digital sounding songs but also few elements in the song.

 

Back in the days it was more about big orchestration and longer songs (Quincy Jones type production). Also music used to have more dynamics than today and the early 21st century.

 

But music consumers still like the raw music out there. That’s why some artists still provide a very DIY, raw production (Mac DeMarco or Kiefer for example).

.

.

.

Tell us any interesting experience in your music career that is significant.

Moving to the United States is definitely a highlight of my career. I have changed my way of doing music and I have experienced a lot more since I am here.

 

I played with a lot of bands, including Lick Neon, Lo Artiz, and GiantQueen and I have been playing my music in a lot of different cities.

 

My favorite experience was to go to Detroit. We went to jam one night at this jazz bar called Bert’s market place. My homie Wada went to play sax and he killed it so they asked us to come the next week to play a gig. It was the best Jazz show I played on drums in my life. The people of Detroit are very welcoming and I loved having that opportunity.

.

.

.

Tell us how you come across the lyrics of this song.

My writing process is hard to describe but the way I started getting to the lyrics of this song was by just mumbling and scatting some melodic and rhythmic ideas. Then it was just a matter of time and reflection for the words to stick to the rhythms.

.

.

.

Tell us your best means of expressing yourself.

Rap, Poetry, Drums, Bass, Keys…. Music is the best way of expressing myself.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on using music to deliberate on issues affecting people like corruption, immoralities, politics and religion.

I think music can change people’s way of living and thinking. The stories you can tell through music can touch anyone. It’s very powerful as it is relatable.

 

Music is a healer, but also a catalyst for change. Music is informative, but it can also be used for wrong purposes. Many times in history people used music as a tool for propaganda and spreading dangerous ideologies.

 

In the end, I think of music as a great platform to debate and say what you think, what you truly want to express. By speaking your truth you can touch people in a very special and powerful way.

.

.

.

Discuss how you plan to create a timeless music that your fans can cherish forever.

By speaking TO them and FOR them with what I consider to be the undiluted truth.

 

I speak to my audience to challenge their thinking. I want people to listen to my music in 50 years and get something out of it.

 

I grow with my music and I think other people can grow with me.

.

.

.

List the names of individuals you can point out as legends and state your reasons.

Muhammad Ali: A huge inspiration to me. His fearlessness, hustle, and fights are constantly reminding me of how I have to run towards my goals, and be a good person.

 

J Dilla: The G.O.A.T.

 

Miles Davis: The one and only. Miles’ music transported me in twenty different dimensions.

 

His music will never die and the people that he touched with his sound will never be the same.

 

I have not been the same since I heard him play. His unwillingness to be behind his time and constant effort to make some new sounding music is a huge part of what made me who I am.

.

.

.

Tell us your viewpoint on discriminating.

It’s ignorance. People who discriminate are ignorant.

 

Education at home and in school changes the way a human being behaves towards another.

 

If we teach our kids to love one another and see a brother and a sister in anyone, it will be the most important thing they’ll learn.

 

The education system is lacking an actual understanding of history and the truth is hard to find in a lot of school books.

 

A lot of media spread fake news and kids spend more time on their phone absorbing BS than they spend time trying to see the world with their own eyes.

 

It’s dangerous because this is how people become secluded and stuck in extreme beliefs.

 

The evidence is in front of our eyes with the current administration here, in the US, in Brazil and in European countries voting for far right leaders.

.

.

.

Tell us your favourite books and state your reason.

Les Fleurs du mal by Charles Baudelaire

The deepest and richest poetry book I have read. It is very personal too; you can follow the poet’s state of mind throughout years. His prose is amazing.

 

La Republique by Plato

The best philosophy book I have read. It opened doors to understanding the art of rhetoric and other important concepts.

.

.

.

Tell us what triggers your creativity.

Life and anything that surrounds me – I can be on vacation and record a sound I like, then go home and make music with it.

 

I can read a book and get inspired to write a song.

 

Everything is art to me so I am always making stuff.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you generate musical ideas for your composition.

I make a drum loop, to set the tempo I am feeling, and then I start messing around with my keys, or my bass, sometimes, but less often, I will start a song with my guitar. (I suck at guitar that’s why it’s less common).

.

.

.

Tell us your greatest song and state the reason.

I don’t have one but I will say ‘So What’ by Miles Davis on the Kind of Blue album. It’s almost unbeatable… The recording has this magic that never leaves. No matter how many times I listen to it.

.

.

.

Tell us how you compose your song.

Ableton is my favorite software to make music with.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the song.

French Rap is a big up to… French Rap. It’s talking about how far we can take French Rap, and how ambitious I am to bring the music to the top of the charts one day.

 

I wanted to feature at least one French song that I could put in the club in any country and that everyone would be able to sing the hook and go totally nuts on it.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

Clem Lo is a short and easy for people to read and say my name right. My real name is Clement Leau. Leau means water in French but Clem Water sounded wack so I used the same sonority than Leau in French which sounds like “Lo”. Everyone calls me Clem and not Clement so Clem Lo was an obvious choice for me.

 

The EP is called French because it’s my first integral EP in French. Usually I rap in both English and French.

Discuss your existence.

Based in Perth, Western Australia and I am a father of three children. Coming from a computer science background, I love everything about music technology: software, hardware, electronics, audio engineering, control voltages and even engineering theory.

.

.

.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason.

Electronic – I love synthesizers, drum machines and samplers.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your experience as a musician.

I started playing the piano as a young boy and have always loved the keys.

 

I first played a Yamaha DX7 in the 1980s and my love for synthesizers started.

 

I purchased my first synthesizer in the mid-1990s – a Roland XP workstation, and slowly accumulated my studio hardware gear list of today.

 

Today I produce, perform and release commercial albums. I also run a YouTube channel.

.

.

.

Tell us the theme of your work.

My music invites feelings of relaxation, escapism and dreamscapes.

 

I believe that music is meant to be felt, it should give you a fizzy feeling: traveling up your spine and tingling your cheeks.

.

.

.

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.

I’m a solo operator at this stage. My thanks go to my family for their support.

.

.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

I love to create atmospheres where people can chill out and have space to think. We all have such busy lives these days, it is really important to relax our minds so we can enable those dreams to come through.

.

.

.

Analyze the transformations you have discovered so far in the music industry.

There’s such a diverse platform where we can all discover music these days. Online, in games, in films even on YouTube. As a result we are exposed to many emerging genres and ideas. The experience is truly amazing.

.

.

.

 

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

Jean-Michel Jarre is probably the artist that started my love for synthesizers and electronic music.

 

New Order gave me such a different perspective to music creation away from the popular mainstream.

 

Kraftwerk allowed me to be different and quirky – exploring sounds and ideas without question.

 

Vangelis showed me how to create dreamscapes and flourish feeling.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody.

The melody isn’t the beginning of my creative process. I develop from a sound design idea, based on unique synthesis or sample mangling. It then transforms into a melody and a beat.

.

.

.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists.

I’m currently looking at working with some vocalists. It has been an amazing experience so far.

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the music with a genuine message that inspires them.

Dancing is so important for us to move and feel free with the music guiding us. I love music that tells a story, paints a feeling or designs an ideology. These songs become keepsakes to people, who cherish them for memories of time and place.

.

.

.

 

Explain how you put instruments together.

I work with many hardware instruments in the studio. A lot of my work is by trial and error – combining gear with other gear that isn’t the usual marriage. I like to use synthesis and sampling to mangle my ideas further.

.

.

.

Discuss the use of instrumentation as background music.

My biggest love is background music – I’m the background guy! No seriously, I’m in my element doing just instrumentation!

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your instrumentation.

I work with layering concepts. It has to fit with each other creating a stereoscape of spacial audio candy. The sounds merge and interact with each other to create a feeling, an emotion and a beat.

.

.

.

 

Go into detail on the recording of this song.

I recorded ‘Forever’ in my studio here in Perth – called “The Geekery”. This is my place of creative process. It began as a jam session and recorded as I go. I then laid out the ideas in a DAW and mix / master from there. I have a fairly extensive amount of outboard and recording gear – I really like the sounds of certain mixers and pre-amps. It all adds to the overall feel.

.

.

.

Discuss your sound.

I remember that I’d just purchased a new Moog synthesizer – and fell in love with it immediately.

 

The sound is grounded around some strong tones generated from the Moog. It has a purposeful, larger than life “analog” electronic sound.

.

.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

Ranzee – derived from my name Ranz – not much more than that!

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

‘Forever’ is about wishing things to last on and never end. The song is about love, a relationship with anything: a person, a thing, an idea. It represents our emphatic side to hold onto things and let them play out.

Hey, why don’t we do a concert with your songs? It was something like that Carlos Linhares said to his son Luã, in the middle of 2012, in the city of Belo Horizonte – Brazil.

 

It seemed like a good idea to the young songwriter, who then rescued those songs that were waiting for years to come out to the world.

 

The dream of the SUSPENSE Band was born, which today already aims the international public.

 

Since that first show, many new songs were created, mixing the audacity of Progressive Rock with the energy of Pop music, with a delicious jazzistic spice.

 

SUSPENSE has original songs with lyrics in English, full of synthesizer riffs, guitar solos and remarkable melodies.

 

In 2016 the band released the music of the song “Stranger Things”, inspired by the Netflix series.

 

In 2018, they released their first album, “Suspense”, that is available in all main digital streaming platforms.

 

In 2019, the band released the music video of the song “Beautiful Excuses.”

 

The unique sound of SUSPENSE Band comes from the compositions of the singer, keyboardist and music producer Luã Linhares.

 

The other members of the band, Luciano Soares (guitar and backing vocals), Carlos Linhares (bass) and Nelson Simões (drums) were members of the progressive rock band Arion that released an album in 2001 by the French label Musea, and opened international concerts, including the legendary Dutch band Focus.

 

Each song of the SUSPENSE Band is composed to be a unique work of art, original and complete. You could wonder how would be those songs based on these clues, but only by actually listening that the true spirit of the songs is revealed.

.

Interview with Luã Linhares

(Singer, keyboardist and composer of SUSPENSE Band)

 

Discuss your singing ability.

I played keyboards since I was a kid, but in my teen years I started to want to sing.

 

 

At the beginning I was very bad in singing, and I received many bad feedback. “Keep just playing the keyboards” they said.

 

Well, I had this dream, so I didn’t stop, so I started taking classes on singing, and started a routine of doing vocal exercises every day.

 

Among the years, I think I got much better. Now, although I’m not where I want to be yet, I already receive a lot of compliments about my singing.

.

.

 

Tell us the reason you want to sing.

I am very shy, and I think with music I can make myself noticed and heard. It’s my way of expressing myself in the best way I can.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your most memorable live performance.

It’s always good to play to a lot of people, but the best moments are when people are close to you in a show and in the same vibe.

 

One of the most memorable live performances I remember was when we played in the university, a free event. The vibe was awesome, people were dancing and the stage was very close to the public… we were all in the same space, sharing happiness together.

.

.

.

Discuss how you build your song.

There’s no pattern on how I begin. Ideas come from everywhere. Sometimes I listen to a new band and get inspired by that, sometimes I’m improvising at the instrument and the ideas come, and sometimes I’m walking in the street and I start to sing something, then I grab my phone and record it.

 

Then I start to build the arrangements idea, still with a “non-existent” kind of English language, while I still haven’t written the lyrics. Then I bring the idea to the band and we build the rest of the arrangement. Usually the lyrics are the last thing I finish.

.

Tell us how you impress your fans with your music.

People here in Brazil sometimes get surprised “Are these songs really yours? So these songs aren’t covers?”

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of promotion to music business.

Today more than ever the band itself must do, at least in the beginning, all the tasks regarding other aspects of the career beyond the music itself. And we can’t just release a song and wait for the people to discover it. We must go there and find the people in the niches where they will like our music.

 

So there are some platforms that we are discovering that helps a lot in making it possible to reach potential fans. I hope we can make it right in this way.

.

.

.

Tell us what you will do apart from music.

Music is in everything! Apart from the bands I work as music producer recording other artists and bands.

.

.

.

List the names of the instruments you can play.

In the band I sing, play keyboards and acoustic guitar. But I know the basics of electric guitar, bass and drums also.

.

.

.

Tell us if you have any music background.

I started making music since I was 9 years old. My father is a musician, so I was raised in a house full of instruments, musical inspirations and musical friends. Now I and my father are in the same band. He is the bassist of SUSPENSE Band.

.

.

.

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist.

Don’t give up! You will hear a lot of “no’s” along the way. The success is not built on glamour, it is hard, constant work and discipline.

 

Study the bands you like, what makes their arrangements good. And try to think as a producer, look at your own band from an “outside” perspective, and make all the changes you think you need to reach your full potential. Life is short, so RUN for your dreams!

.

.

.

Elaborate on melody and rhythm.

In the first years of the band, I realized my songs were very based on melody, but they were kind of ‘contemplative’, people who were watching weren’t moving their bodies.

 

So, at some point, I started worrying more about the rhythm, the groove too. So you can see that the songs in our album ‘Suspense’ that we released recently already have a lot of rhythm energy.

 

The song “Don’t Give Me Your Dreams” for instance, was composed and based on the dance movement, inspired by the Funk / Soul music.

.

.

.

Tell us your future goals.

We want to keep growing and reaching people, connecting with fans, and travel a lot around the world doing tours. At the moment we are promoting our new album and trying to make it known here in Brazil and also in other countries.

.

.

.

Share your music experience with us.

Music has always been present in my life. It’s the main way I make friends and learn life lessons until today.

 

It’s a universal language. If you stop to think, music doesn’t make sense rationally, but it moves our bodies and minds, and connects people in a way we can’t understand, but we can feel the power and emotion.

 

I want to feel that, live that, and use music to reach my dreams and know a lot of people and places.

.

.

.

Tell us the most difficult part of recording.

The hardest part in recording the album was being the music producer of my own band.

 

When I am my own ‘client’, the work never stops, because I always want to try new things and I’m never satisfied.

 

So there was a point that we had to set a deadline to finally abandon the project and let it born!

.

.

.

Discuss the greatest mistake you have ever made in your music career.

Not keeping the routine of studies and exercises since the beginning.

 

I could be way further today if I had this discipline to make a good quality study a habit.

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of relatability of the lyrics to the listeners.

Song lyrics is a very strong way of keeping a message in the mind of the person forever.

 

So it’s very important to write a good message for the song.

 

I try to write things with meaning. Sometimes it’s a critic, sometimes it is a positive motivation, sometimes it is just expression of feelings, but it is never something I don’t want to say.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the song.

‘Beautiful Excuses’ is the first song of our album “Suspense”.

 

It expresses well our idea of making “Progressive Pop / Rock”.

 

It has elements of Pop music, with that EDM dancing beat, but it travels to many places and climates.

 

It goes from that indie vibe to a heavy rock vibe, and in the middle there’s a keyboard solo showing our prog influences.

 

I think if you enjoy this mixes of styles and genres, you probably will like “Beautiful Excuses” and the whole album.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

SUSPENSE, which is the name of the band and also the album, comes from being fans of suspense movies, thrillers and mystery.

 

It relates with the mysteries of life, the tension of the daily situations and also the shadows of our fantastic imagination.

 

One of the songs in the album, “Stranger Things” was based on the Netflix series, so it’s a reference of all this world of suspense…

.

 

State your reason for choosing music as a career.

It’s my passion. The time I feel most alive is when I’m creating and performing music

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

I usually have the melody and lyrics hit me randomly and have to stop and write it down or record using my phone and then continue to work on it.

 

If I have the instrumental before the song is written, I instantly feel the emotion and mood of the song and start writing off of the emotion the music is giving me

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

I’m back and more serious than ever. Creating Afro / Latino and R&B sounds.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

I was born with it. I am a Nigerian and my name is Igbo and it means “God has won.”

.

.

.

List your favourite music videos with reasons.

‘Womanizer’ and ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’ by Britney Spears. I also like ‘Rhythm Nation’ by Janet Jackson. I’m a sucker for a good dance number.

.

.

.

Tell us your source of inspiration.

Life, love and music with a message – I like to make people think, especially about consequences.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your experience on dealing with fans.

I’ve had the best experience with fans. Especially overseas! They are so sweet, supportive and excited for any new release – It’s been such an amazing feeling.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

We decided to team up since we have been friends for so long.

 

I found a Nigerian producer and he had one track out of all his Afrobeat tracks that had this Afro / Latino sound. I had to have it. I reached out to Cuban Diva and the rest was history!

.

.

.

 

Tell us your future projects.

“Dinero” will be the next single. It’s more urban sounding with Latin influence.

.

.

.

List the names of those that have supported you so far.

Lindsey & Brent DeKay

 

My mom, dad and siblings

And most of Nigeria!

.

.

.

Tell us your point of view on vocal tuning.

I don’t mind it too much as long as the performer can actually sing live.

.

.

.

Tell us your thought on quality and quantity for the release of songs.

I was someone who was more of a fan of quality so it would take me a long time to release music. But now I’m kind of leaning towards quantity.

 

Releasing as much as possible more frequently without reducing the quality too much – Not every song has to have $1500 production. And I won’t even get into the video fees.

.

.

.

Tell us your viewpoint on comparing music career to non-music career.

There is no comparison for me; I have to be successful in both in order to make the other thrive. So I love and do both.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on categorizing music into genres and sub-genres.

I think it’s difficult because not every sound is the same, and every sound can’t be categorized.

 

Some songs are a blend of two sounds and yet we have to find a genre to make the music stores happy.

.

.

.

 

State the genre you despise most with reason.

None – I love all music and I even write songs for all kinds of music genres even country.

.

.

.

List your favourite movies with reasons.

A Bronx Tale – sweet film on young love

 

Friday – classic

 

Half Baked – because of Dave Chappelle!

 

Romy and Michelle‘s High School Reunion – super girly and fun

 

The Sound of Music – another classic

 

Glitter – I have an obsession with Mariah Carey.

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

‘Hater’s Anthem’ is about ignoring the negativity and being too busy to put other people down.

 

A true boss is making moves and uplifting others. A reminder that success is the best revenge

.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

Upcoming album is “On My Own” and it’s because I’m really doing it alone this time; no production deal, no management, no record label – it’s all me.
