You are all set to unleash your own brand of music into the world this July with the release of the highly-anticipated EP, “They Don’t Even Know”. Tell us more about it.
Man, I am so excited and nervous at the same damn time.
“They Don’t Even Know” is the 1st Single to be released from my five (5) Song EP.
It’s an Urban Pop record. I am a singer but this record leans more toward the hip-hop genre.
It’s about excelling no matter what naysayers (aka haters or non-supporters) have to say about it. Personally for me, the naysayers were low-key competitors disguised as friends, lovers, and even so-called managers, who claimed to have my back, but their actions proved to be contradicting, as they discouraged me, used my talents to help their own cause or needs, then attempted to write me off when I decide to get focused and really push my music career, at which point they downplayed my abilities to my face and to others in an attempt to disillusion and create road blocks. But THEM DON’T KNOW, God brought all of their trickery to the light, and the record represents the sentiment that I will supersede my oppressors and God will prepare a table for me and those same people will watch me eat despite their negative intent.
The sad part is that I am a lover and would love for us too all be at that table together. Eating. Smiling. And saying WE DID IT TOGETHER. And regarding those short-sighted people, I say “THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW” that’s my inner drive, my work ethic, and my Passion will continue to manifest great things.
“They Don’t Even Know” sums up the concept of the EP. It is the beginning of my revelation that the people I had around me, meant me no good and the evolution that took place within me to get back in touch with myself, to not be afraid to lose those people, and to be ok with the concept that I must let go and let God, and be ok if people walk out of my life who were holding me back and manipulating me in the first place, which births the “WALK” record, and from there just replenishing my soul with positive energy and waking up my senses to dream again and aspire to be great, if only for a day, which births my “BILLIONAIRE” record, and then there is the necessary release after being restricted for so long where you just want to let down your hair, and just dance like no one is watching, and be irresponsible for a day, which births my “FREAKS” record, and after all of that much needed diffusion, reel it back in to pay homage to beautiful hardworking women with my “BASS DROP” record, and remind them that they house and own the power, and for them not to just give it away so easily.
My debut EP, introduces A new sound to the Universe. My own sound. Imagine if Nicki Minaj & Rihanna had a Baby, what it would sound like? That’s what I am presenting to the world at the end of July 2017, so like I said, I am both excited and nervous. It’s my own thing.
It’s URBAN POP, and It’s mainstream music with a hint of island vibes. So all those who are feeling this interview and feeling my vibes, please pre-order my “THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW” EP today, and receive an instant copy of my 1st single “They Don’t Even Know”.
Additionally, 10% of the sales will go to Breast Cancer Research in an effort to support finding the cure for breast cancer (motivated by my dear friend Coki Tai who unfortunately, did not win the fight).
Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding musicians, who all are your fans and shall like to know from you for their climb to the ladder of success in this field?
Create your own lane, meaning do not duplicate what’s already on the radio or playing in clubs. Be inspired by what you hear on the radio or in clubs, but go with and cultivate your OWN sound using your innate instincts. I also advise all Artist to make time to learn to produce and record yourselves, so no one can prevent you from being creative or stump the growth of your potential. Also, as annoying as it may sound, let everyone know you’re an Artist, and be ready to Perform at any given time, because you never know who will be in your company that can take you to the next level. Lastly, invest in yourself (from your image, to booking a studio, to putting yourself on tour). Be and Stay inspired. There are over 7 Billion people in the world. All you have to do is write a song that less than 1% can relate too. Blessings and Respect!
