Arionne, a 23-year-old singer and rapper from St. Louis, Missouri, has been pursuing his music career for just over four years now. He started by rhyming with his high school friends during lunch breaks, but after going through some of his lowest moments in life, he found that music was the only thing he could count on, so from there on out, he gave it he's all, and aren't we glad he did.
He talks about his many inspirations like Micheal Jackson, Kanye West, Drake, Khalid, and Childish Gambino. As he enters into his season of greatness, we want to show you more of his subtle sound, amazing cadences, and he's deep lyrics that will have you daydreaming about your own situations for a while. Arionne isn't just like any other 23 year old with his experience and compatibility in his craft. We are sure he's up next.
His recent single "Ctrl" has everyone in their feelings with its emotional yet relatable lyrics and beautiful visuals to perfectly match the record. This was Arionne's debut music video, and with the help of his amazing team, they managed to get all of the shooting done in Joshua Tree, California. Arionne thanks people like Andrew Olszewski and Good Studios, who took part in the making of the "Ctrl" Music Video.
"Ctrl" brings back so many nostalgic memories as it has an old-school r&b soulful sound with a softer yet dreamy production to round it all off. He takes us on the journey of his own experiences and lessons he's learned along the way; even though he's only getting started, we are excited to see what he has planned for the future.
We are so glad to have you here with us! We love your new single "Ctrl" and the vision behind it. What inspired you, and was there a specific reason behind it?
The track overall was like a bit of a therapy session for me. I wrote it in about two days, the verse was written in my room, and the hook was finished in my car before going to my friend AJs house.
What was the point you wanted to bring across in this record, and what would you like people to take away from it?
The point of the track is basically letting go of the things you have no control over, big or small. The main thing I want people to take away from this is perspective. Not just for me but for everyone around them. Shit may seem perfect, but deep down, we are all struggling. We are all fighting to maintain something.
Can you tell us more about your creative process behind making the "Ctrl" Music Video?
For the video, I took a trip to the Joshua tree desert in California. My director/friend ( Andrew Olszewski ) was the creative genius behind these shots. It took about 6 hrs to get everything. They had me sitting really close to the fire and told me to basically have a one on one with myself while singing the song.
What advice would you give the younger generation that is dealing with similar struggles you've faced in the past?
The advice I have for other people basically just takes your time with stuff and doesn't be afraid to try new things. If you can't get around it, go through it.
What's next for you?
As far as what's next, I plan on dropping my five-song ep "See U Then "in the next month or two. After that, I plan on doing as many shows as possible before getting to work on my first tape/album/project.
