Hello ØHENRY, and welcome to BuzzMusic. Was there an exact moment or story that inspired the writing of this record?
Had a moment with someone one night where everything just felt right, and the next day I wanted to feel it again.
With you honing in on both the production and songwriting, which came first when bringing “Dominoes” to life? What was the creative process like?
The crazy thing is I went to the studio for someone else's session as a writer, and last minute they said they will be 2 hrs late. So I was like, let me make a beat to waste time and ended up making that beat in 20 mins then wrote the song and recorded it right before the Artist arrived.
You have an extensive background in the music industry as you have accomplished many great things! One of which is being featured on Selena Gomez’s latest album ‘Rare’ singing background vocals. What was that experience like for you?
This was a dope experience. Working with some of the biggest in the industry, let me know I could do anything. I was working with super producer Sir Nolan. Got in the studio and it was straight to it. It took about 30 mins to finish cutting the vocals on the song. Then Nolan Had me record Percussion on the record as well, Playing timbales, congas, and other percussion instruments.
In terms of themes and messages, what would you like your listeners to take away from the music that you create?
It's always going to be a positive message from me. Built around Love, relationships, situations, struggles, family, etc.
What has been keeping you inspired throughout 2020?
My Family. We all go through things and well have problems. But what we go through as a family always motivates me. Especially during 2020. You've had to go harder and boss up on many levels to beat this terrible year and not fall into depression. Been inspired by everyone around me who's been working hard. Especially my best friend Journee, She's always on me to post more and get to it.
