Thank you for catching up with us at BuzzMusic, Edison. We admire the uplifting feel and desirous tones of your recent single, "Whatever." When did you begin executing ideas for this single, and how did the song's inspiration come about?
I began executing ideas about a month before the song came out. I was listening to the production and I was trying to create an idea as far as my approach to who I am and my thought process as far as how I talk to women. The inspiration mainly came from a place that resembled my approach to a romantic evening even if it’s just for one night.
What did you want your audience to feel and experience after listening to the overall single, "Whatever?" What sort of vibe were you looking to achieve?
I wanted them to feel this natural case of being relaxed and having a great time. You don’t have to be clever all the time which is why I’m all about taking a girl out and asking what she is down to do because I’m down for whatever. People will dance to this song which is also a vibe that I was looking forward to achieving.
Did you work with any producers when creating "Whatever," or did you produce this single yourself? What was the song's behind-the-scenes process like?
Yes, my manager UneekInt produced the track. When he showed me the beat, I had an original idea for it but none of it was catchy or creative. It probably took me a day or two for me to think about it a little bit more because I felt like I was trying to be too creative, so I needed that time to gather my thoughts and once I did the song came to fruition. It took a few days to completely record the song right and after going over it, the green light was given, and eventually, we were able to release the song a few weeks later.
Regarding your professional relationship with UneekInt, how has he helped your career expand and flourish? Do you two often collaborate?
He is definitely a great manager to have. He and I talk almost every day about what the next plan should be or he’ll give me a call and give me updates on what’s going on and so forth. He is my eyes and ears when it comes to this business since I don’t have the insights into what is going on. He is the one that got me more serious about being on articles and has gotten me the connections that I need to go forward. It is always great to have a manager that can manage, produce, and song write himself. Artists need a manager that can do everything. We collaborate all the time, I have more music on the way that he also produced. Working with him has truly been a blessing.
