Congratulations on the release of your single, “Hey Mista Meme.” How did this collaboration come to be?
Beyond grateful to be here! Yung Meme and I are artists who admire each other stylistically and so we decided to take it a step further. We honestly didn’t know if a collaboration between us would sound right in the beginning! We’re very different artists in a musical sense and so we went into the process knowing that the track would be a hit or miss. I basically just sashayed on the track with my verse and then I sent it back to Meme who got it done and booming in record time and we had a finished song within the span of a few hours.
What’s the overall thesis of this track? What are you hoping your listeners take away from this?
Strangely enough, this is one of the only songs to my name that doesn’t have some deep, metaphorical meaning to it! Meme is more of a lighthearted creator who has a talent for creating music with really fun energy and so I tried to channel the same airy nature when writing my verse. Essentially, we’re both just hyping each other up throughout the song and hopefully, it gets our listeners in the same gassed up, feeling yourself, type of mindset.
Could you please take us into the creative process that was endured for “Hey Mista Meme?"
When working with rappers, I normally take on a DooWop Girl-like persona where I introduce them or tell their tale in my funky, melodic way. Then the rapper usually just uses that for leverage to blow themself up further and it works out fine. Yung Meme, however, threw me my same energy back in a different package if you will, and it created a very unique and dope dynamic between us! It was definitely the type of combo that you can’t create with just anyone!
Can we expect more collaborations from you two in the future? What was it like working with one another?
Hell yeah! Meme actually has our track set on a really bitchin ', and carefully curated album that he’s releasing in late April- which everyone should totally check out by the way aha! But yeah, we definitely will find more sounds to blend and push our genre boundaries even further in the future! Working together was actually much easier than one would think. As an artist who primarily relies on singing vocals and original bass lines, it’s always interesting to work with rappers who focus more on straight recitative. Yung Meme just has this impressive way of freestyling his way into any verse and it makes for a sonic quick and refreshing kinda flow! We easily pushed each other a little out of our comfort zones to blend in the boldest fashion! And at the end of the day, that’s what creating art is all about!
