Welcome to BuzzMusic, NateThePrince! We loved “One More Time.” It was such a melodic listen! It was almost like we got enveloped in the song! We must ask, can you take us through the creative process you went through making it?
My creative process always starts with how the beat makes me feel, which determines the type of vibe I want to give to those listening. So when I heard the way it started, I knew this would be a song where I wanted you to feel something, and when the beat dropped, it would also be a song that you could also groove to. I also wanted to make it relatable as there are many relationships where it ends, but you still love that person and want it to work out hence why I named the song “One More Time."
You mentioned you were born in Mississauga and raised in Brampton. Both places are super multicultural, right? What was your experience like growing up there, and how did it influence who you are as an artist?
Growing up there, I had a good experience where I spent my childhood. Growing up there influenced me as an artist as many people from the city are talented and show that Toronto isn’t the only place where talented artists come from.
How would you describe your music to new listeners?
I would describe my music to new listeners as catchy as I feel like the melodies I have in my songs can stick with people, relatable as I feel my music can connect with people based on what’s going on in their lives, and all around good vibes as I aim to make songs that can make people feel good.
What are you trying to achieve with your music?
What I’m trying to achieve with my music right now is to do live performances, as that can help bring in more of an audience and introduce people to good music that they may not have heard before.
What’s next for NateThePrince? Can we expect to hear more new music soon?
What’s next for me is to continue to push this song and other songs I’ve released that I feel should get more recognition. So no new music for now, but if I were to give a time stamp on when I want to drop another song, it would be in the Summer.
