Welcome to BuzzMusic, OTB Luccii, and congratulations on the release of "When I See U." What story or moment prompted the creation of such a personal song?
I created when I see you based on heartbreaks and pain that I have been through in certain relationships; it's a message to give out to the females and the ones who went through a breakup in any kind of way that left them hurt or damaged with being in love.
Being a versatile artist, what other types of sounds do you have? Do you ever restrict yourself to certain genres or styles?
I can do a little bit of r&b depending on the production quality at the studio. When I say that, I mean like autotune. I'm more versatile in rap and hip hop, which means I could do the drill, pain, soul, and club bangers.
Could you please share a glimpse into the creative process when bringing this song to life?
It's gone open up the ears and bring more light to the females. The first point of view is to get the ladies to like your music; once you accomplish that, you go viral after.
What advice do you have for your audience going through a similar hurt as you?
Never give up your dreams. Getting hurt in any type of way in life only makes you stronger and is a lesson learned for anything in life.
What's next for you?
My new single is called "TWIN" it's a club banger. I'm looking forward to making this my biggest project and going viral with it.
