Thank you for joining us PROMKNGHT! How would you describe your upbringing? In what ways has it impacted your style and sound?
Thank you for your interest! Well to describe my upbringing.. I've been a creative since my early age.. lets say 13 years old. I've always had this passion in creating art.. whether it was graphic designing, building websites, writing and now making full songs. I took all the knowledge and experience I've had since then and it became natural to me. I am an R&b fan at heart so I soaked up a lot of that 90s R&B sound and infused it with today's style and made it my own.
Who or what would you consider some of your main influences and inspirations as an artist and why?
The Weeknd was and is still is one of my influences .. but my influences change for every project as I progress. Right now, artists like H.E.R, Daniel Caesar, Lucky Daye and a few new souls that's been keeping that true R&B feel alive.
Let’s jump right into your music! “Such A Fool” is a HIT. what’s the theme you were going for? How would you detail the meaning of these lyrics to our readers?
Thank you for that! Well "Such a Fool" was written last year. The whole idea of this song was basically to show it's okay to admit your wrongs and feeling guilty about a good situation you messed up on. If you listen to the lyrics I'm basically trying to make it work and doing anything I can for it to work... Lyrics like "Just to be clear we can try to make this fair, you can get me back for everything I've done on the real" I'm pretty much giving that person the opportunity to play karma and get back at me just for us to leave everything in the pass and move on.
In what ways can you as an artist personally relate to “Such A Fool”?
Well everything I write usually come from a true story.. I relate to everything I create I've been there and witnessed it. I like to share my story to the world because I know everyone go through the same thing. It feels good knowing you're not alone.
What’s next for you PROMKNGHT?
NEW PROJECT! NEW VISUALS! NEW CONCERTS! and much, much more I have cooking up! I am just truly excited for this journey, It's been rough, it's been a lot of ups and downs, but the ups are definitely worth while and I'm just truly blessed and excited to share more of my creativity to the world.
