Welcome to BuzzMusic, Rey. We love the smooth and sensual atmosphere of your latest single, "Time Flies." What inspired you to create such a soft and sensual song?
Thank you. I appreciate the feedback, thanks for listening. It’s kind of weird but I’m in a rhythm right now. There are so many things going my way is like all I have to do is go with the flow. It’s funny you described it as a soft and sensual song because it can certainly give you that slow jam vibe.
What was your songwriting process like for "Time Flies"? Was it easy for you to write your passionate and sincere words?
The process for "Time Flies" was all inspiration. The holiday season is a time when you either rise to the occasion or shy away from all the frenzy, the commercials, the gifts, events, bundles, and stuff. I was fortunate enough to be raised in a family that is also jolly and effervescent (if you will) during this time of year so the mixture of that and a great playlist did the trick.
Did you create the production for "Time Flies" entirely by yourself?
Absolutely not. Alvin Ryze is in Canada. I met him through a friend who also works with many producers that compose romantic songs. I’m sure there are many R&B singers who’ve worked with him. He’s great playing the keyboards and I believe he also records his own guitar samples. Which is super cool. Anyway, he made the musical elements, and I wrote the lyrics, arranged them, and engineered the master.
How did you create the production and sonics to emphasize the song's passionate theme?
The production and sonics to emphasize the song’s theme all come from experience, inspiration, and a little ingenuity. I think as creators we carry a sixth sense to these things and I’ve been fortunate to work with some good producers. I know a very well-done production when I hear one. The rest is having the talent to engineer the vocals (you’ll hear a drop at about a minute left to the song with some drums, that was me, I did that—lol.
What did you want to make the listener feel when experiencing "Time Flies"?
I wanted the listener to easily capture the moment. You gotta understand and I tell everybody that I speak to about this, right now, I’m on a highway where the vehicle is on autopilot and the words are like the mileage. It’s really a beautiful process to sit and just press record. So to answer your question, I want the listener to be on that same highway with me. Hopefully, that metaphor best explains "Time Flies," and a lot of my work being released as of late.
What is your goal with your music in 2022?
My goal with my music in 2022 is to leave it all out there. I hope that by 2023, (wow 2023 that sounds pretty cool)—my goal for 2022 is that I’m no longer releasing music for followers but to tap on the numbers aspect. Whether it is how many streams/comments per record, raising the level of engagement on social media Interacting with fans, or dropping merch. Is a long shot but we’ll see.
