Rob McCoy is a musically talented young R&B artist who hails from the state of New Jersey. He released his single “Start with Sorry”. The song starts off with an incredible note riff which immediately catches your focus! It’s an acoustic pop single that showcases his incredible range and ability to reach his high notes! Rob has a classic mixed with a current sound to his vocals. He can match up with extremely talented R&B/POP Kings nowadays including Chris Brown and Usher. If he wanted to, Rob McCoy can even crossover to Hip-Hop to show more variety as an artist.
What I appreciate a lot about this song is there’s a room for this single in the current overcrowded and generic music playing on radios nowadays. There has been a recent trendsetting change that has transcended over the past few years in the music scene that shifted the variety of songs that's constantly played on the radios, parties, clubs etc. This song reminds me of those many great jams that had a timeless feel to it that when you hear it 5 years from now you will still be infatuated the same way you were infatuated with the single 5 years prior. This song is a relatable love song that most people going through a heartbreak can vibe too! I’m pretty sure we’ve all hurt someone we never intended to hurt, this song touches base on that “seeking forgiveness” emotion that sometimes we don’t know how to bring out of us!
There’s no doubt in our minds that the ladies can feel his music and he can attract a larger fan base than the one he already has. Not only is Rob McCoy a talented singer, he’s a well-rounded musician equipped with songwriting skills along with dexterous virtuosity on the drums and piano. If you think he’s un-relatable then you can have that thought again because Rob McCoy has also faced triumphs and discouragement from others around him. He uses his relatable persona as ammo for his music to have more substance. However, he knew his passion would diminish any negativity that surrounded him. As he said “Only the strong survive and I am far from weak. Cliche yes, but nothing or no one can stop me from achieving my destiny.”
Rob Mccoy has opened up for his brother Fetty Wap and many other artists like Day 26 and Ryan Leslie. There’s no doubt in our mind that this promising artist will have a successful journey. Especially if he continues the path of trendy music with passionate lyricism!

Hi Rob! Great to chat with you! Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Rob McCoy I am a singer, songwriter, audio engineer and musician from NJ. I began my music career about 8 years ago and have been on and off with it every since.
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
well, it all began about 8 years ago after a very heartfelt conversation I had with my family about our living situation. I knew that we were all talented but no one ever acted on it so instead of asking why I did. After multiple ups and downs, my younger brother Willie AKA Fetty Wap ended up having a hit single that changed our lives. I had the opportunity to write and engineer on a few projects he was featured on that helped me get to where I am today. These days I'm just doing it for the love of music and the few fans I have gained throughout the years.
How did you come up with your name? Is there a meaning behind it?
Robert is my first name that's where Rob came from McCoy is middle name my first producer and audio engineer Shy Boogs actually came up with my stage name
Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
Yes, every released record I have was written by me. My first few songs I had some assistance with because of course I was terrible when I first started but from the 3rd song on, I did all the writing all the vocal production as well as engineering mixing and mastering on my projects. Honestly, I'm not sure what to say about my style but If I can use a phrase to describe it I would say a storytelling style.
We’re really into your new song "Start with Sorry"! Can you tell us a bit about it?
Well start with sorry is me 100 percent me from the beginning my my career I was always told how I should do certain things from the harmonies I chose to do the runs I did from what adlibs I did to production or subject matter and I felt like I always watered down what I was really capable of trying to fit in this Box. With start with sorry I wrote and sang it exactly how I wanted to.
Where did the inspiration behind "Start With Sorry" come from?
Past relationship I had where I have no excuse doing what I was which translated into no words to say when things when south so I Started with sorry.
What were some challenges you faced when writing the song?
Honestly, for the first time I was challenged vocally the key is pretty high for my range and will be fun singing live lol and its always challenge when your writing about something that makes sense from the beginning to the end especially when you write alone most people write in teams.
What’s next for Rob McCoy?
I have no idea what's next this business is extremely unpredictable if the song goes viral Ill have a better answer to this question!
