Romee was born in Los Angeles, California on April 10th, 1990. As a young child he moved with his mother to the DMV area, although he grew up with both parents in his life, he was mostly raised by his grandmother who took him to church and choir practice, where he learned of his talent to sing. Growing up, Romee split most of his childhood among DC, New York, and Georgia. Romee's father was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, and took Romee as a child to the historic Motown Museum. It was here where he developed his love for songwriting and fell in love with music. With his smooth vocal tone, creative writing style, and strong physical physique, he has been compared to Tank, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Rico Love, and Ne-yo. After taking a hiatus from the music industry for two years, he is back to put his name in the race for the new generations elite artist.
“Run It Up” features compelling lyrics, original and intriguing all the way through. A slightly more classic rap style emerges, a little higher of an energy level, a quicker pace and a series of more accessible moments. The verses add personality, whereas the hook adds definite depth and individuality on a whole other level. The balance and dynamic works brilliantly in building something refreshing and unlike anything else around in hip-hop at present. “Run It Up” becomes quite addictive in natur-e--you thrash the replay button just to capture those bars once more, to lose yourself in the fullness and darkness of the sound, and to try to finally get a stronger grasp of the concept in general. We love this new track by Romee, and can’t wait to see what he will bring to the table next in his music!

Hey Romee! Welcome to BuzzMusic! What inspired you to start recording your music?
My dad is a musician, I grew up going to the studio and getting postcards from him on tour in Germany. He’s from Detroit so at 8 or 9 he took me to the Motown museum, and I got to see Michael Jackson glove and almost lost my mind lol. Ever since then I understood music like ne-yo see’s the matrix.
What can you tell us about your debut single “Run It Up”? What was the writing process like?
Run It up is a motivational song, it’s for the average person who has to hustle late at night or work a 9-5 to put food on the table. Even if you not getting money, it’ll make you feel like you should go get some money. The writing process was simple, me and my engineer! I never have anybody in the studio, I rarely let people call me or answer the phone. It’s really just me, the mic, the engineer and the music with no distractions.. sounds crazy but it works!
What do you feel is the most hard-hitting lyric within “Run It Up”?
“I just pray they see me pull up on them in a Bentley truck” it’s basically like “he who laughs last, laughs hardest” type of thing lol. If you ever get to pull up on the block you grew up on, or pull up on some people who said you wouldn’t make it! Think about how much more it gotta hurt to know it’s not just I’m not just doing well... I’m doing BENTLEY TRUCK well lol
If you could work with anyone at all, past or present, who would you choose and why?
Probably Rico Love, he writes music how I see music. He has a creative way of approaching topics that everyone talks about but no one wants to discuss. Plus he wrote for Beyoncé doesn’t get much better than that!
Is live performance an important part of your plans? If so, what can audiences expect from a live show?
Live performances are extremely important, it’s the chance to have the audience connect to you and the music on a personal level. In my performances, you're going to get energy and vocals, I want to leave a lasting impression on people’s mind. So even if you didn’t come to see me, you want to know who I’am by the end of the night.
