Welcome to BuzzMusic, Sapphyre Blu. We adore the soulful and passionate experience you've offered with your latest single, "Rewind." What inspired the song's reflective lyrical content?
I first wrote Rewind as a form of self-therapy, an outlet. I was coming out of a "situationship" and was taking it pretty hard. Because I cared so much for the person and we're still friends it made it difficult to express much on the situation so I was holding a lot in. I felt like the only way to release and heal was to write it and sing it. It was originally for myself but I let a few peers hear it and they all assured me it was a hit and needed to be heard by the world because so many could relate.
Was it easy for you to write from the heart and be so vulnerable during your songwriting process for "Rewind?" How long did it take to write your passionate lyrics?
Honestly, it was fairly easy, when I'm inspired or going through it, the words flow out like water. It's basically like if I could speak to this person and say everything I want to say as simply as possible, what would I say? So it literally took me 5 mins to write the song.
What did you want to make the listener feel and experience when hitting play on "Rewind?"
I wanted the listener to go back to the moment when they felt exactly how I was feeling. I wanted the listener to feel like they were speaking to their significant other, saying everything they wanted to ever say but couldn't. And If they hadn't been through anything similar, I wanted to invoke the feeling through my raw emotions in the song. Either way, you're going to feel the story.
Where would you say your music lands on the broad genre spectrum? Do you feel most comfortable creating music under a specific genre?
I feel my music lands in the pop genre because I just create whatever sound I'm feeling in the moment, my other music that's been released sounds nothing like Rewind. Rewind itself I feel definitely falls into the Soul/RnB category for sure. I feel most comfortable being open to creating. I have RnB music, pop, hip-hop, I even have some country and rock coming so I'm just an artist period.
What's next for you?
I'm working on a visual for "Rewind." I have some more songs dropping this year. I'll have some performances coming up more towards the spring etc... Preparing some things for the Metaverse, so it's really exciting. I'm very excited for 2022 and can't wait to connect more with my fans!
