Our only critique? We wish that “A.I” was longer. However, we have a quick fix for that; we’ll just put this hit on repeat as we wait for the next captivating tune from Vokal Legend himself.
Congratulations on the release of, “A.I.” What inspired the ever so unique lyrics in this single?
I write what I see. The media tends to hide a lot of the truth that should actually be brought to headlines. Don't get me wrong, a lot of the stuff in politics and such we should always keep an eye on but still.
As one to write about what surrounds you, how do you approach your songwriting when it comes to the creative process?
The events that take place right under our noses are also the things that should be taken just as seriously. I want to use my music, to tell the truth of the events I learn of and witness. But also to create atmospheres where one can escape and find their inner peace and enjoy themselves wholeheartedly.
If you could collaborate with anyone living or dead, who would it be and why?
One artist to collaborate with is Busta Rhymes. Why? The flow he executes and his energy in delivery are crazy. Very talented man.
What would you like your listeners to take away from the messaging in, “A.I?"
I want people to remember that even though we were born in a world of borders and boundaries, we were meant to evolve. We were meant for more. Free your mind and live the life you desire. No one can keep you from doing what you desire more than yourself.
What can we expect to see from you next?
I have a few more projects on the go already. Nothing but great music to come.
