We love your new track “You Know It”, Boi Blue! Can you tell us about the meaning behind the lyrics? What was the writing process like?
Thank you! Coming up with the process of this track was easy really. Once I figured out the melody the words kinda fell into place. I actually wrote this song without instruments, it was all a cappella at first.
Where did the name Boi Blue originate?
I got the name “Blue” from a childhood friend, it symbolizes my dark complexion, I just embraced it, “Boi” came later on.
What’s your favorite lyric in “You Know It”? Why?
In the second verse I said “ first class put you on flight, we can go tonight, you’re my prototype, show you right.” Was my favorite line because I didn’t write it! The whole second verse was freestyle. That feeling was real in the studio because everyone there was cheering me on, that vibe was priceless.
If you could collaborate with any artist, dead or alive, who would you choose? Why?
Prince most definitely!! I was a big fan of Purple Rain growing up, would’ve loved that experience.
What’s your fanbase like in Atlanta?
My fan base in Atlanta are very original, especially the ones who grew up here. My music is real Atlanta, and soulful as well.
What's next for you?
Evolution! I have two projects done, I plan on releasing them both in 2019, merchandising, and touring! All put together by yours truly. I’m also working with other up and coming artist, hopefully I can start my own label as well.
