Welcome to BuzzMusic, Young Sixx! Congratulations on your release of, “Shining,” featuring D.DOT! What was it like working with one another in order to bring this song forth? How did the collaboration come to be?
Me and D.DOT are long-time collaborators but before that we are family !! DDOT always experimenting so when he heard the original it was moving positive energy and he just wanted to lay his own twist and give our character! The actual track was recorded 3 years ago but, I don’t find the right time to release it, but after all the pandemic, and social chaos I felt for me personally it’s time to shine, so I told DDOT lets re-record it and let it go!
What inspired you to create your own rendition of the song, “Shining”?

In terms of themes and messaging, what are you hoping that your audience takes away from this track?
Just to shine no matter what you are going thru, don’t let anyone cloud or block your shine and just feel good, all your wins may not be celebrated but you are still winning and enjoy that
What can we expect from you in terms of future releases in 2021?
I plan to be consistent to build a da base and catalog of music and offer variety and range of content.
What has been keeping you inspired to create music?
The music itself inspires me, I love the creative part of making the concept and storyline, and when it does gravitate to the fan's friends and supporters who let me know they feel the music and enjoy it too.
