The true testament of an artist’s work is how commanding their presence is when you hear them. An artist who engages you as soon as you hear them, to the point you feel the words, and enjoy the music limitlessly. That’s what HunnaV does in his music. After hearing his new song “Back Seat” we wanted to know more about the artist. He was gracious enough to answer some questions for us. Below is the interview.
Who is HunnaV the artist?
HunnaV is a brand new artist from the East Coast. He is 23 years old and a recent college graduate who is pursuing a career in music!
His debut song with Eazy Mac and Dax did impressive numbers reaching half million streams on Spotify alone since then he has not slow down he is still consistently dropping singles and collabs every month.
Who are some of the influences and how do you incorporate that into the music?
His top 3 influences are Dax, Juice WRLD, and Post Malone. These three are a huge inspiration because of their personalities and attitudes. They always stay positive. I like to incorporate all three of their styles into my own I like to use the Dax’s mentality Juice WRLD’s melodic vibe with a Post Malone type sound to create my own HunnaV sound.
What was the creative process for your new song “Back Seat”?
Backseat was a song I made when I felt low and unappreciated. I always like to take an emotional song and added twist of positivity in it. I honestly did not think this song would be liked by many but I was wrong. I had close friends message me saying this is their favorite song of mine and they told me this song turn them from a friend to a genuine fan of mine. That was an amazing thing to hear coming from close friends.
How does it feel now that “Back Seat” is out for people to hear?
What I aim for in my music is to create a vibe that can resonate with peoples emotions and make them feel better when listening to my songs. Whether my songs help you realize you’re not alone or whether they hype you up either way I want my audience to feel a connection. I want them to know anything is possible you just have to manifest it and chase your dreams constantly.
If you could give any advice to someone looking to become an independent artist, what would it be?
I am actually in the process of writing a “how to” book on how to start making music and how to be successful in music. I hope to have it done by July this year and get it published on amazon. All my Advice will be in their along with tips and tricks to help beginner musicians that may be taking a similar path as me.
What’s next for HunnaV?
The next big step for me is to release my very first album. The past year has been a huge learning curve and I’ve been trying to find a sound and learn my way around the music business before I started an album. Now that my “rookie” season is over I feel like I’m ready to create an all-around amazing album with some of my favorite artists.
