1) Tell us something about yourself that your fans may not know.
A: Hmm I guess there is still a lot to learn about me haha. I can create a song in just minutes, I can hear any beat for the first time and can create melodies in a few seconds, I’ve lived on my own since I was sixteen years old, I had three jobs and would sing on the street, I came to the USA by myself with the little money that my grandma gave me, I am addicted to almond milk and sashimi, I hate red roses and am in love with dark lilies, my favorite movie is Split and my favorite TV show is Euphoria. Those were some quick, random facts about me haha. Just keep on following me and stay tuned to find out more.
2) You just released your single 'Betrayal.' What was the meaning behind the song?
A: One day, I was streaming on Twitch and one of my subscribers messaged me a heartbreaking story about his girlfriend. She cheated on him. He was so upset about it and asked me to create a song about his heartbreak using the word betrayal because it was how the situation felt to him. When I would stream on Twitch, from time to time, I would take song requests from my subscribers. When he told me the story, that same evening, in about forty minutes, I created the song, “Betrayal.” I made the beat, lyrics, and everything.
3) What's the process like when heading into the studio to make a new song?
A: Well for the most part, the process is the same. First of all, I usually come up with lyrics and songs while driving around or in the shower haha. I start off with creating melodies and some mumbled, random words haha, but many times lyrics just pop into my head right away. Then, I fine tune the song. I have a little home studio setup, so I get the song fully prepared before heading to the recording studio. I never usually go to the studio before recording some demos at home and getting the song basically done, so I can just get in the booth and kill the song with the least amount of takes.
4) What kind of style would you say your music is?
A: Lada style haha. Honestly, I think it is tough to put my music into one specific genre. I feel like I am versatile and think my music has a little bit of everything. I guess I would say my main genre is Pop, but as you will see with my latest release and upcoming releases, my music has sounds from various genres: Hip-Hop/Rap, Trap, R&B, Indie, Rock, etc. I like to think my music is as unique as my name.
5) How was the transition from living in the Ukraine to Miami like?
A: It was an adjustment at first, especially bettering my English haha but it has been great. Miami finally feels like home. Ever since I was little, my dream was to come to the USA to become a famous artist. I used to write this dream down on a piece of paper every New Year’s Eve so it’s starting to feel like my dream is coming true.
6) If you could only have 1 collaboration for the rest of your career, who would it be?
A: I love your questions and hate them at the same time, they’re too hard for me. Well, I’d have to say ASAP Rocky. I actually already have a few songs for him to jump on.
7) When can fans expect your project this year?
A: I plan to release an EP sometime in Q2 or Q3 of this year. The date hasn’t been set yet, but I have a ton of songs either fully recorded or ready to be recorded. So, I would say a project is coming sooner rather than later.
8) What are your goals for 2020?
A: I plan to continue to release singles. I have an EP in the works that will be released either Q2 or Q3 of this year. I have some music videos that I will be directing in the works as well. I want to continue to grow my fanbase. Also, really looking forward to doing shows. With this whole virus going around, I am not sure when that is going to happen. Singing for a crowd of people is my favorite part about being a musician. I hope everybody continues to stay healthy and safe. I pray for speedy recoveries.
