Hello there, welcome to Honk Magazine. Can you tell our readers about what really inspired you to write music?

Yvng Sammie – What really inspired me to write music was the life experiences I had growing up. I feel like everyone has a story and this was the best way to express my emotions and people can definitely relate to my sounds. If you have an ear for music you’ll know what I’m telling you lyrically.

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

Yvng Sammie – I realized I was going to make music professionally when the music/artists I would dance to, some videos would be copyrighted; so when I go and film these videos and get ready to post, it would get taken down shortly after. I immediately told myself I can’t be creating all this sauce for nothing. So I started making what I would like to hear and what I believe my supporters from dancing would want to hear.

What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?

Yvng Sammie – Once you release your first single, don’t dwell on the numbers. Keep releasing and people will eventually have to tap in to what you’re on to. Consistency is key.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Yvng Sammie – The best thing you can do in this game is be real. If you’re in it for the clout, open doors and opportunities. You’ve already failed.

Any last piece of advice for those artists who just started making music?

Yvng Sammie – I believe your first 10 records should be singles, no features unless it’s your bae then that’s different, but if you want people to know you; they have to keep seeing your name.

Adelide Takes a Bite Out of Temptation in New Disco-Inspired Track “Witness”

Adelide

In an innovative new release, Adelide, a prominent soul-pop artist from NYC, presents “Witness,” a song that artfully combines the rhythmic essence of 80s disco with a contemporary twist. This soulful track explores the theme of forbidden love and is characterized by lush synths, captivating rhythms, and Adelide’s compelling vocals.

“Witness” reinterprets the timeless tale of temptation within the context of a modern, queer romance. Adelide’s emotive and resonant vocals complement vibrant synths and bass lines inspired by funk, resulting in a nostalgic yet refreshingly unique soundscape. The song’s narrative draws parallels to the Garden of Eden, inviting listeners into a realm where passion and surrender intersect, establishing “Witness” as a poignant anthem for those who embrace love boldly.

The music video, directed by Margot Bennett, serves as a visual complement to the song’s themes. Set in a contemporary Garden of Eden, the video features stunning cinematography and choreography that immerse viewers in a dreamlike world of desire and temptation. Notably, the video includes a memorable scene of Adelide biting into a pear—an ironic twist on the forbidden apple—only to humorously spit it out at the crew’s insistence, injecting a touch of humor into the otherwise sensual visual narrative.

Adelide’s “Witness” offers more than just music; it provides an immersive experience for both the auditory and visual senses. With its infectious rhythm and captivating storyline, this track is positioned to make a significant impact in the soul-pop and disco revival genres.

Adelide continues to push artistic boundaries and redefine musical genres, making “Witness” essential listening and its accompanying video a must-see. Immerse yourself in this modern-day Eden and allow Adelide to guide you through the complexities of love in “Witness.”

Azu Yeché stirs a soulful serenity with his new single, “Leave Me Now”

AZU YECHÉ

BritishNigerian artist AZU YECHÉ demonstrates exceptional songwriting and musical talent in his latest single, “Leave Me Now.” This profoundly introspective song masterfully delivers a soul-stirring anthem for anyone who has encountered the heartache of a strained romantic relationship. It was entirely self-written and performed on the guitar, encapsulating the perspective of an individual grappling with a partner’s uncertain commitment.

Yeché’s decision to record his vocals in just one or two takes adds an authentic layer of vulnerability while amplifying the raw emotion of the moment. His collaboration with Jim Lawton in the studio has resulted in a subtle and warm production, allowing the song’s soulful core to shine through. Yeché’s musical style represents a captivating blend of soul, gospel, and African influences reminiscent of artists like Michael Kiwanuka, Lianne La Havas, Jordan Mackampa, and Leon Bridges. The slow-paced percussion and serene acoustic strings establish a contemplative ambiance, harmonizing flawlessly with Yeché’s commanding yet relaxed vocal performance.

Lyrically, “Leave Me Now” lays bare a heartfelt plea for genuine love, underscored by Yeché’s emotive delivery. The repeated lines, “If your lovin’ is ruled by someone else, leave me now, oh leave me now, if your lovin’ ain’t as strong as mine, leave me now, oh leave me now,” poignantly express the desperation and resignation of someone choosing to ultimately embrace the painful decision of separation rather than endure a half-hearted affection. His intimate and unguarded approach will enable the audience to deeply sense every pang of honesty expressed through the song.

Leave Me Now” represents a significant addition to any music collection and is a must-listen for enthusiasts of captivating soul music. Yeché, known for his two-part EP, Soul Afrikanah (part one and part two), which delved into his dual identity using folk and soul genres, showcases yet another dimension of his diverse artistry with this single. This further cements his prominent status in the realm of contemporary soul music.
