Meet artist Bianca Iman, she released her recent project “WYD.” We briefly chopped it up with her about the inspiration behind this EP. She explained why her music is very soulful. Bianca thinks that is the best way to describe her sound, it is expressive and relatable for her listeners.
“I would definitely say it is more R&B, with Neo soul and hip hop influences. Each song on the EP is written from my personal experiences with a touch of vibes I was trying to set for the listener to be able to connect with. The “vibes” come through in the metaphors that are open to interpretation.”
The soulful artist shared what inspired this project, the structure of it and what’s next for her. “I definitely experimented a lot on this project. A couple of the records started as whole other songs that I kept revisiting and they eventually morphed into a whole other song.
“I wanted to experiment with the production also. I knew that I wanted to let the beats breathe, and not over saturate them with lyrics. So in order to have these “moments” in the beats, they had to be edgy and different.The sequence of the songs were definitely intentional. I start off the project re-introducing myself to the listener with “Miss Me” and “Two In.” Then I get the feels going with “Feel”, “Selfless” and “Candy Apples”. Ending with “Back to bed” just felt right.I’m excited to continue to sharpen my craft and experiment with different genre’s. I discovered I could write raps at a very young age, and a rap project is definitely in the works!”
