Popular singer, Reekado Banks’ new 12-track album is set to be released and it will be titled “Daddy To Many.”
Formerly signed to the Don Jazzy-owned label, he recently granted an interview to discuss how his transition has been from being a signee to an independent artiste.
Asked on this change, his words, “Definitely growth, experience… there are many things, but it’s basically those two.”
On his quiet 2018, he said, “That wasn’t the plan. Running my label, I had to be hands on and in 2018, I wasn’t in control of anything. I was only in control of my creativity, so this was me doing whatever the label planned – being a signed artist.
“I wouldn’t say it was a plan to not be as popping as you would ordinarily think, but 2018 was still a good year. We had ‘Sensima,’ we had ‘Like,’ we had ‘Blessings on Me.”
On his type of sound, “There’s a larger crowd that I intend to appeal to and we are on the journey to. My mind is just wider, there are no boundaries anymore. There are many markets to sell this music to, so many people that need to hear.
“There’s no box or end to it. I’m happy I do and it expands my creativity. Everything works now.”
On his US tour, “All the relationships I was able to start. It was amazing, had fun, gathered experiences and enjoyed my life, basically. I met many important people, on the trip I was able to connect with my fans because that was like my first US tour. It was amazing, everybody had fun and everybody came out.”
“You can’t take away authenticity from this music thing. It’s going to show. Everytime I tried to record it (Rora), I tried to record like that, and it wasn’t just natural. That first one was natural.”
“Singing my feelings out first. If I want to talk about the government, talk about it, regardless of anything. If I want to talk about n****, I talk about it. It’s like anyhow I feel is how I will put it out from now. I’m not trying to please.”
We really cannot wait for Reeky baby.
