Q: How Would You Describe Your Sound And Music?
A: “I would describe it as something of a new fresh sound with a lil bit of soul and everything that is inspirational”
Q: Did You Expect Your Latest Video “We Pray” To Go Viral With 22 Million Views?
A: “We pray, I never knew that that video would go viral especially after hearing what my peers around me said as far as them wanting me to release something more rough for the streets. But I had this feeling that this was the song, its what people need. We simply leaked the song with no promo or DJ promo. I’m excited for more growth of the song now that I have the right management”
Q: Let’s Talk About Your Most Recent Song “Crazy”
A: “I mixed this with a new urban pop feeling of reggae and it’s something for the ladies, its reality between a man and a woman.”
Q: Could You Discuss More About Your New Management Compound Entertainment?
A: “Everyone on the team understands my culture and have a Jamaican background. It’s just more perfect for me and it’s what I’ve been missing over the years. I never had a manager before.”
For the fall, Dre plans to be known across the world even though he is Farley new in the United States. He wants people to know his face and sound; along with being excited for his new project, “Now I Rise.”
“I put together personally and produced 4 tracks from the 12 tracks…featuring family friends.”
