Lightskin Bobby is not your average singer. He wants to take it to the next level and go “worldwide” hint with his joint project with Byrto that was released this year. It was planned as a single but later became a duo project. With his definition of music by taking it to the next level in the music scene, he has ways by industry friends, who he can learn from, to pinpoint his journey to where he can create his story and bring legacy behind him with originals along the way. We sat down with the artists and gone in-depth with how he has been on the rise on the scene, the relationship with Byrto and how ‘Worldwide’ became a duo project and more below.
RESPECT.: Define RESPECT.
Acknowledgment of one who they are human and their presence is needed.
RESPECT.: With the duo project, that is a 20-track project called Worldwide, tell us a little bit about that and you guys relationship?
I am a studio junkie that consistently be there every day or every week. I had gotten introduced to Byrto through a friend and we worked together on my song called “Worldwide” that later became a duo project. I like the feature of my song and wanted to keep recording because I didn’t think to do a project. To get 20 songs, we recorded over 100 from January of 2018 to the beginning of this year. I can’t sit on songs so my idea was to do a project called ‘Worldwide’ because I want to go worldwide.
RESPECT.: With your rise in the Atlanta music scene, name some artists who inspired you to start your music career?
A lot of ’90s r&b, for instance; Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Michael Jackson. I was addicted to the Jacksons’ American Dream and the visuals. When I started, I knew the songs and dances. My cousin, Shay, told me to start singing. When we were in Columbia, SC, I took her advice by going to shows. Usher and Immature became my start by going to the Apollo stage and being the artist I am today.
RESPECT.: How do you take your career to the next level? What’s the plan?
Growing up around industry executives who motivated me to become the best and influence me to do it. I had many people around me to where I learn their mistakes, but take my own journey in the music business. I had to focus on my craft while working regular jobs. When I am not working, I’m writing songs. I am getting a step ahead of people. I have always wanted my own production, so instead of going to the main people everyone relies on, I built relationships with other people so we can all be on the rise together.
RESPECT.: Define your name.
For about four to five years, Breyon is who I went by that name. When I went to do a show in Miami, I had good vibes with artists who were on the rise at the time. One of them jokingly called me light skin Bobby Brown by how I talked to women and my stage presence. A joke became my reality. People started saying it more and more as a household name. I needed a name to say with ease. I am a different person that comes out naturally like it is on my own.
RESPECT.: What will be next for you? Any projects in the works?
By having three albums and started with my fourth project, every album is a different level. It is an introduction to who I am as a person and entertainer but it elevates by showing growth, pain, soul, passion and the struggle of how I am on the right path. I will build with my team that tells a vibe, but it will be half and half r&b and hip-hop. You can feel that I will have that edge coming from the streets because of my personality. Legends Never Die after Last of Dying Breed that should be released around between my birthday and Valentine’s Day.
