Aijalon Singz talks musical inspiration
After hearing his single with artist OBNDZ Been A While and his other two singles Close To Me and Reliable I knew i wanted to do a write up on him. I like how this collective moves as a whole, they tag each other under post , they support each other and do music together; that's a hard combination to come across and should be guarded dearly. I also like Aijalon's flow and presentation as an artist.
To learn more about him check out the full interview below:
Walk us through your background- Tell us more about you and your music
Well, music has always been a part of my background from sitting on my great grandmothers lap singing, “Yes Jesus Loves Me” to singing in church choirs. I’ve always had an ear for music, just watching how it can make a person feel. Once that became apparent to me, I knew I wanted to partake in music, just didn’t know how. I grew up listening to a lot of the greats in different eras, but the era of Tupac really stuck with me. You may ask, “how does a Gangster Rapper influence your RnB”? Tupac influences me because of the person he was/is lol, I’m still a believer that he is out there, but he showed true artistry of self by being for the people and always relating. So in my music I put myself in every song I take I connect with people through the lyrical content and I feel that I’m showing people it’s ok to tell a person how you feel.
What inspires you?
What inspires me is my immediate family my mom, sister, nieces and nephews. Also my true friends are great motivators as well and they want more things for me than I do. But one of my biggest inspirations to keep doing what I do is my best friend, although she passed away. She always hyped me up to everything, so everything I do, I dedicate to her and her family.
What are some of the obstacles you've faced and how has it made you better?
As most artist encounter obstacles with money and self, that’s really the only obstacles, but it made me better because it showed me how to keep residual income coming in from many different angles. I don't deal with self problems because I am the only problem to myself, so changing the mindset will change your life.
What is your 5 year plan for your music and for yourself?
My 5 year plan for my music is to just continue putting out the best music. As far as myself you’ll see I like to keep some things about me a mystery, just know there will be albums, EPs, LPs, and videos coming all in this 5 year period. I also know that a lot of awards and award shows will be coming my way as well.
What do you want people to takeaway from your music?
I want people to take a sense of positive energy and realness. All my music comes from the heart and experiences of my own as well as people around me. I want the people, fans, and friends to know it’s alright to be vulnerable and to relate to someone else.
Where can people find your music?
All my music is on all digital platforms. Apple, Tidal, Deezer, ITunes, And Youtube as well
