BVM was granted the opportunity to interview Anthony Q (Some will know him as Que from Day26) In our interview we learned that he has new music, a jewelry line, and is now the face of a clothing line. He is moving full throttle to make 2013 a good year for himself. Check out the Interview below.
BVM: WHAT'S THE FIRST SONG YOU EVER REMEMBER HEARING?
Que: The first song that I heard I would probably have to say Mariah Carey's song Hero. You can go on youtube and see a clip of me singing the song in Kindergarden. My youtube Account is 1anthonyQ for those of you interested in youtube and I got a standing ovation. So I would say Hero by Mariah Carey would be the first song.
BVM: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO LATELY?
Que: I listen to brandy, Beyonce, Frank Ocean is Amazing, Miguel, Usher..I'm probably up to date with alot of artist that you listen to like trey songz is another Amazing artist. I still listen to day26 because I believe that they were..Excuse me we were a really dope group musically. So I just listen to alot of people that evolve musically to the next level. Gospel wise I listen to Kim Burrell. I'm a big fan of Kim Burrell.
BVM: AS A SOLOIST DO YOU FIND IT EASIER TO PICK YOUR OWN SOUND?
Que: It wasn't that difficult of a task in being in a group. That was mad fun so I don't wanna push that off like the group thing wasn't amazing. Being a solo artist is also fun to because I get alot of creative control and I'm able to go into the studio and do alot of different things with my music. It's fun being a solo artist just because you can create your own music. Like if your really good at thinking (up music) you can really come out with some good stuff you know what I mean.
BVM: WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR SONG "MEDICINE" ?
Que: That song was written by Phil and Lil Mo And I'm pretty sure they had a really good meaning behind the song. When I heard it I thought it was an Amazing joint and I wanted to record it as soon as I heard it in the studio. They was like I got this dope joint and I was like let me hear it, they played it and I was like can i record it and they was like yeah. Thats how amazing I thought that record was. Im pretty sure they had a deep meaning behind it because the song is dope.
BVM: FIRST CONGRATS ON BECOMING THE FACE OF THREADZ CLOTHING BOUTIQUE..HOW DID THAT COME TO BE AND WHERE CAN PEOPLE BUY THEIR CLOTHING?
Que: Yeah I just became the face of a Clothing Company Boutique in Atlanta called Threadz and its really dope. It has alot of cool urban stuff in there that I'm sure alot of young adults,Adults, and kids will like. It reminds me of a newer Urban Outfitters. It has alot of things like if your into Skatboards, racing cars, camoflauge and stuff like that you will like it.
