Introducing B.Simone

8:36 PM

Have you ever came across an individual who just has that star quality? Like they’re supposed to be famous?! Lol. Well I have, and B.Simone is definitely a rising star! Singing, dancing and the girl could even make a career being a comedian if she wanted. This triple threat from Dallas, Tx is making major moves with her new EP Lost Soul.  I had a chance to sit down with B.Simone and talk about her journey so far in the music business and what are we to expect from her in the future. Check it out!
 

 What was your concept for the album Lost Soul?
It really came after being in a girl group. I was in two girl groups before going solo. I was just all over the place. Not to say that I was a bad person, but I was just lost. Doing a bunch of stuff like partying, focusing on guys, not focusing on myself as an artist... A lot of people go through that stage in that life where they don’t know who they are; they don’t know what the future holds for them. I was at that point in my life where I don’t know what I want to do. The girl group thing kind of threw me off when we broke up. It wasn’t a good time in my life. I came back solo, did that for a year…everything worked out.

 
 
Of course this is a style blog. What is your style? When we see you, are how we going to know “That’s B.Simone!”?
As women in the industry you always want to have sex appeal but I’m such a tomboy. I like baggy clothes and stuff like that. My stylist is trying to work with me incorporating my style into being more sexy. So I might wear some Adidas jogging pants with some heels just to spice it up.

Speaking of Tomboy and baggy clothes, a lot of people say that you look like Aaliyah. What is your take on that?
Ummm, I’ve been getting that since I was in high school. So, I just say thank you. She was beautiful, she was America’s angel and no one has anything bad to say about her. She was an amazing person as from what I can see. I’m not going to stop anybody from saying that, because they are promoting me for free. So if you want to say that I look like Aaliyah and post my pics all day, go head! But I’m never going to be like “Oh, I look like Aaliyah”.
 
 
 How did the Aaliyah Tribute come about and how long was the process?
The fans requested that. I have a fan page on instagram …. They were writing me saying the passing date is coming up, you should do something! It was so last minute! I had to find dancers, I didn’t know any of the dances, and we learned the dances in a day or two. We shot the video in 12hrs, back to back, he edited in four days, and it should have been 3 weeks of editing. Everything was rushed but it had to be done by the date of her passing or it would have defeated the purpose. It worked out, it could have been better but for what it was it was cool.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to go into the music business?
The main thing is just to keep your business and personal separate. A lot of girls get in this industry messing with a lot of guys to get things, and it doesn’t have to be like that. If you work your ass off you can get it without being “that” girl. You have to find yourself before you can be yourself. Once you figure out who you are you can just run with it.
Is there anyone that you want to work with in the future?
My main person I want to work with is Drake. He’s just a musical genius to me! His music evokes so much emotion, and that’s what music should do. When he raps you are literally thinking of a time previously in your life that happened, and painting that picture. His music is amazing! I just want him to write for me and get him on a record.
 
 
 
Where do you see yourself in the next two years?
Hopefully, have some type of backing behind me, whether it’s an investor, or management. I’m doing everything on my own; I don’t know how to do that stuff. I just know how to be the artist. Just tell me where to go and what time. If I’m not signed to a major label, I would just like some type of team.
Now that lost soul has dropped, what’s next?
Just promoting and shooting a lot of visuals. This project is for people to see my potential and want to work with me. I need a manager, I need to find people who want to back up B.Simone and my brand. People are like” this is your first and you’re charging for it”? Sure am! If you don’t want to buy it, don’t buy it! You can go to YouTube and watch the videos for free! I’m not an established artist. I’m not expecting to sell THOUSANDS of records! That’s not the point. The point is to take my artistry serious. I’ve been working on this project for over a year, thousands of dollars, blowing through my savings. This is my career, this is my job.

 
By talking to B.Simone you can definitely tell that she is very passionate about her music and her journey. With her drive and dedication I’m sure we will see her excel in the music business! Good luck doll, you’re going to do great!
Lost Soul is available on iTunes and Amazon.com
