Soul P has released his new album "The Premiere" with Beatmart recordings, and we had the opportunity to talk with him about it.
What do you want to accomplish with your new album "The Premiere?"
Pretty much I want people to see a different of me as a artist style etc… This is a party record its fun and its serious when I'm dealing with certain issues that is see in everyday life when I walk the street. And hopefully this record will touch the Souls that listen to it in a good way and put you in a good mood and also have you thinking about the simple things in life and appreciate those things.
Why the title "The Premiere?"
Since this is my first record on a label we called it The Premiere like I'm stepping into a new and improved stage of my career as a artist and this is The Premiere for that stage in my life.
What inspired you writing the songs?
What always inspires me is just life and what I face everyday and I what I see that’s it, I write on experiences mostly what I have encountered in my life and stuff I see people go thru, just the everyday things that surround you.
Which song speaks to you the most and why?
The songs that speak to me the most right now are, Hold on And hold on because I have lost a lot of close people in the past 5 years and 2 in the last year and my mother is going through a trying time right now, and that song is real personal that people can relate with and right now that song is the one that I listen to the most. And also All I want because that is where I am at right now all I want is to be honestly right in Gods eyes and I am striving for that everyday.
