Mehcad Brooks, aka King Gvpsv, not only sings and makes music, but has a history in acting as well. The award-winning actor seamlessly entered the music field and has jumped right into advocating female empowerment through his tracks.
His latest release ‘Oceans’ is a pop/ R&B track that chastises the male ego and how it threatens female autonomy.
We had the opportunity to ask him a couple questions…
‘Oceans’ is a relaxed, yet strong track with a great message. Can you tell us about what it means?
Oceans’ is about female empowerment and female independence, free of the opinions of men and how ever he may feel about how & what she uses her attributes for. I think the world that we live in right now is extremely shallow however is it truly my place to judge a woman who’s able to exploit that shallow culture for what she wants.
What are you doing when you’re not making music?
Thinking about making music…
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be?
How would you describe your musical style?
Eclectic and soulful with an EDM foundation.
What is one thing you hope fans take away after listening to your music?
On the first listen I hope they hear it, meaning they like how it sounds. On the second listen I hope they listen to the lyrics and take whatever message they want from it. On the third listen I hope they find the underlying messages that I put in all the songs. I endeavoured to make each song somebody’s anthem at some point in their lives.
What are you looking most forward to in 2019?
Right now everyday is a gift and I’m looking forward to all 365 gifts.
