Fly Interview: Singer JR Castro Talks Timbaland, New Music & Performs “Love You Down” for SFPL TV

JR-Castro-sfpl-tv

Singer/Songwriter JR Castro has been creating quite a buzz for himself with his new single/visual “Get Home” featuring Kid Ink & Quavo (of Migos). The official video to the hit song is not only climbing the music charts, but has now reached over 1 million views on Vevo in a matter of 3 weeks. The song was inspired by Faith Evans‘ 1995 cut “Soon As I Get Home”, which you can hear the classic lyrics written by Sean “Puffy” Combs, Carl Thomas and Faith herself, throughout the chorus of the song. Castro also currently has a collaborative tune with Sevyn Streeter & YG entitled “That Shit Go (Up-Down), produced by Polow Da Don.

Recently, the up and coming Las Vegas talent stopped by Stuff Fly People Like‘s very own, SFPL TV to talk about his upcoming debut EP You Executive Produced by Timbaland, his forthcoming mixtape Songs You Were Made To, wanting to work with Quincy Jones, Kehlani and Meelah (formally of 702) and also speaks on the phrase “R&B is dead,” which seems to be a verbal term that is used due to the disappointment of Soul music. In the midst of the interview, Castro also performed the Ready For The World classic, “Love You Down” LIVE.

About Timbaland he says: 

Ah man, it was an outer-earth experience man…he’s an alien! That’s what I call him! He’s great, he’s inspiring, and he just really knows how to really elevate one’s prospective, especially on their approach to music.

About the term “R&B Is Dead”:

I think R&B is confused. I don’t think it’s dead, I just think it’s confused. I think that because Hip-Hop is so dominant that the R&B guys are trying to figure out a way…(as he pause, sighs and thinks of the right words to say)…….It’s like this, I feel like R&B now is “Rap-Melod'” — it’s rap lyrics sung over R&B melodies. You know what I mean? Which, takes away from the essence of R&B. The true core of R&B. That’s what I feel about it — I just think it’s confused.

SFPL Music: Timbaland feat. Migos – “Them Jeans”

timbaland-them-jeans

Legendary producer and artist, Timbaland, today dropped “Them Jeans” featuring Migos in anticipation of his upcoming album TextBook Timbo. This will mark Timbaland’s fourth solo album under his own label Mosley Music Group, a joint venture with Epic Records.

His first album release since 2009, the concept of TextBook Timbo, takes it back to the beginning – to the roots of what Timbaland is known and recognized for in a textbook style album. The project features a heavy-hitting line up of industry favorites including: Future, Justin Timberlake, Migos, Jay-Z, Missy Elliot, Drake and Lil Wayne.

Timbaland says:

“This project has been a long time coming and I am excited to give my fans something new and dope to look forward to. I’ve got a lot of new talented artists involved in this project, we’ve created something really special.”

With the current growth of the first single “UFO,” featuring Future and Tink, the album continues to build momentum as it heads towards its official drop within the coming months. Similarly, the current single “Smile” featuring V.Bozeman off of Timbaland’s album Opera Noir dropping at the top of 2016, has only added to the anticipation of both projects on the horizon. V.Bozeman from the TV show EMPIRE that Timbaland is the music Executive Producer for is featured on every song on Opera Noir.

**Premiere** Fly Acoustics: Singer Tweet Talks New Album ‘Charlene’, 8-Year Hiatus, Performs Single “Won’t Hurt Me” & more

tweet-fly-acoustics

After a very long music hiatus, our favorite songbird is back and ready to deliver!

Singer/Songwriter Tweet, stopped by Stuff Fly People Like‘s premiere of Fly Acoustics, a music series where artists get personal, share past & present experiences, all while presenting new music, and delivering a LIVE acoustic performance to media conglomerates and fans on-site.

While kicking the segment off, Tweet spoke on why she took time off:

I have been preparing myself for this moment, just getting myself together spiritually after the second album didn’t go too well — I decided to take a break and kinda get my life spiritually together. So, in that I rededicated myself to Christ — so he would orchestrate everything that’s happening now. And, I also signed to a couple of labels, and it just didn’t work out.

Since her last 2005 album, It’s Me Again, Tweet followed up with a new EP 8-years later entitled Simply Tweet.

Tweet’s new forthcoming album Charlene (Jan. 2016) gives us a journey through her written diary, sharing the up and downs of life, and what she was going through within the hiatus.

tweet-fly-acoustics

Tweet also talks about wanting to get back to “real soul music,” that makes you think, that speaks of liberation for women, and just simply that “good feeling.” She even speaks of perhaps doing a full Gospel album one day, per request from her aunt, Juanita before she passed away.

Check out the FULL visual of our very own, ‘Fly Acoustics’ below with a special performance from Tweet of new single “Won’t Hurt Me”:

Tweet’s album ‘Charlene’ drops on January 22, 2016, just a day after her birthday.
