With the major success of Fox‘s hit series Empire, producer Timbaland‘s female protege V Bozeman has been making quite the name for herself, and is this year’s new break-out artist.
From the opening scene of the highest-rated show, inquisitive minds wanted to know — who was the beautiful female in the studio booth, singing with such power and control? From then on, Bozeman’s featured song soared via social media and Spotify gaining her credibility, placing her in the high rankings of “the artist to look out for.”
Recently, the singer/songwriter sat down with Pynk Magazine for their ‘PGOTD: Pynk Girl of The Day’ Spotlight for Women’s History Month; to discuss some of her biggest setbacks that she faced in the music industry, and what she does to uplift herself when she’s feeling discouraged.
This feature was “Approved” by L.A.’s own top-tier Lifestyle Specialist and Pynk Girl, Miss Diddy of The Brand Group.
Check out a few quotes from the interview below:
What was the most difficult struggle that you faced during the beginning of your career? Are you still dealing with the struggles?
I think that the most difficult struggle that I’ve dealt with was just breaking into the entertainment world period. I’m from South Central LA, so I had to go through a lot of wolves in sheep’s clothing to really get to legitimate people that could really help me to get to the next level. Different experiences could have taken me on a dark path or just not even gotten me here period. You have to go through the growing pains.
What are some setbacks that you’ve faced getting into the industry?
I’ll be real; there were so many setbacks. People have tried to put me in a box. Labels are always trying to put me in a neo-soul box. Not that I hate neo-soul, but I’m just like yea I’m dark, I’m baldheaded, but that doesn’t mean I only sing a certain kind of way. I think that’s so narrow minded and simple to think. People would also say, “you don’t have the look.” Being an artist you can’t let other people define who you are. You really have to know yourself, be comfortable in your skin and know that you are enough. I think that carrying those ideals with me along the way got me through. I know that god has given me something special and my mission is to touch the world with this gift. So once I kept that in mind, the world seemed much more clearer than if I didn’t know these things.
When you are feeling discouraged, how do you lift your spirit?
First I pray and I ask god to give me strength. I work out a lot. Working out helps me release tension and it helps me reset and literally sweat out the stresses that I have. I also meditate often. I spend time with myself and there’s nothing wrong with spending time with you and getting used to just being by yourself. At the end of the day you’re going through your struggles, not to say that people aren’t there to help you do it, but you are the only one going through it. It’s important to coach yourself through it because life is going to bring something new everyday, some good some bad. You just have to get through it.
