The beauty behind music, is that it can be used as a tool for many things. There are artists who make music with the sole purpose of just having fun. There are also artists who create music to inspire. Some even make music that has multiple meanings and purpose behind it all. Some of the best music that has transpired throughout the evolution of the art, is the music that showcases pure emotion. The reality behind it all, and the realness that comes from within is something that is to be appreciated in the long run, since it is as truthful as can be. For the Colorado Springs-native, Vwillz, he’s making his Lyrical Lemonade debut with his heartfelt new visual for his song “Emo Rhapsody”.
While it’s not every day that we hear that a new artist has been making noise out of Colorado, Vwillz does not let that tarnish his artistry or his vision, for he is capable of creating the music that he enjoys regardless of where he is from geographically. The idea that an artist is capable of making music that can be played no matter where you are from, or what sound your city is accustomed to, is something that is not easily accomplished by any artists. On “Emo Rhapsody”, Vwillz gets very deep and personal as he reflects about his life and memories from his past that he is not too proud of. The song itself, he is singing to his mother, as he continues to bleed pure emotion and pain. While by now, we are no stranger to the emotional rap sound, this song adds more flavor to that has already been ventured by other artists. The beat entirely produced by himself, features a beautiful piano ballad on top of trap drums and hi-hats that adds to the overall feeling of the entire record.
When speaking to Vwillz about the creation of the video, he had this to say:
“I was influenced by the late great Freddie Mercury of Queen when I came across the idea to sample Queen’s hit record “Bohemian Rhapsody.” I decided I wanted to pay homage to the song by using the same flow in the hooks as Freddie does, but using my own lyrics to tell a differing story from the original. The point of putting out a record like this, is to remind all of you that you are not alone in your endeavors-and as cliche as it might sound, anything really is possible. It’s important that we learn how to manage our thoughts, and if not on our own, seek help. No one makes it in this world alone-we all need someone. And if you feel like you don’t have anyone, you do now. I’m here to be a voice for all of us through the music I create and share with you all.”
