Mac: What would be your dream collaboration?
Ralesha: I’d say Beyoncè and James Fauntleroy, producer wise Pharrell
Mac: People always talk about who has motivated you, but was there a situation that was negative, that pushed you to go harder?
Ralesha: My whole life LOL I have definitely been through more than the average can handle. But I definitely turned each obstacle into fuel to push me to keep going
Mac: Has the music industry has evolved for R&B? and how?
Ralesha: I think music is constantly evolving. I think with each generation that passes, music is recreated to fit whatever time it’s in. I’m proud of where R&B is right now! On its way back!
Mac: Does music have a race or certain ‘stereotype’? and does it matter?
Absolutely not I think things like that are subjective, answer is based off who you’re talking to. But for me music is whatever the person creating it, wants it to be. That’s the beauty about music. It’s no race, no color or background. It’s universal! I think music is constantly evolving. I think with each generation that passes music is recreated to fit whatever time it’s in. I’m proud of where R&B is right now! On its way back!
Will our very own artists from Indianapolis be what the R&B game is missing? Let’s see who else will be apart of the next cypher.
