[Single] Coupe Daze – Anxiety @coupedaze

ANXIETY

Virginia rapper, producer 1/2 Beatmaejors & CEO of Dream Reality entertainment coupe digs deep with this ‘Anxiety’ record

Coupedaze “Anxiety” (Single) Review
Written by Medallio Green
“Anxiety,” written and performed by Anthony Porter and produced by Thirty Mil, is lyric gold. The first song to be featured on Coupedaze, focuses on the struggles of the everyday human-being that are normally overlooked in mainstream rap, “Trying to see the light/Story of my life/Demons in my life/Feeling sick of life…” Nothing about the song touches the past flavor of hoes in different area codes, but instead it is uniting with the current rap movement where the words are once again the main feature. This song causes you to sit back and just listen to the truth that Anthony is spinning and twisting into something that actually stays on topic and describes anxiety. No heavy base dropping that turns the listener away from the lyrics, just a style that keeps the listener’s attention from the first melodic piece to the last.

NEW ARTIST: DENAE JOI INTERVIEW WITH DJ JAY ERICA

unnamed-2

This year I had the honor of meeting talented performer, singer-songwriter, poet, actress, & model Denae Joi. In October I did a radio interview with the rising star which was syndicated on many radio platforms including Straight official radio. Denae Joi has ended the year of 2017 with a bang. She released her first official single ‘Shake It’ a record produced by DJ Nicki Nice & Ebrill to iTunes, Spotify, & more worldwide. Since then her single has been picked up by various radio stations across the country with positive reviews; building momentum towards her much anticipated EP ‘Misfit’ due for release January 2018. I recently sat down with Denae Joi once again for a fun QA regarding her life & music career. Check out our Q&A interview below!

DJ Jay Erica Intro: Firstly, thank you, Denae Joi, for sitting back down with me again to discuss your music career. It was great speaking with you previously. You’ve have had so much progress since our last conversation. I want to ask you a few more questions regarding your career as a rising performer and discuss your upcoming EP project ‘Misfit’ if that’s ok?

Denae Joi: Of Course it’s okay and thanks so much for speaking with me again today.

Q: You are welcome. Can you firstly tell the viewers where you are from?

A: I’m originally from Orlando, Fl. However, I currently reside in Atlanta, Ga.

Q: How long have you been in Atlanta & what was it specifically that made you decide to relocate from your hometown?

A: I’ve been in Atlanta for about a year and four months now. I decided to relocate from my hometown due to there being more opportunities for me to progress as a performer in the city of Atlanta.

Q: Can you specify exactly what you mean?

A: Orlando is a small city and there aren’t as many opportunities for performers such as myself to pursue a career in the entertainment business successful. The networking space is limited, unlike Atlanta which is a much larger city with a bigger entertainment scene to network and progress as an independent artist.

Q: How do you like Atlanta?

A: I love it. It has been very conducive to my growth as a performer & person.

Q: How so?

A: Personally, I feel the environment has allowed me to be more expressive artistically due to the various networking events with people of similar & different walks of life; which has given me artistic inspiration overall developing me to who I am today and whom I’m continuing to grow to become. I’ve learned more things about myself because I’m out here on my own. Specifically, I grew up very sheltered so moving to Atlanta has allowed me to explore myself more then I have before because I had the family to depend on prior to me moving on my own. So now I do everything on my own and have now further developed as a woman through me relocating alone and depending solely on myself. I’ve learned who I am as a woman and accept myself and who I’ve grown into and not trying to be. I’m not so focused on trying to fit in an image of what the world finds acceptable for me or wants me to be.

Q: Well that’s tough sometimes being an artist your often under the watchful radar which can make you a direct target for rumors & criticism negative criticism more so I’m speaking of specifically. How do you handle that?

A: I’m still learning how to deal with it. However, I love myself so much so I understand I cannot control what others think or say about me be it negative or positive comments or criticism. As long as I know the truth about me I have no need to even address rumors put out  there.

Q: Ok, Now let’s get back to the music because that’s the main reason you are here; tell me Denae Joi how long have you been pursuing your career as a performer and when did you start taking it seriously?

A: I’ve been pursuing my career as a performer for about 3 years now. I started taking it more seriously after completing college around 2015.

Q: Whose your influences?

A: I’m a fan of old school RnB. Sade, Xscape, Mary J Blige, Whitney Houston & Lauryn Hill. New up to date artists I’d say; Drake, Sza, DJ Khaled & Jhene Aiko.

Q: Ok nice selection.

A: Thanks!

Q: Let’s talk about your music. Let’s talk about your new single ‘Shake it’ that has hit the airwaves a few months ago and it has been picking up steadily landing you appearances at different events & being interviewed on the various stations since our first sit down. What was the concept & inspiration behind the record ‘Shake It’.

A: The concept behind ‘Shake It’ was to just have fun. I really wanted anyone who heard the song to have a good time and get lost in the music. (Stream now on iTunes, Spotify, & Everywhere worldwide)

Q: What’s coming for next year starting out 2018?

A: You’ll get the release of my new EP entitled ‘Misfit’ coming January 2018.

Q: Ok, so that’s truly top of the year like next month. What are you bringing fans musically with this project?

A: Musically, I’m going to be sharing a lot of my ideas the way that I think. My fans will also get a taste of my signature that I’m bringing to the table when it comes to my writing style.

Q: What else is in the works for you artistically any acting roles or performances coming in 2018?

A: Yes, Actually in 2018 I will be performing at the Fashion Gala Awards in Orlando Fl. Acting wise I will be starring in a play with a feature role entitled ’12 Women in the same black dress’ also due out in January 2018.

Q: Wow you are on the roll entering 2018 with a bang!

A: Thank you (giggles)…

Q: Where can the public find you on social media to continue supporting you and everything you do?

A: You can find me on social media worldwide @denaejoi & for bookings send emails to Bookdenaejoi@gmail.com!
