Producer Bongo By The Way Lands Three New Hits with Teyana Taylor & Pop Smoke Featuring Tyga & Quavo

Bongo By The Way has been the go-to producer for the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B for years, with a discography of cutting-edge tracks for the likes of Roddy Ricch, Nipsey Hussle, Jeremih, Eric Bellinger, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dolla $ign, Snoop Dogg, Future and many more. Now in the summer of 2020, Bongo hasn’t let any of the world’s challenges slow his grind as he continues to produce hits, most recently for Teyana Taylor’s The Album and Pop Smoke’s posthumous Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.
As an expert instrumentalist who plays piano, bass and drums, the organic sounds he created for Taylor’s “Lose Each Other” and Pop Smoke’s “West Coast Sh*t” provide the perfect layered backdrop to their iconic vocals. Meanwhile the slow and sultry soundscapes of “69” showcase Bongo By The Way’s expertise with sound engineering as well, as a loop inspired by Australia’s Hiatus Kaiyote sets the vibe for 2020’s sexiest song.
Bongo By The Way has never been one to pursue fame over skill, but his creations for these two stellar albums shine a light on his talent as he delivers hits alongside Kanye West and DJ Mustard. Bongo’s ability to merge his masterful use of technology with the musicality of an artist who grew up playing instruments has made him the ideal producer, and as he’s explained, that marriage of both abilities is completely intentional:
“I grew up appreciating organic sounds. I played in the church, I grew up listening to Erykah Badu and The Roots, people that really have that feel of the instrumentation. But at the same time, I do appreciate the nuances of technology because they allow you to express yourself in a new way and have different soundscapes that are cutting edge.”

The T-Quest Show: Serena Deena Interview

International Superstar is what comes to mind when I think of Serena Deena. She is a star that is shining! Having the pleasure of interviewing her, hearing how professional she is, down to earth, loving caring, hard working and hearing her awesome music was so epic. Her style of music is unique and I could see her on the charts soon.

Serena Deena

As I write this article I’m smiling because I’m happy I was introduced to Serena Deena. As soon as she called into my radio show, I knew in the first moment that we were going to have a great conversation. Not sure who to give the credit to, whether it was her upbringing or artist development but her professionalism and the way she spoke impressed me. She conducted herself very well in the interview. As we began to have more of a conversation, I was intrigued by many experiences she mentioned. Serena is what I call an all around entertainer.

Yes, she does music but she is also a dancer & a writer. She’s down to earth, she lives life and what she feels is what she displays in her music. During the interview we played and we spoke upon her two singles entitled Dirty & Palm. As the music was playing, I was getting contacted by the listener eager to learn where they can hear more of her music. That’s exactly the type of responses you want to get from new potential fans. Serena was even open to collaborating with me on a song which shows she’s down to create magic with others.

Not only is be easy on the eye but she has a beautiful spirit as well. Please make sure you support by streaming her music & keeping up with her on your social media as well as her website which is displayed. She’s a star that’s definitely shining!
