Pop artist B. Howard Discusses New Single ‘Nite and Day 3.0/Girl You Gotta Know’
Multi-talented pop singer, composer, and producer, B. Howard recently released his new single “Nite and Day 3.0/Girl You Gotta Know” and its fire. Reminiscent of a classic pop persona, B. Howard reveals his mainstream roots while integrating a progressive tone.
Most of my music has been phased in the dance, crossover and global. It has a tempo and kind of a R&B swag to it. – B. Howard
Howard’s career as a singer, songwriter, producer started when he appeared on Ginuwine’s 2003 single “Love You More” which reached #23 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. This led to a string of hits and collaborations with artists like Ne-Yo, Kevin Lytle, Brook Valentine, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Dru Hill, Marques Houston, Lupe Fiasco, and Vanessa Hudgens.
Recently The Hype magazine got a chance to catch up with B. Howard to talk about his new single “Nite and Day 3.0/Girl You Gotta Know,” his new tour dates, and a few projects he is working on including his acting debut this year in the Lifetime film, “Tales of Two Corey’s.” Make sure to check out his new single and add him to your play list because the “Prince of Pop” is popping and is a great addition to add to your playlist.
You have a new single called “Nite and Day 3.0/ Girl You Gotta Know,” what can you tell me about it?
“Nite and Day” was a song that was originally made in the 80s style. Thinking back, I wanted to create something that was not too farfetched but also gives you that urban feel. I’m very thankful for the love it has been receiving.
You expecting the response you got from “Nite and Day”?
I didn’t know what to expect actually. Most of my music has been phased in the dance, crossover and global. It has a tempo and kind of a R&B swag to it. It’s different than what I’ve done for myself. I’m really surprised and grateful for the response!
What’s the different between your music now and when you dropped your album Genesis in 2010?
I’d have to say the growth in my artistry. When I created Genesis, I was touring Japan and that was a big experience and effected my music in a way. It is the evolution or growth as an artist.
You have the title “Prince of Pop” how did you get that title?
When I did my first release in Tokyo they dubbed me “Prince of Pop.” I felt like it’s a proud title to hold considering the “King of Pop” before me. I kind of prefer the other title people have for me. Some people call me “Mr. President” and I think I like that one better!
You are doing some acting too?
It was my first day in my Lifetime movie “A Tale Two Corey’s.” It was a good experience. I really want to play the bad guy or something like that or a villain in a cartoon that’s coming out at the end of the year with me as an assassin. I play music during the day and I’m an assassin at night.
Is there anything you want your fans to know about your music?
Keep a look out for my new stuff! Thanks for the support for “Nite and Day” and there is so much more coming! I’m just thankful it happened.
