LV is next to pop off – stand with her or stand back!
Ahead of her 2020 project release, The Hype Magazine got LV to weigh in on a few things!
From the outside looking in, who is the artist LV?
Lv is a young female artist who represents women as a whole. Strong, sexy, Independent, classy yet edgy and unapologetic. Through music she brings out the vulnerable, sensitive even sad emotions all the way to the bad bitch- don’t need a man for nothing vibes. She’s an all around entertainer and role model for women of all ages, and demographics.
What brought you to the entertainment industry, music specifically?
Music has been in my veins since birth. Not sure where it came from because no one in my family does music but it’s truly all I have ever wanted to do since I can remember. Even as a young child, when asked what I wanted to be when I grow up, the answer was always the same, a singer.
What excites you most about your career for 2020?
The past 16 months have been really dedicated to spending all day and night in the studio recording new music to really experiment with all different genres from pop, to EDM to hip hop to really see what lights the fire within, gets me truly excited when I hear it and makes me want to share it with others so they can feel the same. I’ve grown so much as an artist and as a writer as well over the past 5 years and I’m really proud of that growth so 2020 is about finally sharing it with the world and showing the world who I am, and sharing this music with them is exciting because I’ve been building for so long to get the recipe just right and I think it’s ready for the world to finally eat it up!
Tell us about your current/upcoming project!
Like I said, I have experimented with music of different genres because I just have such a broad love and ear for music in general it was always hard for me to put myself in a box and give myself one sound when I wanted to do it all. However, because of music politics and such I understand that it’s key to have one lane for my fans to identify and grab onto- so my new music is definitely geared for females to turn up to and make them feel empowered, nothing but club bangers and anthem type records!
For new listeners, what song of yours would you pick as an introduction to you as an artist?
Basically everything I’m releasing in 2020 starting with my first single featuring DDG “done wit it.” This record is a female anthem letting these boys know you don’t need them and you got your own back. It’s a vibe, it’s empowering and it’s super catchy.
Tell us a bit about your work and passions OUTSIDE of music…
Honestly music consumes my entire life but when I do have a spare moment I like to spend time with my two cats whom I’m obsessed with haha and I am also a bit of a degenerate blackjack player so you can probably catch me in the nearest casino from time to time as well 🤦🏽♀️
Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” aka WTF?! moment…
Umm I would say I’m a dare devil by default… if it’s risky I’m Interested. I’ve jumped off many cliffs, tried many extreme sports in places and countries I probably should’ve played it safe in lol but honestly I would say sky diving was the biggest WTF moment for me. You would think … skydiving? That’s elementary everyone does that and loves it right? Well that’s what I thought too before I did it. It was actually quite the opposite for me I literally boo-hoo cried the whole way down I didn’t enjoy it at all and it didn’t feel free or exhilarating for me either. The moment right before my tandem jumper launched us out of that plane I just felt this like overwhelming feeling of guilt for my mom like if I die right now what it would do to her that I just basically volunteered myself to die. So yeah I’ll never do that again lol.
