R&B Artist Contagiou$ came out of nowhere, and it looks like he is here to stay! We got to sit with the homie to understand his musical inspiration.
What does it take for someone to have the kind of success you have?
It takes for 1 person to say YES and for you to go after what you love and to not be afraid.
Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back.
Can you tell us why you think people are less likely to be successful when they lack passion for what they do?
I think people are less likely to be successful when they lack passion in what they do because they don’t take it seriously or lose focus or have too many distractions around them. They don’t study their craft.
Also, they hold back and fear the unknown, they are waiting for things to just happen but it takes you to put in the work and get out of your comfort zone and apply the pressure.
Can you explain how your passion for what you do helped push your brand to the limelight?
My passion has been music and being an entertainer and being able to sing and share my story.
What helped me push my name, was my authentic vocal sound, I learned this by studying the greats.
Taking myself places that were out of my comfort zone.
I had to prepare myself for the NO’s and keep pushing no matter what till I finally got that YES!
Are there any tips you have for people who are worried that their musical passions may not be profitable or cared for?
The biggest tip I have for anyone is to believe in yourself. Find a couple of good people to support you because support is free. And also have faith and pray and don’t be afraid to take that first step.
Have people ever referred to you as a self-made success? Would you say that that is true?
No one has ever told me or referred to me as self-made. I always worked hard for what I wanted and I also had help from certain people in my life that really held me down through my brightest days to my darkest of times.
When can your audience expect new music?
I’m currently working on a new EP set to be released in the first quarter of 2023. It’s my team’s intention for this next album to really set us apart from others in the industry!
