American singer-rapper Sky Blu talks about flying solo after LMFAO split, his forthcoming album, Indian music and more in a freewheeling interview
Q. What do you like the most about working solo?
A. Having made music for a long time now, I started looking at all this music and saying, “Wow, this is really a piece of me. How am I going to wrap this up and give it to the world in the best way?” The music is definitely going to be different. I want to win Grammies as a solo artiste… and a lot of them!
Q. Tell us about your forthcoming album?
A. I want people to know that Sky Blu is coming, and I’m going to make a big impact. There are many surprises in store! It’s an eight-song album that shows my diversity. I have fun songs and edgier music too. Songs like “Shine” and “Imagination” focus on my philosophical side, which isn’t known to many.
Q. Why did LMFAO split?
A. I’m just making new music. That’s not to say we’re not making new music with LMFAO, it’s just that LMFAO is taking a chill pill for a moment. We might get back.
Q. Have your heard any Indian music or musicians?
A. I love all types of music, especially Bollywood tunes. I’ve heard of AR Rahman and Yo Yo Honey Singh.
