The artist graciously shares details about “Covid Blues” in which she wrote during the lockdown period.
“Seeing so many people suffering during the lockdown gave me the urgency to write something that would encourage people.”
She explains that we should take advantage of technology that which facilitates communication, regardless of being on lockdown.
BOSSIIE’S visual for the single is funky and colorful, also motivated by the lockdown during COVID. It reflects the bright side of things.
“I did not want to create around the sadness that lockdown subjected us to,” BOSSIIE recalled.
The music video is the romance that kept the fire burning between lovers, in spite of the lockdown. A direct image of cheering people up, inspiring them to live like life goes on.
A few of the ladies of HypeFresh wants to know who the handsome man is in your video? BOSSIIE explains that he is a mutual friend. The director suggested a tall, handsome man—a dark skinned brother with great teeth and a beard that connects.
“He is super professional and a man of his word, shout out to my guy Ril,” she said.
Furthermore, BOSSIIE details her workout routine because her body is banging! She spends an hour walking and dancing every chance she gets. When it comes to the gym, she works out 3-4 times a week. In fact, most of her workouts consist of gym equipment, weights and cardio.
BOSSIIE’S background roots from South Africa although she was raised in the UK.
