SAMMY ADAMS – EXCLUSIVE JUSTJARED.COM INTERVIEW
JJ: Hey Sammy! Loving your music so far. How would you describe your sound?
SA: I would say it’s a new kind of pop sound.
JJ: What makes it stand out?
SA: It has very big hooks mixed with pop, hip-hop, rap, and a little R&B and reggae. It also has more of an electronic vibe, [compared to] other rappers.
JJ: Can you tell us about your song “Only One”?
SA: Yes, I wrote it about six or seven months ago. It’s sort of designed to make everyone that hears it feel important.
JJ: What are the lyrics about?
SA: It’s a story about a guy trying to get a girl. It’s sort of a romantic pop song. The song has a great tempo – it’s really fast and has a lot of guitars and cool sounds in it. [The lyrics] sort of have like a modern Romeo and Juliet feel.
JJ: We’re sure girls are lovin’ it. Was the song inspired by anyone special?
SA: No, not really. I mean I didn’t like write it about my girl. It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing.
JJ: Growing up, did you always want to get into the music industry?
SA: I did, I just didn’t know how it worked.
JJ: Well, all of your hard work is paying off, and now you’re working on your second album! What can fans expect to hear on it?
SA: A lot. In the new album I go back to my roots. It’s kind of got poppy, upbeat feel-good music, which is the type of music I like to listen to.
JJ: How have you changed as a musician while working on this album?
I’ve been able to grow and become a better writer, singer, rapper, and producer [while working on this album]. It was amazing to get to work with Pharrell and G Major because they have a lot of experience. It’s been very cool.
JJ: During one of your recent concerts, a fan climbed up on stage and proposed to his girlfriend! Did that surprise you?
SA: Actually, he hit me up on Twitter and I was like, ‘Yeah, that’d be really cool!’ Then we just strategically planned it. So it didn’t surprise me, I was just praying that she’d say yes. It was really, really cool.
JJ: That’s so crazy! Do you ever do over-the-top things for a girl you like?
SA: I do like subtle, sneaky things.
JJ: Are you obsessed with any songs right now?
SA: Yeah, “Over My Dead Body” by Drake.
JJ: Can you tell us three fun facts about yourself?
SA: Hmmm… I sleep talk, I sleep walk, and I’m very energetic!
