R&B sensation Wish is back to treat the world with her voice, charisma, and fashion. With the release of her “Me Against Her” mixtape releasing on August 7, Wish is sure to deliver another memorable piece of work. During our interview, Wish talks about the concept behind “Me Against Her,” musical influences for the first single “Used To Love You,” and when she discovered her passion for music.
Wish explains the meaning of the title “Me Against Her” …
The title, “Me Against Her,” is based off of comparisons. I have been compared to so many people throughout music that it can be a compliment and a nuisance. Individuality is what I am all about especially when it comes to music.
Wish speaks on the influences for the first single from “Me Against Her,” “Used To Love You”
I was influenced by 90’s rhythm and blues from artist like Destiny’s Child, Brandy, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, and Aaliyah. Aaliyah definitely proved the way for a lot of African-American musicians of this generation. I’ve been heavily influenced by Chaka Khan and Cee-Lo Green as well.
Wish shares more details about her “Me Against Her” mixtape…
“Me Against Her” is more rhythm and blues compared to “The WishTape” that was just all over the place, musically. “Me Against Her” is inspired by life experiences from break-ups, being a loner in school, and being teased for not being as popular.
Producers on this mixtape that I worked with are all up and coming producers. Some I have worked with before on other projects like Bridgetown and Luke Witherspoon.
Wish first learns singing is her calling…
I actually started singing in the church in Baltimore, Maryland. I was about seven years old and was given a solo to sing. I got so nervous I screwed up that I realized that singing is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
