Brockhampton takes the cake for biggest boy band we’ve ever had in the Power 106 studio. They talked about the inspiration behind their latest album ‘Ginger’ and what’s next for them.
As far as being defined as a boy band, Brockhampton says they’re owning it! “I think that it’s important to you know, claim that term ‘boy band’ because you know, boy bands don’t look like this. It would be dope to live in a world where you know 5-10 years from now I could look and see groups of individuals dressed like this coming from any walk of life and they could claim whatever space they want in the music world and I hope that we can set a precedent for that.” They also said they just really have to right to define themselves and also RE-define.
How did we get here today Nick asks? They’re a group but they’re also a movement. The real truth is, the guys are big Kanye fans and met on a Kanye West forum. Crazy!
Speaking of crazy, their album Ginger is going crazy, on the charts that is! Nick jokes that he’s heard people saying they make Christian music but the guys said they most definitely pulled their inspiration for the project from Gospel music.
