Having worked tirelessly in the game to put himself on as an independent artist, Bellinger has solidified his confidence and power in his own lane. Speaking on his journey of finding success, the coveted singer-songwriter shares how his guided path was something that took many forms but he knew what he was destined to become.
Eric describes his biggest struggle came in varying ways as his desire to be number one pushed his earlier moments as an artist, to finding himself falling back to enjoy the fruits of his labor, to him deciding that he just didn’t want to be content with success but still wanted to put pressure on the industry as well as his craft. Bellinger recently got the opportunity to attend a Diddy-sponsored songwriting camp, which he details as a moment that he didn’t take for granted. After Diddy put out a call for all R&B gatekeepers, Eric says he “blacked out” during the writing camp because his passing and calling is to bring his talents forward through his creativity.
For Eric, new music will continue to pour out of him because he’s destined as an entertainer and his new project exemplifies the reenergized focus he has on his craft. He describes how he’s checked out from social media to deliver the best he can and he’s already dropped new singles “Shine On The World” and “Only Fan” as teasers.
Bellinger goes on to discuss who he believes is the King of R&B, how he’s competing with major label artists, and much more.
