With credits under his belt for the likes of Chris Brown, Ella Mai, Usher, and many more, multi-platinum artist and songwriter Vedo stopped through the Power 106 Studios to discuss his latest musical offering “Yesterday.”
Speaking with Power Mornings co-hosts Teddy Mora and Melissa Rios, “The Voice” alum has had a breakout story since leaving the hit reality television competition series. As Vedo has worked as a songwriter throughout most of his career, it took some convincing from his manager to offer up his skills to other artists because much of is his written work was always personal to him. Now that Vedo has found his own footing again, as an artist, father, and songwriter, the singer details his gratitude for success through advice he received from his father.
During the novel 2020 coronavirus pandemic, Vedo’s “You Got It” became an instant viral hit, and while the songwriter admits that he doesn’t particularly go into a writing session to “make songs for Tik Tok,” he shares that there has to be some element to a catchy song for everyone to be able to pick up on for social media use.
Vedo goes on to share why he believes the sound of R&B is different in this current generation, shares the first song he remembers writing when he was just 12-years-old, names his Top 5 R&B singers list, and much more.
