Artist/Songwriter & Dreamer, Drew Smith released his new single “Wanna Be”. The track is produced by Kevin Mayfield formerly known as Hothandz. The bass heavy track, “Wanna Be” is a hip hop anthem for declaring your freedom, “I had to be free…You don’t be knowing the power inside you”. “Wanna Be” is an escape from constantly being told what you have to be, to being the person you simply want to be. The track contains a thought provoking and catchy hook with lines, “Mama always told me what I had to be be, Homies only showed me what I shouldn’t be, Daddy never showed me”. This is a track that we can all relate to whether it’s dealing with consistent doubt or pressures to be something other than ourselves, “You can whisper around the haters, as they never wanna see ya make it.”
Drew is a profound individual whether it’s growing up and “feeling” the lyrics to the r&b tracks that his mother would play including Tina Marie and Mariah Carey to his mom being his biggest influence. It was his mother’s push for him to sing in choirs and to rehearse relentlessly that gave Drew his drive. It was that drive and work ethic which aided Drew in finding his passion, music.
