An Exclusive Conversation with Nate Adamz on his New Track “You & I”
WHAT IS THE SONG ABOUT?
“You & I” is a song about a two people who are falling in love with each other. Although, the girl is very skeptical of putting herself in another relationship because she doesn’t want to get hurt. The guy on the other hand is trying to prove to her that he’s gonna take care of her & he’s got her back through it all.
HOW DOES THIS PARTICULAR SONG FIT INTO YOUR UPCOMING ALBUM?
So, for my album, there’s gonna be a backstory that occurs on songs #3, #6 & #9. The first song is “You & I” & then the story will continue on songs #6 & #9. I can’t really get into much about that… But I will say that the vibe of this song fits the album perfectly. Asaiah Ziv did a great job on the production.
WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME & ARTWORK FOR YOUR NEW ALBUM?
The story behind the name is that one night, I was up really late praying that God would show me something for the album. You see, I had already had my mind set on the name, concept, storyline, cover art, & everything so I wasn’t really planning on changing it at all. Well, then, I fell asleep & I had a dream & in my dream, there was writing on a black wall that said “Yourz Truly”. So, I immediately woke up & grabbed my phone & typed those two words into my phone. So yeah, that’s how the name of the album came to be. The cover art, on the other hand, was a little more difficult. I had a few different designer sketch up stuff for me but it wasn’t really what I was looking for. Then one day, I had my manager take a picture of me standing in front of this blue curtain. So, I sent the picture to Fvmeless & he said he had a really dope idea for it. Then, about 4 or 5 days later, he sent me the picture of the first cover art idea & it’s all history from there.
WHO WILL BE FEATURED ON THE ALBUM?
There’s not gonna be too many features on the album since it’s a very personal project. I actually don’t have any rap features on there. There are a few singers that made a placement though. Rashon J, obviously & Preston 2.0 did a hook for me. Cameron Blue is spotted all throughout the album. Although not too many artists, I do have a lot of producers on there. I got a few tracks from Ziv, a few from Fvmeless & Jeff Cabreja. Santhosh did his thing on the intro too. There’s more than that but I don’t wanna say too much.
