We sat down to talk with Johnny Blanko about his upcoming release "From the Back".
What was your inspiration behind your new single?
I always make a lot of street songs and I was looking into a lot of R&B too. I need to make something for women because what I learned was what women like, the men would like because of the women because they are trying to impress the women. That is how that came.
How long have you been working on this single?
I have been working on this roughly for two and a half years. I had it and always listened to it. I felt like it was not ready yet.
Did Covid-19 have any effect on the progression of the song?
Yes, it did. Once Covid-19 hit, I could not find any studio.
Did you work with anyone else on this project?
This was independent, it was me solo. One of my friends had originally made the beat. At one point I was going to add another artist on there, but this time I said that this song in particular should be more about me.
What would you like your listeners to get out of this single?
I’d say more like love music, intimacy with their love ones and inspiration for men as well.
What else can we expect from you in 2021?
I am working on four different albums right now. I figured if I put four albums out, that gives me a lot of time to show everybody my visions.
Is there anything else you would like to share with your fans regarding “From the Back”?
Once it dropped, I hope everybody likes it. It took a lot to put out, so I really put my heart into it. It is from experience, which is what made me make it as well. I just hope everybody can vibe with it like I did. I hope everybody loves it the way I do.
"From the Back" available on all streaming platforms March 19th!
