HOT New Music: Veronica V
Cash Money Records are proud to present their new R&B Princess, Veronica V with her debut single ‘What Happened To Us’ Featuring 2 Chainz.
Born Vanity Gardner, her passion for music began at the tender age of 5, with vivid memories of singing in the back of her mother's car. It wasn’t long before Veronica was enlisted into the church choir and began earning her stripes. By the age of 10, Veronica already recognized that her destiny would be in music. She began recording demos, which in time led to her performing at talent shows and in cover bands.
Whilst recording in a studio in Miami, the same studio where Cash Money recorded, the studio owner introduced Veronica to Slim and Baby.
‘I guess I was in the right place at the right time, says Veronica, and the rest is history’.
Hailing from Chicago (now a Miami resident), the talented singer-songwriter is no stranger to the music game. Having being blessed in the studio and already had the pleasure of working and recording with Mr Beatz, JRock, Danja, Timberland, Ammo, King, Soundz, Morris Brothers, Darkmatter, Bigg D, and RL from Next, it’s not hard to see that this Cash Money artist is in good stead and is set to make her mark in the industry.
She grew up listening to artists such as Roberta Flack, Donny Hathaway, Mint Condition, Beyonce, India Ire, along with one of her biggest musical influence, Stevie Wonder. Veronica describes herself as ‘sultry but powerful’ and through listening to these talented artists who have paved the way, she was able to nurtured a sound and style that is distinctively her own.
While happy to be compared to such heavyweights, as Brandy and Lauryn Hill, Veronica has certainly harnessed her own tone of voice and her own identity and she continues to develop and experiment with her own vocal abilities.
‘What Happened To Us’ produced by the talented ‘Polow Da Don’ (Usher, Chris Brown, T.I., Rihanna, Christina Aguilera just to name a few), will be the first single as a Cash Money artist.
Veronica says "Polow wanted to give me a different type of swag, something feminine, something sexy and something that was authentically raw. So, I took his lead and voila, the song was delivered."
The steamy HOT video was directed by, Collin Tilley, Slim and Jeff Panzer. The knowledge, experience and creative skills behind these 3 entities, bought the record to life!
It won’t be long before Veronica is touring the world and entertaining her fans. Her number one passion is music but her goals and ambitions don’t just stop there, she also sees herself modeling, acting and being a proactive campaigner for abused women and children. Veronica wants women all over the world to feel and identify with her……….the timid, the shy and the damn right bold.
Veronica is excited and looking forward to collaborating with more artists and releasing her music GLOBALLY. The album drops this summer and she confidently told us to expect: ‘Realness’, ‘Pain’, ‘Vulnerability’, ‘Struggle’ and ‘Triumph’. No doubt, Triumph being the ultimate goal.
HM says: We're loving this joint, is reminiscent of Truth Hurts' 'Addictive'. We're definitely keeping an eye on this HOT chick!! ★★★★
