Danny Polo – Prada [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Sultry, Groovy, Fresh

Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the story behind it?

Prada is one of my favorite tracks I have ever done and it was a bit of an accident. Cube, one of my music buddies, sent me this four bar loop and I just looped it and sang some lines over it before going to sleep. I had just started seeing this girl and it was the most excited I had been about getting to know someone new in a while so I wrote about how I would act if i had everything in the world to give to her. I woke up after and then realized that I absolutely loved it. I then sent it over to Landon and he immediately said he wanted to put a verse on it and it was all so simple and straightforward that it was hilarious.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

One of my favorite lyrics that I’ve written is pretty simple. It’s from a demo I released last year called glitter and I simply said “i should’ve warned you not to lay up with me, everything that I touch bleeds”. I perfectly described how i was feeling and it sticks with me.

Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?

At the top of that list are Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder, and Anderson Paak. I also am so incredibly inspired by artists like mac ayers and tom misch.

Prada’s groove is splendid. Tell us a song with a groove you wish you had composed yourself.

Whats the use by mac miller will forever be a song i look to when I’m trying to find something smooth and groovy. It is honestly the pinacle of simple and tasteful.

In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?

This song in particular I love to imagine people listening to with the homies while they are cooking out and enjoying life.

When was the last time you danced?

literally last night. all i do is work and twerk.

Thank you!
