Forres, the rising musical sensation hailing from Brooklyn, New York, but with roots in Haiti, is taking the music industry by storm. His latest release, “Vacant,” has made waves by charting at #21 on iTunes, and he’s poised for even greater success in the future.
Forres’s journey into the world of music began in his early years while growing up in Haiti. He credits his father, who introduced him to iconic artists like Michael Jackson and Prince, as his initial inspiration. These early musical influences set the stage for what would become a flourishing career in music.
When asked about his creative process, Forres explained that it often starts with playing beats and letting the music guide his thoughts. “Usually, I’ll play some beats, and the songs will just come to me,” he says. “I’ll freestyle, then write whatever came out of the freestyle and make it a full song.”
Forres draws inspiration from a diverse range of artists, with Jimmy Hendrix, A$AP Rocky, and Kanye West standing out as his biggest influences. Their innovative approaches to music have encouraged him to be more experimental in his own work.
“Vacant,” his latest hit, emerged during a late-night session when inspiration struck. “I was just scrolling through some beats around 2-3 am and started writing about my journey as an artist,” Forres shares. “It’s about how sometimes you feel vacant and not supported through the process of coming up, but once you make it, everyone loves you.”
One of Forres’s standout qualities is his electrifying stage presence. Whether performing in front of 10 or 100 people, he gives it his all, making sure everyone has a blast and feels the music through his performance. He even goes the extra mile by organizing giveaways to reward his dedicated audience.
Forres reflects on his most monumental moments in his career so far, highlighting hitting 100k views on his new single “Vacant” and the thrill of performing in front of an enthusiastic crowd at the Joint in Miami.
However, the journey in the music industry is far from easy. Forres acknowledges the obstacles, from struggling with ticket sales to facing times when he lacked support from friends and family. Yet, his passion for the process and love for making music continue to motivate him.
“I just really love the process, and I wouldn’t see myself not making music,” Forres says. “That right there is just enough to always motivate me.”
For aspiring musicians, Forres offers this advice: “Focus on building the best sound and improving your artistry. Remember, this is a lifelong journey, not just a hobby. With enough work and dedication, you will be successful.”
He also predicts a shift in the hip-hop genre, saying, “I think hip-hop has become very saturated, and I feel like it will start to head towards a more alternative realm as people start to look for something new.”
Forres is all about building a core audience while experimenting with new sounds and refining his skills. With nearly two albums’ worth of music in the vault and his recent EP, “Alter Ego,” he promises fans some exciting new tunes soon.
Ultimately, Forres hopes his music resonates with listeners, bringing them happiness, empowerment, and motivation. “I hope that listeners can relate to me and just be happy or feel like the man for real when they listen to my music,” he says.
As Forres continues to break barriers and captivate audiences, he invites you to join the journey. With a slew of unreleased tracks and his unwavering dedication, the Forres mob is gearing up for greatness, and it’s time for the world to take notice.
