HHW: We hear that you are making some great music with your new album Peach Moon, so tell us a little bit about it?
BOBBY V: Well Peach Moon is an album where although I’ve been giving people good music, this came during a time of change. I wanted to switch it up a little bit. I’ve been performing with my band a lot. I’ve been taking piano lessons. Ever since then I have wanted to be a part of the band. In taking piano lessons I wanted to give my new music the band feel. This is something no R&B guy is doing, it’s very different. This is something that is music for the soul. In the past I was always tryna chase a radio hit record. Now I want to give the people something that will last forever. I don’t feel like people are doing that right now. People are saying whatever, not really enlightening people, and making music just to party. There is nothing wrong with that, but I feel I am at a point in my career where I can touch lives with my music. Whether it makes it to the radio or not, I wanna make my music for a live show. Peach Moon is full of live instrumentation. I love this album because it shows growth.
HHW: What changed in you, to want to make some changes in your music?
BOBBY V: I had a carjacking incident earlier this year. I was held at gunpoint for my car. After that situation a couple of other things happened and I looked back on the music I had given people. While I really love the music that I have done, I feel like if I would have died at that moment I hadn’t left the world being touched by my music. After all that I wanted to do something different from before. I don’t wanna chase the radio.
HHW: Do you have one offer on the table or are you looking at a couple of labels?
BOBBY V: We have a couple labels- actually three labels that we are having talks with. I have always have had interest in major labels, but because I have always had independent money and so it kept me putting music out on my own. Now I am sitting back, weighing my options and being free with my music. At the end of the day I am doing what I love to do. Now I can make music for your soul.
HHW: So we heard about this sex tape, what is going on with that?
BOBBY V: A young lady was at my house, I guess she went through my computer and sent the sex tape to herself. I’m not sure if that will ever get out. I think she was mad at me about something and sent it in to TMZ. You know sometimes women do things out of spite. I’m doing everything in my power for it not to be released because that is not the type of person I am. I would never mean for a sex tape to get out there. I come from a good family, a Godly home. I grew up with my mother, father, and sister. That’s not a good look for me because that is not who I am.
HHW: What can we expect from Bobby V in the future?
BOBBY V: I want my music to continue to grow and to grow and to grow… and to grow into people. I call myself the Vitamin V- I am that Vitamin that either you are missing or what you need. But it’s all good. I feel like a lot of people sleep on me and my music but if they really listen to it they are gonna be like ‘Damn, I’ve been sleeping on this by for a long time’ but they are gonna feel it.
