I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Chicagoan and newly-signed Jive records artist, John Blu. When we had the Chicago Hip Hop Connects Showcase at the beginning of the summer, Da Internz told me he would be the next one to blow up so it was a pleasure to talk with him and find out what he's all about. We talked about the breakout single "In Love Wit Yo Booty", working with those Internz, and much more below!


GWHH: How has life changed since signing with Jive records?

JB: It has been a dream come not only to get my music out here in Chicago but nationally and that's what I prayed to God for...

GWHH: Did you envision "In Love Wit Yo Booty" to be a breakout hit?

JB:Definitely, definitely... I actually called in from my day job to finish that record but I did envision it to be a hit.

GWHH: What was it like working with the Da Internz and Will from Day 26?

JB: Da Internz and I have actually been rockin together since high school maybe 8th grade. Working with Will from Day 26 was a good experience as well. He called me and said I need you to produce a song for my mixtape so that was a good look.

GWHH: Who would you want to work with in the future?

JB:Everybody! Pop music, rock, R&B, gospel... anyone who is serious about their craft and trying to make hits.

GWHH: Since you write, compose, and produce your own music, do you always feel like you are the director?

JB: Definitely... It is always a big plus in my book. It is a good look that I can produce, sing, and do all that. I feel I have been blessed with an ear for music. I feel I can tell what is a hit and not a hit. I feel it is an advantage not just for myself but for others.

GWHH: What can we expect from you in the future?

JB:I have my second single ready to drop end of this month. "Rosetta Stone" is out right now featuring Young Ghost. We actually finished shooting the video so check that out. We have some upcoming shows. Black Women's Expo at McCormick place on the 8th, SOP's in Peoria IL on the 12th, and shows coming up in Tampa and Orlando on the 28th and 29th of August.

GWHH: Lastly, where can we find you online?

JB: JohnBlu.com,
@JohnBlu on Twitter, 
and Facebook.com/OfficialJohnBlu.

GWHH: Anything else you would like to add?

JB: I would like to thank GOD for the gift. Without him none of this would be possible. Special thanks to AAU, Management and PR Team!!!! (TEAM WORK MAKE THE DREAM WORK). All the clubs, DJ's, radio stations and most importantly the fans, I want to say without you I cannot be the R&B Bully.
