With the single, “All Else Fails,” out now, we took some time to hear more from Que Believe. Read below to learn more about Que Believe, the story behind the single, and what’s to come.

Hi Que Believe! Let’s start with how did you get your artist name?

I was labeled QB by my friends in Florida because I’m originally from Queens Bridge, and when I started doing music, I took the letters from my nickname and tied it in with my story of being an underdog in the industry – hence Que believe.

What city are you from and where are you based now?

I’m originally from Queens, but I’m based out of Staten Island, NYC where I do all of my music in our own studio.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music? How did you get started?

It started off with poetry in elementary school, and it transpired into music when I got to my senior year of high school.

Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?

My upbringing has definitely impacted and influenced my music, and who I am because the hardships that I’ve faced provided me with the drive and material needed to stay creative.

How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?

I don’t necessarily have a specific sound as I grew up listening to pretty much everything, so if I had to describe it, it would be described as infectiously catchy music with a message that transcends genre. People around me say it’s ‘medicine for the soul’ type of music, so I implemented that in my Que Believe brand logo.

Do you have any hobbies outside of music? What do you do to stay creative?

I don’t have much hobbies outside of the music scene because I breathe, live, and dream musically.

Who are some of your main musical influences?

My main influences as of now are Bruno Mars, Anderson Paak, and The Weeknd, but my Hip-Hop influences that started it all for me were Slim Shady, Nas, Method Man, and Redman.

What are some of your future music career goals?

My goals are to have a number 1 charting album on Billboard, win a few Grammys, and working with some of my biggest influences.

Now onto your release, ‘All Else Fails.’ What inspired this song?

‘All Else Fails’ came to me in a dark time where  I was forced to choose between struggling doing it by the books, and taking risks in order to secure the bag and not be a statistic.

What is ‘All Else Fails’ about in your own words?

The average man becoming a risk taker with all that life brings his way.

How did the collaboration with Jadakiss come about?

A good friend of mine at the time (Efren Santana) had connections with Jadakiss’ camp and pitched it to them. Jadakiss heard the potential in the record and jumped on it out of love, and I’ve been greatly appreciative of that. So, salute to Jadakiss, man. Much love and respect. Not too many artists are like him – humble to work with underdog artists trying to get in the game like myself. It’s been a long Journey for me.

What message do you hope fans take away from your music and from ‘All Else Fails?’

When all else fails, don’t lose hope and strive for greatness.

What’s one of the proudest moments of your music career so far?

Completing my first project (In Que Believe EP), which is officially being released this summer. Stay tuned for the date, which will be posted on my website and pre-released on there.

What would you say are the greatest lessons that you’ve learned so far?

Stay humble, believe In yourself/your potential, and always remain a student to everything that you do in life.

What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects, or do you have any upcoming shows that we should be on the lookout for?

Right now, I will be doing a lot of media coverage across the U.S. for my first project, In Que Believe EP, which has six of my favorite songs from my catalog that I built over my years of music. Eventually, I will be doing shows, which also will be posted on my website, quebelievemusic.com, and I’m also working on putting together my first full album now. This EP is just a sample of what I’m bringing for you all, so I hope that you enjoy it.

Get Ready to Groove with Lonely Leonard’s New Album ‘BLOCKBUSTER’!

Published

Hold onto your headphones, because Lonely Leonard is here to shake up your playlists with his electrifying debut album, ‘BLOCKBUSTER’! This Phoenix-based rapper isn’t just any artist—he’s a former porn director turned hip-hop sensation, bringing his wild, unconventional experiences straight to your ears.

‘BLOCKBUSTER’ is a 12-track rollercoaster ride through the realms of drill, EDM, and jersey club. Leonard pulls out all the stops, delivering catchy hooks and provocative raps that are guaranteed to get stuck in your head. He describes the album as “like watching a 3D movie without the glasses on”—a trippy, vibrant mix of genres and themes that paints a vivid picture of the ups and downs of fame.

Leading the charge is “I Did It”, an anthem for New Jersey that showcases Leonard’s swagger and his ability to slay a jersey club beat. Inspired by legends like Eminem, BandmanRill, and Travis Scott, Leonard mixes their powerful vibes with his own unique style. The result? A banger that’s impossible to ignore.

But wait, there’s more! the artist isn’t just making music; he’s making a difference. A portion of the profits from his merchandise sales will be donated to the AZ Access to Abortion Fund, proving that he’s got a big heart to match his big talent.

Lonely Leonard’s journey is just as impressive as his music. He records with Killroy, the mastermind behind tracks for Snoop Dogg, and gets engineering help from Fritzthaproducer, known for working with Pop Smoke. His music has already caught the attention of big names like Ebro from Apple Music and Rick Ross, setting the stage for Leonard’s meteoric rise.

So, plug in, turn up the volume, and let Lonely Leonard take you on a wild ride through his mind. This is one blockbuster you won’t want to miss!
