soulhead: How did the group get formed?
Blushhh Music: The group was formed six years ago. The group started with two rappers looking for a vocalist. We went to Facebook to look for a singer! We found Tali on Facebook. We began bonding and doing showcases around the city! Five years later we stumbled upon a showcase at Music World Entertainment! We tried to give Mr. Knowles our cd and he actually threw it out the window!
Mr. Knowles gave us feedback about being unique and trendsetters and not being another Destiny’s Child. We performed an acapella for Mr. Knowles letting him hear two rappers and a vocalist and he loved the performance! We then signed with Mr. Knowles and was put through artist development! At the beginning of artist development, we had a group member change! We resorted back to social media and went to Instagram and hand picked Ms. Bunni Ray. Bunni Ray’s energy and chemistry meshed perfectly and she fit right in! We have now been in artist development for almost two years!

soulhead: Having someone as credible as Mathew Knowles backing you is huge, but is there any pressure that some might expect Blushhh to become an overnight success due to his previous successes?
Blushhh Music: In the words of Mr. Mathew Knowles ” there is no such thing as overnight success.” Blushhh Music has worked for years long and hard. Mr. Knowles prides him self in developing his artist such as Motown‘s Berry Gordy. We actually have gotten to experience the same bootcamp as Destiny’s Child. Artist development is key to artist longevity. We understand this takes patient and hard work and were prepared to do whatever it takes.
