BY SYLVIE BARNETT:

Recently aspiring Philadelphia, PA based R&B and hip-hop solo artist GoldenLord dropped his music video for “LIGHTBEAMS”. Linking with rapper Keyz2thagame, GoldenLord delivers excellent vocal production and fresh R&B and hip-hop influenced beats. The music video for “LIGHTBEAMS” tells the narrative about a young man who has hit a creative roadblock. The music video depicts a dream sequence through beautifully shot cinematography. When waking up from this enlightening experience, the young man finds his colorful piece of animated artwork influenced by the characters in his dream already being fully completed. The music video and song are a metaphor for enlightenment and how we can use our experiences for creative inspiration. Rick Dixon, famous for his work with The Black Eyed Peas on their track “Where Is The Love?”, engineered “LIGHTBEAMS”. “LIGHTBEAMS” will be featured on GoldenLord‘s forthcoming album release The Voyager, due out in 2018.

We had the opportunity to catch up with GoldenLord in support of his recent music video release. Please see below for our exclusive behind the scenes interview.

Q: How did you come up with the name Goldenlord?
A: I was beating all of my friends in NBA 2K. I was hitting all of my shots, so I started calling myself
Goldenlord because everything was Golden.
Q: What draws you to the styles of music that you find yourself making right now?
A: My struggle. My climb. I speak from pain . . . a real place.
Q: What inspired you to create the music video for Lightbeams? What do you want people to get from
the video?
A: I wanted to do something different…create something supernatural. I didn’t want to do something
simple that people would see coming. I also wanted to glorify the beauty in women and present them in
a positive light. I didn’t want the stigma placed on these women that we see a lot in videos today with
women twerking. My goal was for women to be seen in a light that conveys their place in the universe.
I want people to just be inspired and have the confidence to step outside of the box.
Q: What is your favorite record out right now? What are your top 5 favorite records all-time?
A: My favorite record out right now…Bad and Boujee. My top 5 favorite all time: At #5 Wu-Tang’s
“Triumph”, #4 Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison, At #3 Michael Jackson “Remember the Time”, #2
Star Man by David Bowie is fire as shit! #1 would be Partyman by Prince.
Q: What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
A: Be patient with this music shit.
Q: What can be expected from you the rest of 2017 and beyond?
A: Greatness. Legendary. Iconic. Fucking Epic!
