Bobby V - What’s Going On

Tags: Bobby V
Producer:
Bobby V & Bill Jabr
Album:
Come With Me EP

Several weeks ago, DJ Booth exclusively revealed that Bobby V had left his recording contract at DTP and Def Jam.  Instead of waiting around for a new recording contract to pop up, the Atlanta-born crooner has gone the independent route and will release his next two projects without the pressure of major label demands or radio-play politics.  As apart of his “appetizer,” a six-song EP entitled Come With Me, V has redone the classic Marvin Gaye song, What’s Going On.  “I feel like a lot of artists really are not talkin’ about the issues,” says V.  Over a simple acoustic guitar, courtesy of co-producer Bill Jabr, the singer discusses the problems plaguing today’s society.  Interestingly enough, the downward spiral of the music industry wasn’t among them.
