SPECIALGIFT: Hey love, it's a pleasure to sit down with you again.
NEEKA J: Thanks!! I appreciate the opportunity to be here!
SPECIALGIFT: It's been over a year since we've met at Elegant Hoodness Musical Program NYC Annual Park Tour 2010. Elaborate some on your transition from that time till now.
NEEKA J: I've grown alot as an artist in the past year. I've been working on more material, some outside my usual element, doing shows across NYC and just enjoying life!!
SPECIALGIFT: You recently did a Power 105.1 showcase? Tell us about that?
NEEKA J: The venue was held at Times Square Arts Center, which was exciting all by itself!!!! At the event I met Ms. Maria Davis, R&B group Allure, June Balloon and a host of others within the industry. They enjoyed my show and it was a great experience to be apart of. Shout out to Curt Flirt and DJ Whutevva.
SPECIALGIFT: "Don't Save 'em" , wow how did that title come about? Tell us about the creation of this track.
NEEKA J: Lol, Don't Save 'em is a song expressed from personal experience as well as stories I hear from females and guys all the time. We love someone who doesn't love us back!!! Instead of walking away and taking a loss, we tend to stay around and stick through the hurt, pain, and disrespect to eventually become bitter. Lots of time is wasted and some get upset with the "other person" instead of checking your own boo!! Gotta move em up and out and Keep it moving!!! Before u live life you gotta love yourself. Don't Save 'em!! Like Usher said "Let it burn!!"
SPECIALGIFT: What's next for Neeka J?
NEEKA J: I'm looking forward to an album release!!! I've been working hard and fans have been patiently waiting. I think its time!
SPECIALGIFT: Anything you would like to express at this time? Maybe something you want the readers and fans to remember when they hear Neeka J.
NEEKA J: Love is everything! Money is not!! Love yourself, work hard, play harder!
SPECIALGIFT: Where do we find more of Neeka J music?
NEEKA J: I have a couple free downloads posted on www.twitter.com/NeekaJ_MusiQ. You can also find a couple performance videos on www.youtube.com/NeekaJthetruth One video is of the 6th year anniversary of EHMP!
