If you’ve been tuning in to FOX for any of their new late night shows then you’ve probably stumbled upon ‘Empire.’ The show is about the music business and the drama behind it but what’s so great about this show far is the crazy good musical talent it showcases. Take V Bozeman. The first episode opened with her singing her heart out with her her single “What Is Love?” After hearing her sing about love we’re not sure we know what love is anymore. Her voice and lyrical messages makes you want to rethink a lot of things.
We instantly had to start searching for more information on Veronika and it dawned on us that we did in fact know who she was. Like us, you may have seen and heard her in ‘Til The End Of Time’ belting out soul melting melodies while standing face to face with Timothy Bloom. But that’s where it stopped. We lost track of this vocal wonder and it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that were were reminded of just how amazing she is an artist and woman.
On ‘Empire’, Bozeman plays Veronika, the very beautiful soul singing artist signed to Empire Records. As for her music, she just finished two albums last summer and will be releasing them both this year. “Music is My Boyfriend” drops this summer and an album with Timbaland and Opera Noire is slated for late February or early March.
Signed to Timbaland’s record label, she hooked him and us with her powerful ballad and visuals for “Race Jones.” It’s such serendipity that we’ve stumbled back upon V Bozeman at this important time in history for Black America. Written by Cee Lo, Bozeman says the song addresses “the spirit of what Black is,” and boy does it. The lyrics, her movement, the way her mouth moves and hangs on each word, the simple but stunning cinematography and her voice. The lyrics. Her voice. The lyrics. So amazingly beautiful. So much Black truth. “It’s time for us as a new generation of artists to start using the platforms that we fight so hard to get, to our advantage. We have to start using our voices to change the world; to fight against ignorance and most of all, hate. ‘Race Jones’ for me is a testament to this idea.” We agree with her and love her for standing in her being, raw truth and talent. We’re sitting at the table with our plates ready to be served. We see you V Bozeman and #YouAreBeautiful.
