Song of the Day: Blue Dot – Quincy

Quincy Blue dot

Today’s song is coming from an unsigned American R&B singer/songwriter/rapper Quincy Taylor Brown -aka QUINCY –  named after his godfather, the legendary Quincy Jones.

Born in New York and was raised in Georgia, he’s  the son of 80’s R&B singer, Al B.Sure and the adopted son of music and fashion mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs . Being the son of a singer and growing up surrounded by different artists, QUINCY was naturally expected to follow in his father’s footsteps. Instead, he decided to try his hand at rapping and released the song Da Fly Way ft Yung Joc in 2008.

It wasn’t until his late grandmother told him “you have a voice” and that he “needed to sing” that he decided to pursue singing. In The Harbor TV interview, he stated that it took him a while to pursue the singing because he was scared to let someone hear his voice because he wasn’t even comfortable with himself. He also stated in interviews that his biggest musical influences are Biggie, Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Luther Vandross. QUINCY‘s sound is a mix of Al B. Sure with a hint of Drake.

Between 2009-2014, he released his mixtape Nothing Special as well as songs, Voicemail and Stay Awhile ft Kendre which appeared on BET’s 106 & Park. In December 2014 he released his track, Friends First ft French Montana, which was premiered on SKEETV and Power 106, became his second most successful song to date.

The free rap track titled Blue Dot (ft electric guitarist, Xeryus Gittens) was released in April, in which he talks about “topping off the night” with his dad’s widely popular Ciroc vodka. His latest effort is a change of pace from his other songs because of the electric guitar infusion. This upriser is currently working on his debut album (release date TBA) and planning to go on tour.
