V. Bozeman And Timothy Bloom Talk About "Christmas Time In The Black Hand Side"
The holiday EP brings a different perspective than the perfect fairytale portrayed in most of the major Christmas movies and TELEVISION specials.
It's December, which means it's officially the holiday season (beginning of course with JAY-Z birthday on the 4 of December). And if you're tired of hearing the same 10 christmas songs on repeat on the radio and in the stores, don't worry, because this year, two prodigious voices joined together to make a Christmas album that seems to reach the heart of the street.
The Bloom and Bozeman interview starts at 42:00. Check out the footage before de Quincey White talking about going to a bar-bar with Kendrick Lamar.
In an exclusive sitdown with DXLive, two-time Grammy award winner soul singer Timothy Bloom, and the actress/singer, V. Bozeman, spoke about how the Time of the Christmas Of The Black Hand came together and what it means.
"Me and Tim, we have been knowing each other for a long time. It all started with the song that has a lot of attention [so-called] 'Until The End Of Time,'" Bozeman said DXLive hosts Trent Clark, Jen Deleon and Jake Rohn. "Never did a follow-up so we thought a Christmas project would be good for the service of the fans and give another perspective on how we do Christmas as opposed to what you always see in the mainstream," she added.
Bloom detailed picture of how the conflicts of programming that initially prevented a collab album finally relented to allow the Christmas project. "[V] giving you now the politically correct version. There is a moment in time in CeeLo's spot and [V] was like, 'Let's do something" and I'm like, 'ok,'" recalled Bloom. "We were supposed to do a full project and have not had the opportunity, because of schedules and things like that, so she hit me again, like, 'Tim! Let's make this Christmas EP.'"
The project aims to offer a different perspective than the perfect fairytale portrayed in most of the major Christmas movies and TELEVISION specials.
