Playing on the Background Cyrille The Angel – What You Sayin’ To Me
About The Transcend: What you sayin’ to Me… How did this song come to you?
Cyrille The Angel: Well, it is difficult to say… I just had that idea and I worked on it and it gives you this song out here. So far it is one of my best song and I have always loved it as it is.
About The Transcend: Indeed, it is an incredible song. But what did you try to express?
Cyrille The Angel: What you sayin’ to Me? I wanted to know what my haters were sayin’ to Me. What were they tellin’ Me. I had no answer as always. I just talked about what I did and what I went through to be here.
About The Transcend: You rap during the whole song without stop. I mean how did you come to that?
Cyrille The Angel: I worked hard on this song and I made it to this incredible point. It is an incredible song and I have loved what I did so far. It wasn’t easy to do it. When I made the instrumental, it wasn’t easy to make it. It wasn’t easy to write it and perform on it all. I had to dig deep. And it is what I did. It is sincerely what I did.
About The Transcend: I see. You talk about “Bena Kasai”. It means children of Kasai. What happened?
Cyrille The Angel: You know a part of me is Luba. Luba is the people from the South of Congo, DR, Africa. And the people were persecuted during 2016, I think. And lot of people fled to Angola. So in memory of some people dead, I wrote this verse.
About The Transcend: Is your song What You Sayin’ To Me an expression of a Self trying to Transcend and surpass all other sphere of his life?
Cyrille The Angel: Well, kind of. It is a song so Original and so new to Me. It is how I want my Music to be. The Rhythm is incredible and the saxophone…
About The Transcend: Yes… The Saxophone.
Cyrille The Angel: The Saxophone is incredible. I had to push it further. To say more… and this is what happened. It is an incredible song so far.
About The Transcend: I see. Well, we all love it. But tell me, how would you perform it live?
Cyrille The Angel: It is a dream of mine to perform it Live although it is a bit difficult. It is a Dream of mine and I have loved what I have done on it. I hope I can soon and I will get ready for that. It is what it is and it is sometime hard to re-perform it at the level recorded but you have to think about your people and I think if I can do it without playback that will be amazing.
About The Transcend: Definitely amazing… definitely. What do you love the most on this song?
