An MC created for this evolving melodic age of music, Music Artist Drewskiana, rapper out of Queens, New York, hit the scene in 2020 with a funkier version of Love Rap. Initially single handedly releasing music, he quickly found success with his debut track, Love Songiana. By the luck of the universe, he is starting off 2021 under management by Brooklyns very own artist/artist manager Will Noon, giving Drewskiana the time and ability to make more music for his amazing supporters.
Born as Andrew Woods, in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Westside Queens, Drewskiana got some of his inspiration from a couple of fellow New Yorkers, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and 50 Cent. He began rapping during his teenage years but it wasn’t until 2018 that he found his genuine passion for music.
After years of experimenting and searching for his niche, He dropped his debut track, Love Songiana, which yielded an impressive 1 million streams on Soundcloud in the span of about 5-6 months. Shortly after the releases success, he wasted no time, and he dropped “Plain Girl”, which is another melodic song focused on painting a picture for his listeners to visualize;, in order to better understand who Drewskiana is.
He is currently working on his upcoming project “Heartbroken Love Story” which will help to clear all doubts regarding Drewskiana’s abilities and help him solidify his name in the industry for years to come.
Here Candid talks with Music Artist Drewskiana on making of track Heartbroken Love Story / Love Songiana
Tell us about yourself ?
Hey My name is Andrew but my artist name is Drewskiana (Drew-ski-ah-nuh).
If you want to know where I got it from it’s just from me running around and calling all my friends their names with the iana at the end and it got to a point where people were saying that name every time. I seen them so I got used to it and just though I should make that my rap name because it would get noticed because it’s weird lol.
I’m from Astoria, Queens, NY. My goal in life is to go as high as I can in anything I put my mind to and help all the people around me and all the people that need the help I’m too greatful for already having nothing so whatever I could do to help others makes me happy but my for real goal is to take care of my sisters and my brothers and my parents because they all been risking everything for me and I feel like I need to do the same.
How long you been in performing arts ?
I been doing this for about 7-8 months but if you wanna be technical it’s been a year and a half now but I don’t really count the whole year because I barely had time to go to the studio and even focus on music because of this whole covid thing.
What was most attractive part for you to be in this industry ?
The most attractive part for being in this industry was when I made my first song and I was able to explain exactly how I felt and I was confused that I really just did that and it was actually good so me realizing i can do melodies and talk how I feel made me attracted to be here in the industry.
Share some experiences (good or bad ) any that made you grow in life or profession ?
A good experience is losing my trust in people because you never know who really likes you or you never know who really won’t switch and turn on you because that happened to me too many times as a kid and even now. I had friends that was really like family and they switched up on me because of lies that people were saying but that’s like god working his ways and removing people from my life. My pops used to tell me watch out for the friends closest to you but I thought of them as family and not friends. Also a bad experience is falling in love with the right or wrong person because it’ll always come back and bite you and just know that bite really hurts.
Who inspired you ? How do you work on creating your own signature style ?
Rappers like drake, aboogie and 50 cent inspired me the most. I worked on creating my own style naturally I gauess I didn’t really work on it until recently I learned how to talk about how things hurt because it was hard to do that before but I understand pain now and it drives me the most. I worked on my own style by finding my own melodies that sound different and twist a little and it makes me feel good when I do melodies i don’t know how to explain it but I get really hyper.
What do you want to convey through your music?
I want to convey through my music that you can talk about your feelings you don’t always gotta be gangster or have to be angry about things you can let that pain out, you can still be mighty or whatever but you can talk about things, us men have feelings too.
Story behind making of your new track / Album?
I’m making a EP called “Heartbroken Love Story” and it’s just me explaining myself on how my love life went and also on how people turn on you no matter what it is.
Any interesting trivia about making of song ?
Um I don’t know maybe you people could think on how do you know you can trust the people around you or how to you know things won’t stab you in your back no matter how good of a person you are or the good things you do?
People who you would like to thank ?
I would love to thank my cousin, my brother and my manager they been by me ever since I been taking music serious and I’ve only been getting better from there ever chance I got and I don’t want to lose them.
People who you would like to work with and people you idolize to be like professionally ?
I would love to work with Aboogie, drake, Jay Gwuapo and a whole lot of female rappers. I idolize Aboogie the most because imagine having unlimited flows and melodies he just makes me think of myself because that’s rare to be that good.
Where do you see your music 3 years from now ?
3 years from now I see my music being on every electronic device in the world and it’s blasting everywhere and I got people who look up to me because of my music.
How would you like to stretch your boundaries of genre in future projects ?
I would like to stretch my boundaries by doing more things and finding more thing to talk about but I really want to get myself able to story tell and tell my whole story in a song so everyone can feel how I feel or felt
Message for Fans and listeners ?
