TQ is hot. And his single Bad Man, exudes confidence and sexiness. It has a grown, spicy, cool appeal with an up tempo beat guaranteed to have you on your feet. In the words of TQ, “you don’t know what it’s like to be the bad man.” Let’s find out what being a “Bad Man” is all about. Follow me as we journey through the world of the bad man of R&B, TQ.
Renisha Marie: Who is TQ?
TQ: Terrance Quaites, Songwriter.
Renisha Marie: Tell the world about your project.
TQ: Album Legendary on iTunes NOW! I have a single featuring Mystikal called “BAD MAN” that’s starting to get a little love on the radio.
Renisha Marie: What inspired your new album Legendary?
TQ: My life. I always write about the things I go through. I think it’s the best way to connect. We all go through a lot of the same things in different ways. When I sing about those things, it creates a reaction in people; when they can relate to your substance you get fans for life… That’s Legendary, doesn’t happen much these days.
Renisha Marie: How would you describe your music?
TQ: Reality R&B.
Renisha Marie: When did you know music was what you wanted to do?
TQ: When all my friends got big and I stayed the same size. No more football (Laughter).
Renisha Marie: What inspired your hot single Bad Man?
TQ: Thanx! I watched Shaft, Superfly, and a couple other Blaxploitation films and I wanted to take it there. I’m a big Curtis Mayfield fan and I wanted to do something that was over the top cool like him. Fresh gave me the perfect beat for it.
Renisha Marie: What was your biggest opportunity in your music career?
TQ: Gaining back my catalog one-hundred percent. I wrote a lot of songs for a lot of people. I own it all now.
Renisha Marie: What has been your biggest challenge?
TQ: Doing my music my way. I wanted to be as uncategorized as I could. People think in genres so whenever I’ve gone against the grain of R&B and Hip Hop it’s hard for people to accept. Work in progress.
Renisha Marie: What makes your music stand out from other artist?
TQ: I don’t think people really care about substance in music anymore. I think my music means a whole different thing to my fans than other artists to their fans. I want my music to be thought provoking… Still.
Renisha Marie: Tell the world what to expect from TQ in the near future.
TQ: My video for “BAD MAN.” You guys are gonna love it. We really took it there. Diamond smuggling, Feds on the tale, high speed car chases, set in the 70’s along with the costumes to match the period. It’s very creative. Looks more like a movie than a video…Catch me live all over the place real soon too… Full band baby.
Renisha Marie: What advice do you have for up and coming artist?
TQ: Mind your paperwork.
