Stacy Barthe Discuss “BEComing” | Song-Writing | BET | & More with @MFWERadio from @EssenceFEST 2015

Like only the most daring and gifted of musical artists, Stacy Barthe transforms her own hurt into songs that uplift, inspire, and fortify the soul. On BEcoming—Barthe’s full-length debut for Motown Records—the Brooklyn-born singer/songwriter boldly details her experience with suicidal depression, her troubles with drinking, and the triumph and struggle of her 180-pound weight loss. Throughout the album, Barthe graces that storytelling with her gorgeously powerful vocals and the sophisticated songcraft that she first revealed in penning tracks for the likes of Katy Perry (“Hummingbird Heartbeat”), Rihanna (“Cheers”), and Miley Cyrus (“Adore You”). Raw and uncompromising yet stirring and sublime, BEcoming proves both aching and joyful in its exploration of the complexity of the human condition.

To create the slow-burning, genre-bending blend of R&B and soul heard on BEcoming, Barthe worked closely with executive producer Malay. Also teaming up with producers such as Benny Cassette (Kanye West, Sky Ferreira) and DJ Camper (Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown), Barthe relied almost entirely on live, organic instrumentation rather than programmed beats, samples, and loops. With featured artists including John Legend (who also serves as an executive producer) as well as Common and newcomer Ro James, the album achieves a timeless spirit but bears an urgency that makes even its quietest moments steeped in intensity and passion. “The album’s about my old self dying and about becoming the new me,” explains Barthe, who likens the metamorphosis captured on the album to a larva shedding its cocoon and emerging as a butterfly. “I used to weigh 380 pounds,” she continues, “so I’ve been cocooning all my life—waiting to become.”

It’s a simple query, famously crooned in 1971 by soul legend Marvin Gaye, amidst a continuing civil right struggle in a nation at war both domestically and abroad. It’s a question still being asked today. Yet Bilal, like Gaye, offers no answers, merely a deep pondering on the current times with his moody fourth studio LP, In Another Life . “I’ve always seen myself like a Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley or Curtis Mayfield,” the golden-voice singer says, pointing to three of his many musical inspirations. “They could speak politically, but still wanted people to have something to play at night, to make love.”

Bilal fully embraces that duality on In Another Life , informed by CNN headlines and producer Adrian Younge’s dusty melodies. On the uncanny lead single “Satellites,” he takes the perspective of an extraterrestrial visitor observing a world in ruin. “We’re making music that speaks to the times that we’re in,” says Bilal, who’s collaborated with everyone from Beyoncé to Justin Timberlake to Robert Glasper. “So we have to make something that people of the future can go back to and say, ‘This is the way it felt back then.’ There are beautiful, sweet moments on this album and there are dark moments.” Checkout our latest interview with Bilal from the Essence Music Festival 2015.
