1. Hi Mackenzie, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi I’m great! I’m very excited about the release of my new single “Laugh”.
2. Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Laugh”?
“Laugh” is an upbeat song that has a great summer vibe to it. Apart from the fact that the song is fun, it also has a deeper message for people not to take things so seriously. Everyone has a bad day, but you got to laugh it off don’t let things get you down.
3. Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I do write my own songs, but I wasn’t the writer on “Laugh”. But when I heard it, I instantly was drawn to it for two reasons.
1. The message, and..
2. I felt like it described my personality so well because I don’t get down and I don’t take life too seriously. I can always find a positive in every situation
4. Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes, so excited the video will be out later this month! Stay tuned for the final release date!
5. How was the recording and writing process?
The song was so much fun to record because in the chorus I laugh the lyrics ‘ha ha ha ha’ and we tried so many different laughs – some were really silly, but it was good fun!
6. Does acting influence your music and the other way around?
I think the two can run hand in hand because it’s all performing and one can help the other – although I’m so passionate about music. I certainly don’t act whilst singing because I feel everything I sing and stay true to myself.
7. What role do Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake plays in your music?
Michael was an incredible artist. I love the man – he was so talented. I used to sing a lot of his songs. Justin inspires me because he was a triple threat and manages a successful career as a singer, dancer and actor. I aspire to be all of that!
8. Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes! I’m always writing and working on new music, and at the moment I feel extremely confident in “Laugh” and all of the singles to come!
9. Any tentative release date or title in mind?
“Laugh” just came out and we’re really focusing there. So we don’t have definite dates for the second single yet, but I can tell you it’s gonna be LIT!
10. Any plans to hit the road?
Yes! I’m definitely going to be touring this summer, but final dates and decisions have not yet been made.. But I’m so excited to sing for my fans live!
11. What else is happening next in McKenzie Sol’s world?
My music video “Laugh” is coming very soon, then more music will definitely follow, and in between I’ve got a movie opening this summer – Pup Star 2 !! Make sure you’re following me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and musical.ly (@mackenzie_sol) for all the updates!
