Hi Hudak, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hello, it’s Lil Hudak and I’m doing pretty good and staying positive.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Helpless”? Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
My latest single “Helpless” with Daniel Javan is a heartbreak song that helps all listeners to understand they are not alone and what they go through is what many others do also. It is very melodic and the combined vocals of the two artists really can touch your heart. “Helpless” has gotten 9,000 streams in just 3 days and is still growing fast! There are many people sharing and listening to this beautiful, and relatable song.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
We have just been contacted for a music video with an underground film company, and are planning on filming an amazing video in California or Florida, having Daniel come to the United States.
How was the recording and writing process?
The writing process was done with the help of a producer by the name of Valious, and Daniel’s perfect verses. I recorded this song in my own home with a decent studio setup. With family home it was hard, but I managed to finish the song on late school nights.
What role does Cleveland play in your music?
My city, Cleveland plays an important role to me. Not many artists or influencers come from this area, or Ohio in general. I am trying my best to become known, so I can show my city we are great. Trippie Redd, the very popular rapper from Ohio, has also played a role on me, showing that if he can do it, I can also.
With the major reception from your previous musical work – did you feel any pressure while putting this song together?
In my past I always looked to keep striving and making music. I was inspired by the amount of fans and love I got from my first release. With fame comes hate thought, so I tried to fix up any spots I missed or could do better on. I also always had bad timing and took forever just to finish something, so I did my best and got this beautiful song out there as soon as possible.
Do you tend to take a different approach when collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
When working with someone else I have a very different approach because it feels like they are in it with you, and you have more support from who you are working with, that could not be any better.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
With myself, Lil Hudak finally releasing after months on break. You can expect me to drop similar songs and a possible album coming this summer. I plan to collab with big artists I have worked or been friends with, and I am just going to keep grinding it out.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I have no plan for my next release date or title, but I can tell you I will always improve and it will be better than the last. I hope to release something at the end of this June 2021.
What else is happening next in Lil Hudak’s world?
Lil Hudak just got verified on TikTok as an official celebrity, and has completed this goal with much passion and time. He also has reached 25,000 Instagram followers, and began working and talking with very big influencers and artists. He also plans to get a very professional manager soon, looking for the best options. Hudak plans to go to California this summer and make plenty new music for his fan base.
