“YOU CAN’T HAVE LOVE WITHOUT PURPOSE” – Vinnie Vidal
Vinnie Vidal is not new to the music industry. The Royal Play Records CEO started his love affair with music at age 8 after his mother bought him a keyboard. He spent hours learning to play by ear and changing compositions to be unique to him. He went on to compose and direct a church choir at age 14. Vidal has been making beats and custom music since he was 15; however, the artist was mostly working behind the scenes until February this year when he released his first Hip Hop/Rap single titled “Talk to Me”. He has since consistently been producing and releasing singles that are gaining momentum and attention due to his unique sound and the shockingly wide versatility he is able to infuse into the Hip Hop & Rap genre of music.
“LONG TIME”, Vidal’s latest single was just released on all platforms. “LONG TIME” is all about loving someone but being able to separate it in order to pursue your purpose. Vidal states “purpose is a greater value than love and you can’t have love without purpose”. The artist explains it’s been a long time, but he’s back and not only back empty-handed, but with a purpose!
The independent artist and CEO of an independent label, Vidal’s purpose is his mission of producing
uplifting and clean music to the genre. Vidal is focused on bringing fans music without the profanity,
sexual exploitation, violence, and social injustice currently portrayed in mainstream music and media. He focuses on producing music that brings self-awareness to the listener while being infused with positivity and the power to heal the mind. He understands what it takes to make quality music and which instruments are currently not being showcased. His focus is to broaden the genre and the fans listening experience by infusing these sounds in his custom made beats. He is bringing a much-needed shift to the hip hop genre with his custom composed sounds and uncompromising integrity. Vidal’s distinctive sound is an infused Eastern flavor blended into a modern Western sound while integrating jazzy instrumentals into rap, such as a saxophone.
Hailing from Baghdad but now residing in Canada, Vidal developed a team and label, Royal Play
Records. The CEO is a true testament to the rise of independent artistry, self-publishing, and promotion over the traditional route. He states he has learned to take a bit of information from all sources because there is always something to be learned from everyone. He cautions up-and-coming artists about relying solely on one person for success saying “no one will see your vision clearer than yourself or hustle harder than you. You can’t depend on others for validation or you are setting yourself up for failure.”
