RMG’s Byron Juane dropped his new song “Play Too Nice” today. The song is from his upcoming project Hopeful Soul. He took some time after a red-eye flight to Arkansas to answer questions for Fast 5 Fridays.

1. What is the general message behind this song?

The general message is an attempt at depicting a familiar cycle my generation puts each other through when it comes to love. A lot of us are so afraid and guarded to give love a chance that it causes us to potentially be blinded to someone who would give the world to protect our hearts.

2. How did you get inspired to create it?

A recent heartbreak I encountered. I was talking to a girl I really liked but she was so afraid to give me a chance just because of her past hurt. Despite the fact that she knew I would care for her heart. This experience lead me to create the song

3. Who produced the song and how’d the production come about?

Cardec Drums produced it. It honestly came from a quick FaceTime session. We always create via FaceTime and we said we wanted a summer banger and ‘Play Too Nice’ came about

4. Can you explain what this song is a part of? Will it be the start of something big to come?

This song is the first single from my upcoming R&B project Hopeful Soul that drops May 31st! And it’s available for pre-order right now

5. Why should people listen to this song or your music in general?

I believe people should listen to my music because I am trying to create a sound for hope. A lot of times people get so lost in the sound of a record they forget the message. So recently I’ve put all my energy into making music that matters and provides a chance for people to truly believe everything will be alright regardless of the situation. There is always hope at the end of the day.
