Sound Off: Asher Angel
May 8, 2020
He is a singer, actor, It-Boy, and pure talent!
Asher Angel took some time to talk to Popular and tell us about his new projects and how he manages everything in his life.
Owner of incredible and dancing hits, the singer has captivating energy and does everything with a lot of love and dedication.
1. Tell us about your new single “All Day” and the inspiration behind it.
Now more than ever we need a song like All Day. It’s that feel-good vibe that makes you want to get up, dance, and have fun. I feel like finding time to smile and appreciate the things around us can be difficult during this time. I hope that All Day lends itself to that vibe.
2. You have a song called “One Thought Away” with Wiz Khalifa. How did this partnership happen?
That was a great collab. I was working in the studio with Hitmaka and we just finished recording the record. We were talking about who I thought would be a great feature on the record and Wiz is on my wish list. I have been a fan forever. Hitmaka reached out to Wiz, sent him the record and he jumped on it. I still can’t believe it. Wiz is a great guy. We had a chance to hang during the video shoot and I cannot say enough great things about him.
3. Your song “Chills” was featured on Apple Music, Spotify, and Youtube! How cool is that and what is the feeling of having so many streams?
Honestly, I recognize what a blessing it is. My goal is to continue to write and create music that resonates and authentically speaks to my fans and I. Ideally to make a difference in peoples’ lives and touch them in various moments. To be some part of their soundtrack of life.
4. How long have you been singing?
Almost my entire life – if you ask my parents. I found my love for the arts through musical theatre at a very young age. I never stopped and never intend to stop.
5. You are a complete artist! You sing, you dance and you are an actor. Is it hard to manage everything?
I don’t think of it as something that needs to be managed. I get to do what I love, feel lucky that I get to do it and fortunately I have a support system around me that encourages my passions. I don’t have to do a lot of the managing – so I get to really focus on the creative process. Maybe that changes as I get older. But right now, I just want to keep working and growing.
6. If you could work with any artist, who would it be?
7. Music idol?
8. Musically, have you ever fulfilled a dream?
Some dreams sure, but the dream is fluid. The first time in a recording studio was a dream. Writing my first song was a dream. Teaching myself instruments – all a dream. Then the dream matures and for me, that is the beauty of the art. It does not have to be limited in time or space.
9. What is the craziest thing that a fan has done for you?
Jumped out of a window of a moving car. That was pretty crazy and scary.
10. Perfect weekend?
Playing basketball, hanging by the pool, and eating my mom’s famous spicy tacos.
11. Karaoke Anthem?
Hallelujah. That’s probably the first song I sang and was a Karaoke staple of mine back in the day.
12. Dream Duet?
Taylor Swift. Yes, please.
13. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Still chasing what I love to do. Acting, singing….. creating.
14. What does popular mean to you?
Being respected and admired for the choices you have made to positively affect your circle of influence. Whether that be your family, friends, or strangers.
15. Do you have any upcoming projects?
Yes. I am working towards releasing a few more records then an EP and I also have some exciting acting projects that I am working on.
Besides “All Day”, Asher just released a new song called “Guilty” and we are pleased to share with you!
