Back in the spring of 2001, India.Arie came with a different sound, giving her a big hit in “Video.” Capitalizing off the neo soul wave of the early 2000s, India.Arie became a big deal in the industry. As fate would have it, “Video” would be India.Arie’s only mainstream hit.
However, India.Arie has continued to drop classic music. In the neo soul world, India.Arie remains one of the biggest names in the genre, and she has more coming. This year will see India.Arie return with a new album.
India.Arie talked to Hip-HopVibe.com at Essence Fest, where she sat down with @MJThatMediaGurl. During their interview, she spoke about a man trying to kill her mother, which she first revealed in her “Being” special on Centric. Then, she discussed her new album, why she does her music, and much more.
