IMG_4102

Meet Jan Dready, the next breakout artist to look out for this year! Last week I got the chance to sit down with him for a one-on-one interview. In May he dropped his summer hit “Blue Face.” With the buzz from his single… he is getting attention from Hot 97 where he earned 9th place out of 100 contestants in the “Who’s Next” competition. He is also one of the top competitors in this year’s Coast to Coast lineup.  Here is what he had say!

1. What got you into music?

My uncle Roger. He was very musically gifted. He would always dance and sing around the house. He was like an older brother to me.

2. Which artists would you like to collaborate with?

Post Malone, Chris Brown, Kid Cudi, Kanye, Sabrina Claudio… there’s too many to name!

3. If you can have your fans remember one thing about you, what would it be?

How great of an actual human being I was!

4. If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Always stick to what you want and don’t let the opinions of others alter your true destiny. 

5. What instruments do you play?

My vocals and I’m currently learning guitar.

6. Which artists inspire you the most?

Kid Cudi, Kanye, and Nipsey Hussle

7. What artists have you learned from and what did they teach you?

I learned a lot from Nipsey Hussle. Mostly on how to be self-sufficient and have follow through.

8. Who are your favorite artists/what are your favorite albums?

Nipsey Hussle’s “Crenshaw” and Kid Cudi’s “Man on the Moon”

9. What advice do you have for new/upcoming artists?

Be as different as possible.

The reaction of my fans and how my music affects them.

11. What next is coming in the upcoming months?

Just keeping my head down and focusing on the elevation of my brand. Also more music is on the way!

12. How did you learn to sing/write/play instruments? 

When I was really young I started going to Southend Boys & Girls Club where a lady named Demmarie noticed my talent. She formulated a group around me where I would always be front and center. We performed all over, even out of state. I learned how to sing and write on my own from that experience. And now I am teaching myself how to play the guitar.

13. What is one thing you would like to change about the music industry?

How fickle it is.

14. What is the story behind your name?

My first name is Jan (pronounced John), it stems from the French language where I have family ties. Dready comes from the style of my hair.

15. Describe your sound.

Universal!

My Daily Fitness Routine & Ways I Stay Motivated

P1030901

If you are like me, finding time to workout is always difficult. I am always crammed with assignments and studying. And not being a morning person doesn’t make anything easier.

At the beginning of this school year I created a workout routine to help keep me fit and level out stress. I was self-motivated and consistent with my routine for about two months until my workload with school and work got intense.

Luckily I have found my fitness rhythm again and got back on track with my routine! I wanted to share my daily routine in case you are looking for something new to help keep you healthier and less stressed. I know from first-hand experience that keeping up with a routine is the hardest part so I’ll also share the ways I stay motivated.

I decided to have my workout session in the morning. Once I’m up for the day I am busy with classes, work, homework and preparing for exams and am usually exhausted by the time I get home. Having a morning workout routine also helps me start the day a little easier. It surprisingly motivates me to wake up in the morning because it always helps me get energy and feel refreshed. But first, coffee…

Most mornings I begin my workout routine after I’ve had my coffee, turned on CNN, checked my emails, Twitter, Snapchat, Covet and Vogue.com. Some mornings I’m finishing up the previous night’s homework or waking up for my 8am class so I just make at least 10 minutes to get a quick workout. On a normal day my routine usually takes 15-20 minutes. All the exercises I do can be done in your home. All you need is a yoga mat and dumbbells.

My workouts always begin with a 5-10 minute yoga session. I have never done yoga before until I started using the SworkIt app that my friend told me about it. SworkIt is a fitness app that guides you through multiple workouts such as strength, cardio, yoga and stretching workouts. It also allows you to customize each workout. I love the yoga exercises! You can choose from sun salutations, full sequences, yoga for runners, or pilates. My favorite is the full sequence workout. Yoga makes me feel amazingly refreshed and relaxed. It has helped me eliminate a lot of stress which as a college kid is inevitable.

The next step of my workout is crunches. I’ll start with at least 25 crunches and increase the amount of every week (at least by 5) until I get to 40 crunches. You can choose to do more or less, whatever meets your preference.

Once I finish my crunches I begin my low-weight dumbbell arm exercises. I use 5 pound dumbbells for these exercises. Be sure to pick the size that best fits you. I start off with 2 sets of 10-15 reps per arm and 1 set of 10 reps overhead. During the second week, I increase the amount of reps to 20 (25 at the most) for my arms and 15 for overhead. I usually don’t exceed past that.

The final part of my routine is squats. It is honestly my least favorite to do when I’m out of shape but once you’ve been doing them for awhile they get easier and give great results! I use my dumbbells while I do my squats. I find it easiest to do them in front of the mirror. It helps perfect your formation. You want to be sure to have feet shoulder-width apart and have your arms out directly in front of you. I recommend to start with 20 squats and work your way up. My goal is to work up to 50. The highest I ever got to so far was to 40.

As I mentioned before, maintaining motivation can be extremely hard sometimes! So here are a few tips on how to stay motivated and keep your fitness rhythm:

 1. Knowing that afterwards you will feel 100x better

Exercising is always a great way to relieve stress and get energy, especially yoga. If you struggle with always being stressed out or having a hard time with being tired in the morning I definitely recommend you try yoga! It’s life-changing, I’m telling you.

2. Create a Pinterest Motivation/Goals Board

Pinterest has been very helpful with helping me find motivation. Create a Pinterest Motivation/Goals Board and pin things that relate to your fitness goals. This is a good way to help decide on how you want to set up your fitness plan. I found it easiest to follow fitness Pinterest Boards.

3. Instagram

I’m not sure about you but I mainly use Instagram to see what my favorite muses/celebrities/YouTube personalities are up to. If you have Instagram you are probably already following people with similar lifestyles to you or people that motivate you. If not, follow people you find motivating or that interest you.

4. YouTube

I love watching clothing hauls, stylebook videos, hair regimes, fitness routines and anything that relates to my lifestyle. Following and watching YouTube Beauty & Lifestyle gurus is another big thing that always helps keep me motivated!
