There have been plenty of actors who have transitioned from their placements in front of the camera to their positions behind a microphone. Hollywood is filled with multi-talented artists who launch their careers in one category only to move into another once they reach a certain level of success, and Rome Flynn is taking a giant leap into music with his new single.
The former soap opera star and How to Get Away with Murder actor is no stranger to the music scene, but many fans aren't as familiar with his vocal talents. "I've been doing music before I started acting," Rome told us exclusively. "The acting just kinda took off, but I felt like this was the right time and the right opportunity to put more energy, pun intended, into my music career."
The Emmy winner recently shared his latest single, an R&B jam titled "Brand New" that's rumored to be on his forthcoming project, Energy. While he couldn't tell us an exact release date for his album, Rome did say that he planned to deliver Energy sometimes at the top of 2020. When asked about the theme of Energy, Rome explained that the foundation of the album is love.
"I feel like one of the few things that connects everybody is energy and also love," he said. "Love is a universal language and so is energy, so for me it's like the same... Either you're searching for it or you're in it trying to understand what it is that you're going through. So I feel like, when people hear music they can, one way or another, relate to it. I just felt like it was heavy on me to make an EP kind of surrounding that."
As we wait for the full project, check out Rome's single "Brand New" where he sings about a lover who has gotten herself into a relationship while he's having a hard time letting her go. Give the track a few spins and let us know what you think.
Don't tell me you're in love
You just let that n*gga cuff you up
I can't count you as a loss
If you still answer when I hit you up
But lately you've been out of line
