Rising Atlanta R&B singer Rene Bonét talks about life and shares some of her thoughts and personal struggles as an independent artist. Bonét who was recently featured on Revolt TV for her latest visuals “Trendsetter” and “Shawdy” talks about how working hard and staying consistent awarded her the recognition of her local newspaper in her hometown Leasburg Virginia.
During the interview Bonét born Rikita Rene Lincoln shares how difficult it was for her just to get through high school, feeling too different and difficult to get along with. She said:
Once I graduated from high school I just left-Bonét
Living in a small town with nowhere to go was difficult for a creative mind. This situation eventually led to the artist moving her focus and career to Atlanta GA. When she got here, she struggled-Bonét. These difficulties force her to live in her car. Rene mentions living in her car for months at a time, refusing to give up and spending every penny on creating music.
In 2014 Rene Bonét is introduced to the late Grammy award-winning engineer and producer Alvin Speights who eventually took Bonét under his tutelage making Bonét a force to be reckoned with. Every day she did something, there is not a day that goes by that she was not creating-Rene Bonet.
Bonet shares her thoughts on the necessity of having a budget to finance your dreams. She mentions how money is the second most important thing when you’re an artist- talent being the first. She can be the best musician out there but if she didn’t have money to promote it then no one will ever know her as a music artist.
