For STACKS Magazine’s On The Block series, we scour the internet for new talent so that we can introduce them to our readers. Lately, the talent has been coming to our inbox. One such artist is a young lady by the name of Veronica V. She got the look, the talent, and drive to make her R&B career reach the top. In case you haven’t heard of her, peep her official bio below. Extremely talented vocalist, statuesque, beautiful, and humble are just a few words that can be used to describe Chicago songstress Veronica V. Veronica’s vocal talents were first discovered at the tender age of 5 while riding in the backseat of her mother’s car singing along with the radio to Shanice’s hit single “I Love Your Smile”. By the age of 9, Veronica sang in the choir of her mother’s church where she blossomed as a solo singer with a voice beyond her years and limitless potential. At 10 years old, she was part of a female duo where her vocal skills were paired with a young female rapper. This experience fueled her hunger to become a professional singer and opened the creative door as a songwriter. As a teenager Veronica’s passion for performing led her to sing at festivals, talent shows and anywhere there was a stage and a microphone. She continued to hone her skills as a performer by fronting the top cover bands of Chicago. Veronica V was introduced and shortly thereafter, teamed up with talented Miami producer Bigg D. Bigg D refers to Veronica as, “One of the most incredible young vocalist I have ever come across or worked with. Her 4 octave vocal range is incredible and effortless; she is destined for greatness once the public and the music industry hear her.” Veronica first debut single release was an up-tempo titled, “What Happened To Us” feat 2 Chainz. It was originally released in the UK, and then later released in the US. Her new single “On You” from her upcoming mixtape “XPOSED“, is a sultry seductive hard hitting ballad that will surely provide some serious ear therapy. The single is set to be released on Valentine’s Day. It looks to be perfect timing for Veronica V, with R&B clawing its way back to the top of the charts and hearts of consumers. Betty Wright legendary Soul/R&B singer, who influenced a generation of female singer-songwriters says, “Veronica reminds me of a tiger. She has that tenacity, a real voice and unusual beauty, but she doesn’t have to rely on her looks; she has talent. She comes correct.” Veronica is also an incredible songwriter, she’s written for the likes of Yung Berg, Gorilla Tech, Cool & Dre, T-minus, The Runners, Drop, Pollow Da Don, Timberland and many other talented producers.
