Last week we we’re first introduced to lovely sounds Texas-based singer Wednzday, who first caught out attention with her smooth R&B cut “Wednesday Night,” which turned out to be a cover version of a song from PartyNextDoor.
Following her first release Wednzday returned with her single “Sorry,” featuring Houston rap veteran Trae tha Truth, becoming a fan of her work I reached to chat it with her and she was cool enough to respond.
Who is Wednzday?
I was born on Ash Wednesday and consequently I was named Ashley. My stage name used to be Ash Wednesday but I dropped the Ash so that I wouldn’t offend anyone’s religious beliefs. Wednzday is dope to me b/c I love the darkness and the real matter of fact point of view of Wednesday Addams too. No one celebrated the day of the week Wednesday. It’s a forgotten unappreciated day. Ive been doing this music thing so long I kind of feel forgotten, I’m the middle child of RnB with something to prove.
