Bianca Naidoo Explains How They Came Up With Lyrics For Riky Rick’s New AI Song. Riky Rick’s last words; “I’ll return a stronger man” were revisited in his recently released AI song titled “STRONGER.”
Riky Rick died on February 23, 2022, and his memory has been well-preserved, rather honoured, through the music and events he created in the music culture. The song Stronger was released by the Riky Rick Foundation in the Promotion of Artivism. This is to raise funds in order to promote campaigns for mental wellness.
Speaking on how the lyrics of the song came about Riky Rick’s wife Bianca Naidoo said that they gathered Riky’s tweets and they put them together into a song. “We didn’t make up the words but took the words from his social media post and put it together into a song, that is how it was constructed. We didn’t write the lyrics, his tweets that were put together to make this song are the messages that he was putting out there,” she said as per DRUM.
Bianca went on to highlight the song’s key players as well as the contribution of Ganza Beats, Riky’s long-time producer. “We took tweets where he was saying look after each other for instance, it was more of the recent tweets we put them together. We got the beat from Ganja Beatz who worked very close with Riky, we then got in a respeecher who came in, acted and role-played Riky once the tweets were put together and once that was done. The song was sent to Ukraine and they worked on building him, to not be far from him [to get as close to his sound] and takes what the respeecher had done to turn it into Riky’s voice. We started this process last year in June.” She added.
