Thomaz spoke to the Von Boozier Twins about the release of her new music video “FIGHTER”and her next chapter as she rises to the top of the US charts.
What is the message behind the song “FIGHTER”?
BT: When you hit rock bottom in life, feels like the world and everything is against you and you feel like there’s no way out of that dark place – that’s when you, must find the strength to fight. Fight for your life, dreams, and everything you stand for. Nothing and Nobody can destroy you – you fight until the battle is won. And when the battle is won – you feel indestructible, standing on top of the mountain, raising your fist up to the sky, shouting: Didn’t I tell you I’m a fighter?
What was your driving force to push through adversity and fight?
BT: The lyrics are based on my own story and childhood. I come from a home, where there was verbal and sexual abuse. The worst time, was when I was kept in my room for months, constantly being told that I was a Ni***er, worthless that no one loved me I should kill myself. At one point I was standing in front of my open window on the 5th floor and I knew, either I was going to give up and end my life or run away and save my life. That was my driving force. I felt I had no choice, either live or to die. I had to prove to myself and the people who hurt me that I was worthy of living.
What’s Next For BB Thomaz?
BT: 1st: My EP, called “I’m OK” will be released in March I’m so excited about it, all of the songs on that EP have such a deep meaning, like my single “FIGHTER”. There are so many broken souls in the world – just like me – that I want to empower with my songs and messages. Messages about fighting and never giving up about self-acceptance, about dreaming and believing in your dreams and yourself….
2nd: I recently launched my own “FIGHTER PODCAST”, which I want to reach as many people as I can. This podcast is all about motivating and inspiring people all over the world to believe in themselves and their dreams. Ever since I overcame my struggles, I always wanted to help others and this podcast is my opportunity to speak to people, to give them a pep talk… something we all need from time to time when we get a little whiny and want to give up
