‘It Makes Me Happy To See Other People Joyous’ Krizz Kaliko Interview

Strange Music conducted another Krizz Kaliko interview all about his latest hit release GO. In this one, Krizz talks about the inspiration behind “Happyish,” “More,” and “Outta Line.” He also talks about how he was inspired by 80’s music. That’s the source of a lot of the sound for this breakthrough album. He even gave a little insight into what it’s like to work with him, especially working with his wife.

Krizz first performed “Happyish” for Behind the Spotlight and it’s touched many hearts. It’s that idea that you may look happy, but you’re really not. The inspiration for this song is priceless.

Was there any specific event that helped you write that song [Happyish] or just your life in general?

It’s a funny story actually. I’ve talked about being depressed and was looking out my bedroom window. I was like, “I should just jump out of this window right now”, then I thought to myself, “well, it’s only about twelve feet off the ground, so I’ll probably just sprain my ankle”. I kinda laughed to myself and then thought, “dang man, at this moment I was kinda depressed, but now I’m laughing”. So, I’m not really happy, but I’m happyish. That album just took its own life. I felt like it wrote itself because everything just fell into place.
