Pierre Bless is no stranger to being a smooth player in the game. In an era where self-love, social media and “vibes” are trending to overcome the anxiety-provoking Pandemic, Pierre Bless enters the scene full of positive energy, hoping to empower the ladies with a fun new bop. His newest viral hit single “What’s Ya Sign” samples Biggie Small’s “Big Poppa” lyric, “What’s Ya Name, What’s Ya Sign” shouting out all the women who are in tune with their zodiacs. So far the hit has been featured on several radio shows including The Breakfast Club, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, The Steve Harvey Morning Show and The Sheryl Underwood Radio Morning Show. The infectious tune has attracted over 250 women influencers, such as reality stars Laura Govan (@lauramgovan) and Angel Love Davis (@iloveangel) who have featured the song in their Instagram stories along with their zodiac sign. “The number of shares is growing organically every day.”
Pierre Bless was born in Nuremberg, Germany but moved to Albemarle North Carolina two years later where he was raised for most of his childhood. Rapping was a casual hobby for the independent artist as a teenager. His friends would create beats to Cash Money lyrics-Pierre would hop on the beat out of nowhere with his freestyles. Once he took his skills to the school talent show and won, he figured he’d take music more seriously, studying his favorite artists and even using the prize money from the talent show to purchase studio equipment. He recalls perusing popular magazines like XXL and The Source, admiring his favorite hip hop artists’ lifestyles, even recording episodes of Rap City The Basement on VHS tapes.
The independent artist’s sound can be compared to the likes of icons Nas and Jay Z. Bless appreciates Nas for his renowned ability to master lyrical storytelling and combines that with an appreciation for Jay Z’s smooth, unique beat selection, heavy on the horns, percussion and live instrumentals. Pierre’s brand and message to his audience rebukes the short-lived trends. Rather, he urges his fans to “Spread Love”, grounded in the Law of Attraction. This message inspired his name, reminding his fans that every day is a blessing!
Pierre Blessing is already gearing up for several musical projects to come in 2022. Right now, the music video for “What’s Ya Sign” is in the works. He dropped a record titled “F.E.A.” ft. DJ Drama in Summer 2021 and is working on the visual. “Vision Board” is a project to be released later in the year. He also stated that he plans on more live performances.
“I’ve performed at main stages at SXSW and opened up for Jacquees, Key Glock, Asian Doll and Toosii in 2021. I’m just now finishing a National tour, a regional tour and a HBCU college tour in 2021. I’m constantly performing so stay tuned for upcoming tour dates.”
With such a busy schedule, Pierre Bless is steadily reminded of his why: his daughter, Zuri. “Zuri is my number one motivation. I want to make millions, billions even to create a clear
pathway of success for her and her future siblings. I also just enjoy the process of growth. Experiencing myself mold into something greater over time is very gratifying. I can do that repeatedly for years to come.”
When not consumed by his music career success, Pierre also runs a homecare agency in Charlotte, NC. His future plans include starting his own record label, travel, and delving into more business franchises.
