JR Castro Talks Being Discovered By Timbaland
JR Castro bust onto the scene in 2015 with his Migos-assisted single “Get Home” which became radio gold. The Las Vegas-native has since followed up with a stream of buzz singles “Never Be The Same,” “FMN,” “That Sh*t Go,” and “M.O.B.,” determining to fit into the ranks of Ginuwine and Babyface combined.
His image is a mix of sex symbol for the ladies but just enough street grit for some fellas to appreciate, and in a time where it’s not popular for artists to call themselves “R&B artists”, he has no problems with the term. He recently spoke with Singersroom about bringing back those good vibes for the ladies, the lucky night he was discovered by Timbaland, his forthcoming projects, and much more…
How did Timbaland sign on to executive produce the following, upcoming project, You?
I met Timbaland in Vegas backstage one year at a Justin Timberlake concert concert in 2014. He heard my music going around the city, being in Vegas. At the time the music I had out was strictly in the city and he got a hold of it. He thought it was dope. It was a blessing for me as it was Timbaland.
