Vintage V has been honing her vocal and song writing talents for the past decade. I recently got to hear her perform at the Apache Cafe for the monthly installment of the Dirty Hollywood Artist Showcase. My highlight for the night was when the songstress moved into her response to Drake‘s track “Marvin’s Room” from his second studio album Take Care. On “Marvin’s Room”, after a few too many cups of that Rose and XO, Drake drunk dials his ex-girlfriend to tell her how lonely and frustrated he is. What’s a girl to do when she has moved on and has a new man? Vintage V gives you a listen to the other side of the conversation with “Marvin’s Room 2.”
Vintage V’s “Marvin’s Room 2”
I love Drake as a artist. I was drawn to this song and felt it conveyed a great story from a guy’s point of view, however I wanted to put a spin on it from the imagination of a female. The next move for the romance depicted in “Marvin’s Room 2” song is actually a real life ending of the relationship. “She” finally leaves the destructive relationship and Is living her best life single loving herself. I have a follow-up song that will be on my upcoming EP, Saturday’s Oxygen, entitled “Safe with me” – Vintage V
