Rated Next | Carl Chaze


How did you start making music?
I started out by doing covers on Vine in 2014. The videos started getting really popular so I made longer videos on YouTube after that. Eventually I started doing original music with my label and production team, and focused on growing my Instagram and Musical.ly

Where are you from?
I’m from a small town in the province of Quebec, about 20 minutes away from Montreal

Growing up who did you listen to?
I listened to a lot of stuff but Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown are a few artists that I had on repeat.

What inspires your music?
I sing about relationships and real life topics that I feel my fans can relate to. If they are going through something similar, then my music helping them during a tough time in their life is all I could ask for.

What’s the biggest city you’ve been to?
I would say New York City, that is very big! Toronto is pretty big too.


What’s your most favorite city to visit?
My heart has a special place for Los Angeles, I just spent a few weeks there this summer – it was amazing!

What city do you have on your list to go to before you die?
Luckily I am going on tour in August to Philly, NYC, Wildwood NJ and Long Island! but in the future hopefully I can tour in Hawaii, or some other tropical places haha

Tell us the motivation behind your next release:
Baddest Girl is about the special person in your life that no matter how long you’re apart for, you can always come back and pick up right where you left off… it’s an uplifting song and I hope you guys will love it like I do. It’s available everywhere as of July 28!
