Are we ready for Rough Copy? UK R&B Trio plan to take the US one note at a time



AGirlandHerHipHop.com recently had an opportunity to sit down with the UK's R&B group Rough Copy who is climbing their way to musical success after winning X-Factor UK despite having to leave a member behind due to visa issues that took founder Kazeem out of the group during the Judges' Houses stage in New York.

"(X-Factor) was emotional, fun, exciting...It was scary, describes the group. "It was a fairy tale story."

Kazeem, Sterling and Joey meet eight-years ago while Kazeem was working for a management firm that was scouting for a group and found Sterling and Joey at different venues and the rest is Rough Copy history. Influenced by the 90's R&B sounds of R. Kelly, Jodeci, Jagged Edge, D'Angelo, Prince, Mary J. Blige, Usher and Keith Sweat the trio is planning to release an album soon showcasing those influences.

"The album will drop next year hopefully. It has to be spot on. A lot of people are waiting for the Rough Copy album," explains Sterling.

While performing on a show with Omarion and another with Day 26, Pretty Ricky and J. Holiday (who knew they still got gigs) they discovered creativity can be found at the strip club and the guys plan to make a visit during their stop in Atlanta in June.

"Because we meet Pretty Ricky in the UK they was like when ya'll come down to the states...we gone take you to the strip club. We was like yeah man," the guys inform in unison in their best down south accent.

With the release of singles like "Same Formula" Rough Copy is prone to be the next to take over the States.

"We want to come to the States and kill it. Sam Smith done it, Adele has done it and unfortunately they're all white artist. We (black artist) need to do it as well," says Sterling.

Keep your ears tuned in for the melody filled Rough Copy take over.
