So I guess this is my first official, official blog post on ReverieLove.com. I have written on other blog sites before throughout the years & was stupid enough to delete most of my old entries so I guess I'm starting a new diary here..
I'm sitting in the studio right now with Louden & Enkrypt. Enkrypt is finalizing the coloring on my #WESTSIDE music video right now. I am hearing snippets of every part of the video over & over as she perfects the images & I am getting more excited with every second that passes.
I worked on cutting up this fucking video for days.. I started over about 4 times before I finally liked what I was making. It's always so challenging cutting music videos because it is so tedious & time consuming; however, it's something I really enjoy doing.
I love directing music videos. I love making visuals.
When I was growing up, my dad used to film me & my brothers so much. He loves documenting life. Maybe that's where I get it from. My dad actually made my first music video ever, Certified Fuck Up, when I was 18. He's super artsy. When I was really little, my brothers & I used to make lil home videos with his cameras. We would act out stories or scenes that we would imagine.
I always wanted to direct music videos but I never thought I would actually do it one day. I love bringing my visuals to life. I've directed/ co-directed almost all of my music videos. 1 thing I regret in my career is not giving myself credit on them. Back then I didn't realize how important it is to me that people know how involved I am with everything I release.
I haven't released a solo single since last December, which means it has been a full year now. In the world of today, for most people, that would be career suicide. Despite not releasing new music, I am at the peak of my career & on fire like never before. I feel like people don't just love my music anymore, they love me, they love who I am off the record as well, they love me as a person, as a friend, as the only one who understands them.. I used to think I was so alone with all the negative emotions & trauma I have endured in my life, but ever since I started to make music, & the more supporters I accumulate all over the world, the more I'm realizing that we are all going through very similar ups & downs in life. I have never felt more connected to people & the universe as I do today.
I often laugh at the irony of my existence, like, I hated myself for the first 25 years of my life. I hated who I was, I hated who I was before that, I hated myself so much that I never allowed myself to be happy, cuz I felt I didn't deserve happiness. The ironic shit here, is that the reason people love me is because they love who I am. I hate me. You love me cuz I'm honest about hating me. I just think it's hella funny. I've learned to laugh a lot more at life this last year. I've learned that you can either get offended or laugh- at every single fucking thing that comes your way. I've learned that choosing to laugh is a lot better lol.
I love my life now. Not everyday. Not every second. I still hate it sometimes to the point that I wish I had the balls to end it. Sometimes I get scared that I might just do it this time. Every day is different. But regardless of the hard times, I am realizing that I can't get the good times without the bad. It's impossible. It's the paradox of life. It's the balance of life. It's the ying & the yang. It's night & day. It's black & white, it's beauty & ugliness. You can't have ANYTHING in the universe without also experiencing its counterpart. I've learned & accepted & bowed down to this concept. Life has been a lot more enjoyable since I discovered this truth.
I wrote a lot more than I intended so I'm bout to cut this short. My new shit is about to blow you guys away. I'm so proud of me & my team & our progress. Big ups to Folcal Records, it's official.

'WEST SIDE' my 1st official single from DAS KLEINE drops tomorrow at 5pm. Enkrypt & I directed & edited the entire thing ourselves & Louden pimped it out with the special effects. Enjoy.

- Rev

  • Hey girl!
    Reverie your words are so right, sometimes you gotta slow down to win the race, I feel like your working hard ( I follow you en el snap and insta). I appreciate your honesty in all your work, because the moment my ears heard it- it gave me butterflies, your art made me tremble from the honesty in your work and the energy you put into it is so damn bold that it’s powerful- especially because your a Mujer chingona. I connect so much to your music, when I play it – it becomes my ally, you know? So please never stop shining and don’t forget to breathe in moments like you feel too much pressure is coming onto you. I hope to see you soon live! – Ariana R.

  • Peace Rev. I appreciate your honesty & truths. To share personal things so openly, especially with an audience you have is very admirable to say the least. With that said through our connected channels of energy in the universe I send out to you genuine, vibrant, positive, and peaceful energy and love!…
    Lastly, I want to share a book called I Ching or Yijing or “The Book of changes”. There are many versions but I recommend starting with a simple version first & go from there. One Love homegirl! ✌️

    Thank you for staying up on top of your life….. i know exactly how that goes. All the ups and downs. the good, the bad, the ugly. it is remarkable what we can endure and how we can transform our lives. We have to live and learn to appreciate life, just the way it is.
    Everyday it’s a struggle for us as young womxn of color – but it will only get better if we fight to make it better. THANK YOU. For taking your life, and sharing it. That does take so much courage to do what you have. I admired you when you were so famous and even now I wish you more success! You have set a fine example – keep going chola !
    Transforming your poison and turning it into medicine, that’s what it’s all about.
    See you soon! > record release party <
