‘Bad Habit’ Singer Steve Lacy Reveals Video Game Puts Him On “A Lot” Of Music

“Bad Habit” musician Steve Lacy, who topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart earlier this year, opened up about his musical influences during an interview with The Guardian last week.

The singer’s comments come near the end of a turbulent 2022 that included his viral TikTok hit “Bad Habit,” four Grammy nominations and a musical guest appearance on Saturday Night Live in November.

Former President Barack Obama also recently named “Sunshine,” Lacy’s song with Foushee, as one of his favorite songs of the past year.

Lacy, who has worked with stars such as Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar, told the Guardian that the ‘Guitar Hero’ video game helped him listen to “a lot of rock and guitar music” and – as he got older – he grew older. found pleasure in the songs of several other rockers.

“As I got older, artists like Paramore raised me. Mac DeMarco, Dirty Projectors, Vampire Weekend. Even Weezer – Undone is one of my [favorite] songs of all time,” said Lacy, who later added that he also loved indie actor Faye Webster.

Lacy described the melodies and vocals of Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams, who collaborated with Weezer in 2011, as “crazy” as she takes rock and makes it soulful.

He also detailed his love for Weezer’s wit and humor and revealed more about his fondness for “Undone – The Sweater Song.”

“The dissonance of Undone’s chord progression is really weird,” he said.

“For something like that to exist, that was super important to me in my musical journey, to be, like, ‘Oh, wow, you can make that sound fun and dope. “”

Lacy, who is often compared to music legend Prince, said he takes a little piece of everything he loves when creating music before naming the “Purple Rain” singer.

“I’m going to take some melodic approaches from Prince, but I’m going to play it like somebody else is impersonating Prince, like Jimi Hendrix is ​​trying to be Prince,” Lacy said.

“But I like to mix different approaches. It happens naturally. I never do everything on purpose. It’s just inside of me.
