Exclusive Interview: Miss Chay Bella Delves on Her Creative Tastes, Her Inspirations & Her New Single “I Want You”
“Hi African Hype, thanks for having me!”
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
“Of course, I’ve always been an advocate of following dreams, and I’ve been writing music since 8 years old. Music is my passion and my #1 outlet of expression. Years and years later, I never stopped dreaming, I never stopped learning about myself, and I never stopped learning about the industry. Never quit your dreams.”
Where do you originally hail from and where are you based now?
“I was born in the Bronx (New York City) and raised in Virginia. I’m based in the United States. Southern girl with city girl charm? Or is it the other way around?”
Congratulations on your latest track “I Want You”, how do you feel about the newfound success?
“I Want You is such a different track than I’m used to writing. I was in my feelings and the production of the beat really influenced where the track went. It was the right sound, the right emotion, the right feelings, at the right time. Music is very sensitive I must say. I am excited to see how far it will go and the audience it attracts! I can imagine playing at every festival with a live guitar.”
What was the inspiration behind the single?
“Wanting to move away and get out of a bad situation. At the time I wrote this song, I believe I was super depressed, surrounded by negativity, and I waited for anyone to rescue me. I let my guard down and was let down by those around me. I was waiting for a prince that never showed up to my door to whisk me away. I had hope though and that’s what got me through.”
Are there any specific elements you like to throw into your songs?
“Standout lines, catchy lyrics, natural catchy melodies, emotion, a storyline…”
What has remained as your constant source of inspiration throughout the years?
“Being the person that I looked up to as a kid. Being the best version of myself. Getting my family out of their situations. Being the princess my dad would’ve wanted me to be.”
Do you have any dream collaborations? Who are they?
“I want to collaborate with everyone, really!”
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
“I went through a lot to get to where I am today. And I love strawberry cheesecake!”
For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?
“Thank you so much for having me, I really appreciate it! I hope to visit Africa soon, perform at festivals, have meet and greets, and volunteer however I can. We all can follow our dreams and work together. I admire the beauty of your continent, and I want to bring more love, peace, and good energy. Have a great day! See you soon!”

Florida-Based Emcee H.A.M Comes Through With Some Lyrical Education in His “Art Official Intel” Banger.
Hamlet Bent, who wears the professional moniker H.A.M is a unique and versatile artist; in fact, he is one of the most diverse rappers and songwriters you will ever come across. His rapid rise in the music industry is truly impressive, but for the uninitiated, he defies all odds to deliver music whose lyrical content is not something you experience on a daily basis!
With a successful professional career in IT spanning over 20 years and his insatiable passion for music stacked deep in his own heart and soul, he decided to blend the two worlds together and come up with an enthralling and thought-provoking style of music that cuts across IT technology with such creative finesse. It’s safe to say that you really need a dictionary or Google by your side when you subscribe to this intelligently lyrical content!
H.A.M makes anthems that express the nitty-gritty of the IT world, from cyber security to social engineering hacks and computer networking technologies. Delivering with such unapologetic intensity over heavy boom-bap beats, you will find yourself interested and heavily invested even if you couldn’t give a darn what a computer is, let alone its deep terminologies.
If you are just here for the music, then there is room for you as you get to marvel at such swift and effortless lyrical efficiency; H.A.M always unleashes his lyrical dominance over heavy productions with a razor-sharp lyrical wit and command that is appealing to anyone whose musical itch is scratched by just listening to rappers deliver punchlines and bars, even when they don’t care about the message behind the lyrics!
Making headlines once again H.A.M is back with another earth-rattling and head-banging masterpiece dubbed “Art Official Intel”- a high-energy and invigorating banger that has been inspired by something that is actually turning into a sensitive global issue: AI, or if you like it, Artificial Intelligence.
A sensitive issue that is drawing intensive debate all across the world, every other person has a thing or two to say about this, and H.A.M makes his thoughts known under that bass-heavy blanket of melody.
According to H.A.M, AI is not that harmful if used appropriately, and he too understands where the jitters and grievous concerns are coming from. You have probably come across AI generated essays, pictures, and music with AI samples of artists singing other artists’ songs, unreleased and non-existent material, or dead artists coming up with new tracks…so many have been quick to label this scary and want AI to be restrained as soon as possible.
Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and H.A.M chooses to look at the positive impact AI is actually having on the IT and development world, which makes it a necessary tool of invention that can do good if only we allow it!
A hugely contentious issue that will keep on making headlines for as long as it can, I just want all music fanatics to gather here and enjoy this masterpiece, and if you are the one to decipher music and shred its meaning piece by piece, then “Art Official Intel” is a great assignment. If you are just here for the vibes, then there is no shame in it because H.A.M really brings them in plenty with this performance.
Whichever way you prefer to indulge in your music, the scene is set; follow the attached link and enjoy this first-class performance to the fullest!
